Travis Kelce plans to play “until the wheels fall off” as he signs new contract with Chiefs

Travis Kelce, the star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, is showing no signs of slowing down as he recently signed a new two-year contract extension with the team. At 34 years old, Kelce is determined to play “until the wheels fall off,” as he expressed in a recent interview.

The new contract makes Kelce the highest-paid tight end in the league for the first time in his career, with $17 million fully guaranteed this year and a commitment to stay with the Chiefs through at least 2025. Despite turning 35 in October, Kelce is not thinking about retirement just yet.

“I really can’t put a timeframe on (retirement),” Kelce said. “I love coming to work every single day. I know there’s opportunities outside of football for me, but I still have a passion for the game.”

Kelce’s dedication to the sport is evident in his performance on the field. Last season, he helped lead the Chiefs to their second consecutive Super Bowl victory and was a key player in their postseason run. With 907 career receptions and 11,328 career receiving yards, Kelce ranks fourth all time among tight ends in NFL history.

Off the field, Kelce has also made a name for himself with his celebrity status, including his relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift and his popular podcast, “New Heights,” which he co-hosts with his brother, Jason Kelce.

As Kelce continues to excel on the field and expand his brand off the field, fans can expect to see him dominating the gridiron for years to come. With his talent, work ethic, and passion for the game, there’s no doubt that Kelce will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the NFL.
