Chiefs extend Travis Kelce’s contract

The Kansas City Chiefs extended Travis Kelce’s contract on Monday, keeping the star tight end in Western Missouri for at least two more seasons.

News of Kelce’s extension was first broken by NFL insider Ian Rapoport on Twitter:

This move will ensure that Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target remains on the field through the next few years of the Chiefs’ budding dynasty and dispels any rumors about Kelce’s potential retirement.

Few players in the NFL make more of an impact on their team than Kelce, who has become one of Kansas City’s most beloved sporting icons. A three-time champion, the All-Pro pass catcher figures to play a key role in the Chiefs’ effort to secure Kansas City a third-consecutive Super Bowl title next season.

Chiefs fans on social media sites were thrilled to see that general manager Brett Veach got a deal done with Kelce.
