Travis Kelce insists he is NOT the greatest tight end ever despite recent opinions


Travis Kelce insists he is NOT the greatest tight end ever despite recent opinions… as Kansas City Chiefs star jokes Patrick Mahomes has helped him boost his numbers!

Despite two Super Bowl rings and the fourth-most career receiving yards by a tight end – at just 33 years old – Travis Kelce does not think he’s the greatest ever at his position.

Kelce, who is fresh off beating the Eagles in the Super Bowl last month and hosting SNL earlier in March, was asked Wednesday where he stacked up historically.

‘Nah, there’s a lot of great tight ends out there,’ Kelce told TMZ. ‘I can’t just say I’m the best.’

 ‘I know I’m taking advantage of the situation, though,’ he added, alluding to the Chiefs’ high-powered offense led by Patrick Mahomes.

With 10,344 (regular season) yards, Kelce trails just Antonio Gates, Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez all time.

However, Kelce ranks as the most efficient tight end of all time, with his 71.8 receiving yards per game nearly seven yards ahead of Rob Gronkowski in second place.

The Chiefs star recently displayed his talents off the field as well, receiving plenty of plaudits for his performance on SNL on March 4.

Kelce cracked jokes in front of his older sibling and Eagles offensive lineman, Jason, a little less than a month since the Chiefs’ 38-35 win over Philadelphia in Glendale, Arizona.

‘You know, people keep asking me what it was like to beat my brother in the Super Bowl, and it was pretty awkward,’ Travis told a packed audience, including his mother, Donna, and father, Ed.

‘Especially because after the game, we had to ride home together. Our mom drove us there in her mini van, just like the good old days.’

However, Kelce downplayed his performance on the iconic show to TMZ.

‘I don’t know if I’m an actor,’ he said. ‘I had some fun on there though.’

Kelce led the Chiefs in receiving in Super Bowl LVII, totaling 81 yards on six catches, including a game-tying touchdown in the first quarter.
