With Travis Kelce in the news for dating billionaire singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, and with his brother Jason Kelce recently being included in People magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive” list, the two brothers are a familiar duo in football. Travis Kelce, who plays as Tight End for the Kansas City Chiefs, is not only known for his fashion game but has also appeared in countless ads. So, how does his brother, who plays Center for the Philadelphia Eagles, compare to him in terms of net worth?
The difference between the two’s net worth is not as big as one might think, despite the huge difference in their popularity. So, how much do the two brothers earn from the NFL and their various brand deals?
How much does the NFL pay Jason and Travis Kelce?
Travis Kelce’s total net worth is $40 million. He began playing in the NFL in 2013 and has been a part of the Chiefs ever since. He’s easily counted among the best tight ends in the history of the league and also gets rewarded handsomely for his performance. In 2013, he had signed a 4 year, $3.12 million deal with the Chiefs, and then in 2016, negotiated a 5-year, $46 million extension. His contract included $22 million in guarantees and his average annual salary comes to approximately $14 million.
Jason Kelce started playing in the NFL 2 years before his younger brother in 2011. He has a total net worth of $30 million, which is just $10 million less than his brother. This is interesting considering that the tight end position is a more crucial part of a team’s offense than the center position. In 2014, the elder Kelce signed a 6-year, $37.5 million contract extension with his team, which brings his average annual salary to around $9 million.
