Since the draft year, the Kansas City team looks heavily dependent on their veteran tight end Travis Kelce who has been leading the Chiefs for more than two decades and has already gifted the team with two Super Bowls and many more accomplishments.
Although the 33-year-old is playing a gigantic role in the teams’ offense as the No. 1 option for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, recently the tight end has gotten hold of another big role.
Travis Kelce takes on the coaching role
From last off-season, responsibilities on the shoulder of Kelce are turning high following the trade of Tyreek Hill, moreover, JuJu Smith-Schusters’ departure from the team likely led the tight end to take extra pressure on him.

The Chiefs training camp will run from July 23, so Kelce is having an idle time and the Chiefs’ star player in this prime opportunity has debuted another role to teach some other tight ends his greatness in the field at the annual Tight End University.
After bagging many accomplishments as a player, the seven-time Pro Bowl tight end is also expanding his supremacy on play through his leadership skills as the teams’ head coach Andy Reid once stated, “Travis just keeps growing as a player, leader, person.”
Is Travis retiring??
The Tight end will turn 34 in October, hence speculation has arisen ahead of the season about his possible retirement. However, the player who recorded a career-high 110 receptions for 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, feels no urgency of saying goodbye to football regarding his productions on the field which are uprising day-by-day.
“Until the wheels fall off, baby,” he cited.
The TE GOAT doesn’t appear to be slowing down either, rather appearing better with his age, who recorded missing only three games in his career.
“I love this game, man. I know I’m gonna miss it when I’m done playing. I hear you on that [being able to play] and that’s a business decision I’m sure I’ll have to make at some point in my life, but for right now I’m in this building wanting to win football games, man,” he stated.
Following a stellar season, the lethal duo Travis and Mahomes have already led the Chiefs to finish the regular season with a 14-3 record and are hoping to keep track this season also.
