Travis Kelce Inks 2-Year Contract Extension Making Him the Highest-Paid Tight End in the NFL

Travis Kelce is pulling up to Arrowhead Stadium — for at least the next two years!

The NFL star, 34, agreed to terms on a new two-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs on April 29 worth more than $17 million a year, which will make him the highest paid tight end in the league, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported.

Kelce’s longtime agent Mike Simon negotiated the deal, in which the financial details were not immediately disclosed.

Through the 2023 season, the highest-paid tight end in the NFL was Darren Waller of the New York Giants, who makes $17 million per year. Kelce was previously ranked fourth in the league with an annual contract value of $14.3 million, according to Front Office Sports.

Patrick Mahomes shared his excitement about the news that he would be continuing to work alongside his frequent target — with whom he broke the long-held record set by Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski for most postseason touchdowns in NFL history last season.

“I told yall I’ll never let him leave!! Congrats my guy!,” the quarterback, 28, wrote on X Monday.

The duo last connected while at Mahomes’ charity gala in Las Vegas over the weekend, in which Kelce caught a pass from the quarterback while in the audience, where he was seated with girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Kelce’s manager, André Eanes, also celebrated the news on X. “I can’t think of anyone more deserving! Congrats @tkelce! #LeGoat,” he wrote.

Kelce nearly posted his eighth straight 1,000-yard season in 2023, falling short by 16 yards. The nine-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro had 93 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns last season.

While Kelce has emotionally navigated his own feelings about his brother Jason’s NFL retirement, he revealed late last year that he thinks about his own retirement “more than anyone could ever imagine.”

In an interview with WSJ. Magazine, his coach lauded Travis’ “phenomenal pain tolerance,” but the bruising can add up — after 11 years in the league.

“That’s the only thing I’ve never really been open about … the discomfort. The pain. The lingering injuries — the 10 surgeries I’ve had,” Travis said, and added that he still feels “every single surgery to this day.”
