Chiefs TE Kelce signs four-year extension
Travis Kelce put pen to paper Friday morning on a four-year extension with the Kansas City Chiefs reportedly worth $57 million.

Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes took to social media to express his excitement about Kelce’s deal, tweeting: “6 MORE YEARS!!!!!!!”
Kelce, 30, recorded 97 receptions for 1,229 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games last season. He has 507 catches for 6,465 yards and 37 touchdowns in 96 career games since being selected by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
The University of Cincinnati product has made five straight Pro Bowls (2015-19) and was an All-Pro selection in 2016 and 2018. He helped lead the Chiefs to a Super Bowl title in the 2019 campaign.
