The Kansas City Chiefs are considering a tight end to replace Travis Kelce if he eventually chooses acting over the NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs standout Travis Kelce, a key figure in the NFL, remains undecided about the endpoint of his illustrious career, despite acknowledging his extensive time in the league.

During Tuesday’s Chiefs minicamp, Kelce addressed inquiries regarding his retirement plans but provided no definitive answers.

“I can’t put a specific timeframe on it,” Kelce told the media. “I enjoy coming to work every single day. Of course, I recognize there are opportunities beyond football for me. But when I’m here, I feel like a kid again.”

At 34, Kelce is aware of the stage of his career but is determined to continue playing as long as possible.

“I’m going to keep playing until the wheels fall off. Hopefully, that’s not anytime soon,” he said. “It’s clear that I’m closer to the end of my career than the beginning. I need to ensure I’m prepared for life after football as well.”

Last season, Kelce’s statistics saw a slight decline. He managed 93 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games, a drop from his 2022 performance of 110 catches for 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns in 17 games, which earned him All-Pro honors.
