‘2 Minutes Ago’ Nine-time Pro Bowler Travis Kelce steals title from Darren Waller of the New York Giants, who is making $17 million by earning a salary of $17.125 million per year after chiefs sign him to new contract, making him the highest-paid tight end in the NFL

The Kansas City Chiefs know better than to screw around with a good thing, announcing on Monday that they’ve signed star tight end Travis Kelce to a new contract that reportedly makes him the highest-paid tight end in football.

 

 

 

 

It isn’t, however, an extension as initially reported. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero corrected his earlier report that Kelce’s new deal was an extension through the 2027 season. Instead, he’s getting a raise to $34.25 million on the remaining two years of his existing contract that runs through 2025. He was previously due $30.25 million over those two years.

The new deal pays Kelce an average salary of $17.125 million per year. That would make him the highest-paid tight end in the NFL, stealing that title from Darren Waller of the New York Giants, who is making $17 million.

Kelce, 34, is a nine-time Pro Bowler who has been by quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ side for all four of the Chiefs’ recent Super Bowl appearances, all of which have come in the last five years and have resulted in three trophies. He’s caught 907 passes for 11,328 yards and 74 touchdowns over his 11-year career, and from 2016 through 2022 Kelce put up at least 1,000 yards in each season. He was also a first-team All-Pro four times.

And speaking of Mahomes, he was absolutely thrilled to see that the Chiefs’ head honchos rewarded Kelce with a new contract.
