Chiefs sign tight end Travis Kelce to five-year, $46 million extension
The Kansas City Chiefs have rewarded Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce with a blockbuster contract. He's now the second-highest paid tight end in the league. The five-year contract extension is worth $46 million, according to a league source. It includes $20.5 million guaranteed. Kelce has caught 139 career passes for 1,737 yards and 10 touchdowns. "Today we reached an agreement with Travis and his representatives on a contract extension,” Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said. “He’s a talented football player that has become an important piece to what we do offensively. Travis is a high-character guy and a leader in our locker room.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
