KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs and star tight end Travis Kelce have agreed to a four-year, $57.25 million contract extension that will keep him with the Super Bowl champions through 2025, a person familiar with the contract tells The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal has not been announced.
The move to secure the two-time All-Pro tight end is the latest in a string of big-money deals negotiated by general manager Brett Veach to keep the core of the Chiefs intact this offseason. Among them were a 10-year extension for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and a four-year deal for Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones.
