Reports: Chiefs adjust Travis Kelce’s contract; now highest-paid TE

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a new two-year deal that makes the nine-time Pro Bowl selection the NFL’s highest-paid tight end, according to multiple reports.

Kelce’s deal was quickly celebrated by Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

“I told yall I’ll never let him leave!! Congrats my guy! @tkelce,” Mahomes said via X.

The Chiefs signed head coach Andy Reid and general manager Brett Veach to contract extensions prior to the draft. Mahomes signed a 10-year deal in 2020.

Kelce, 34, was set to become a free agent after the 2025 season. The new deal replaces the final two years on his existing contract, a four-year, $57.25 million deal he signed in August 2020.

Kelce led the Chiefs with 93 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns in 2023. Kelce sat out Week 17 against the Chargers, forgoing a chance to stretch his streak of consecutive 1,000-yard seasons to eight in order to enter the playoffs healthy.

He was due to be fourth in the NFL in annual salary behind Darren Waller (Giants), T.J. Hockenson (Vikings) and George Kittle (49ers) in 2024.

Kelce has 907 receptions for 11,328 yards and 74 touchdowns in 159 regular-season games with the Chiefs since he was drafted in the third round in 2013.
