2013 season

Kelce was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round (63rd pick overall) of the 2013 NFL draft. The Chiefs had hired Andy Reid as their new head coach during the off-season. Reid was familiar with Kelce, having drafted and coached his brother, Jason Kelce, in 2011 during his time as the head coach of the Eagles. On June 6, 2013, the Chiefs signed Kelce to a four-year, $3.12 million rookie contract that also included a signing bonus of $703,304.

Kelce injured his knee in the preseason. The injury was later diagnosed as a bone bruise. After being limited the first two weeks of the season due to the injury and being inactive the next three games, Kelce was placed on injured reserve on October 12, 2013, after having a microfracture surgery performed on his knee. He only played one snap, on special teams in the Chiefs' Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

2014 season

During Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins, Kelce recorded his first NFL touchdown on a 20-yard reception from quarterback Alex Smith. On November 30, he was fined $11,025 for "unsportsmanlike conduct" during a 29–16 loss to the Denver Broncos. Kelce made an inappropriate hand gesture and motion at Broncos linebacker Von Miller. Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid later called this "immature". In the next game against the Arizona Cardinals, Kelce had seven receptions for 110 yards for his first NFL game with over 100 receiving yards. In the regular-season finale against the San Diego Chargers, he had an offensive fumble recovery for a touchdown in the 19–7 victory. Kelce was the Chiefs' leading receiver during the 2014 season, totaling 862 yards off 67 receptions.

2015 season

Kelce began the 2015 season with his first NFL multiple touchdown game, with six receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns in the 27–20 victory over the Houston Texans. It was his only 100-plus-yard game, but he had at least one reception in all 16 games, and was ranked a top-five tight end by ESPN. He started all 16 regular season games and recorded 72 catches for 875 yards and five touchdowns, earning his way to his first Pro Bowl. The Chiefs finished the regular season with an 11–5 record and made the playoffs. In his first NFL playoff game, Kelce had eight receptions for 128 yards in a 30–0 Wild Card Round victory over the Texans. In the Divisional Round against the New England Patriots, Kelce had six receptions for 23 yards as the Chiefs lost 27–20. He was ranked 91st by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.

2016 season

On January 29, 2016, Kelce signed a five-year, $46 million contract extension. He was ranked 91st by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016.

During Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts, Kelce had seven receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. In the next game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he was ejected after receiving two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties after arguing with two officials over not having a pass interference penalty called. The second resulted from him sarcastically throwing his towel at field judge Mike Weatherford in a flagging motion due to being upset about the first penalty. He was later fined $24,309 for his outburst. During Week 13 against the Atlanta Falcons, he had eight receptions for 140 yards. In the next game, Kelce recorded 101 receiving yards against the Oakland Raiders, his fourth consecutive game topping 100. He joined Jimmy Graham and former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez as the only NFL tight ends ever to do so. In a Christmas Day win over the Broncos, Kelce had career bests of 11 receptions for 160 yards and a career-long 80-yard touchdown on a screen pass. He finished the season with career highs in yards (1,125) and receptions (85). His 1,125 receiving yards led the league among tight ends and his 85 receptions were second among tight ends behind Dennis Pitta of the Baltimore Ravens. Kelce's 634 yards after the catch also led all NFL tight ends. He was named as a starter in his second career Pro Bowl, held on December 20, 2016. He was also named First-team All-Pro. He was ranked 26th by his fellow players, and second among tight ends, on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2017.

The Chiefs finished atop the AFC West with a 12–4 record and earned a first-round bye in the playoffs. In the Divisional Round against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kelce had five receptions for 77 yards in the 18–16 loss.

2018 season

In the 2018 season, Kelce benefited from the rise of new quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was named NFL MVP at the end of the season. After being held to a lone reception for six yards in the season opener against the Chargers, he rebounded with seven receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 2 road victory over the Steelers. In two of the next three games, he was able to reach 100 receiving yards against the San Francisco 49ers and the Jaguars. He added 99 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 9 win over the Cleveland Browns, and went into the Week 12 bye with 10 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown in an offensively spectacular 54–51 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. In the Week 13 win over the Raiders, Kelce had career-bests of 12 receptions and 168 yards, including two short touchdowns in the first half. At this point, he was well on his way to an NFL record, but his production tapered off; over the final four weeks, Kelce averaged six receptions for 63.5 yards and had only one touchdown reception. In Week 17, Kelce indeed broke the NFL record for most receiving yards by a tight end in a single season, but 49ers tight end George Kittle passed him to claim the record less than an hour later. Kelce ended the regular season at 10th in the NFL in receptions with 103 and receiving yards with 1,336, and sixth in receiving touchdowns with 10. He was named to the 2018 Pro Bowl and was named first-team All-Pro.

Despite injuries to Patrick Mahomes and just two touchdowns, at the midpoint of the season Kelce led all tight ends and Chiefs players in receiving yards with 604. During Week 11 against the Chargers on Monday Night Football in Mexico, Kelce caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in the 24–17 win. During Week 14 against the Patriots, Kelce caught seven passes for 66 yards and rushed the ball once for a one-yard touchdown during the 23–16 road victory. In the next game against the Broncos, Kelce finished with 11 catches for 142 receiving yards as the Chiefs won 23–3. In the next game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football, he caught eight passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in the 26–3 win.

In the Divisional Round against the Texans, the Chiefs began the game with a 24–0 deficit. The Chiefs then went on a 51–7 run, including 41 unanswered points, to win 51–31. After a drop on third down on the Chiefs first drive that would have been a first down if it had been caught, Kelce caught 10 passes for 134 yards and three touchdowns (all in the second quarter) as he helped lead the Chiefs to their second consecutive conference championship game. In the AFC Championship Game against the Titans, Kelce caught three passes for 30 yards during the 35–24 win.

Following the release of long-time Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt in the offseason, Kelce became tied with Anthony Sherman and fellow 2013 draftee Eric Fisher as the team's longest tenured members. On August 14, 2020, Kelce signed a four-year, $57 million contract extension with the Chiefs through the 2025 season. In Week 6, he caught two touchdowns in a 26–17 victory over the Buffalo Bills. In Week 8 against the Jets, Kelce dunked the ball through the goal posts after scoring a touchdown, paying homage to former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct and was fined $12,500. In Week 9, against the Carolina Panthers, he had ten receptions for 159 receiving yards in the 33–31 victory.

He was ranked fifth by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2021.

2021 season

After Fisher was released and Sherman retired in the offseason, Kelce became the longest-tenured member of the Chiefs. In the Chiefs' second game of the season, against the Ravens, he became the fastest tight end in NFL history to record 8,000 career yards, surpassing Rob Gronkowski's record in 113 games. In the Chiefs' week-15 game against the Chargers, Kelce set a career high for receiving yards in a game with 191 yards. He also caught two touchdowns, including the game-winning 34-yard touchdown in overtime. Kelce was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance. The game also put him over 1,000 yards for the season, his NFL record (among tight ends) extending sixth consecutive 1,000-yard season. It also extended Kelce's record for most 1,000-yard seasons by a tight end with six. He was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on December 20, 2021. Kelce was activated on December 25, 2021. However, due to NFL protocols for COVID-19, since he tested positive for the virus and did not test negative before the day of the game, he was ruled out for the Chiefs' week 16 game against the Steelers. It was the first game Kelce had missed due to injury or illness since his rookie season. In the regular season-ending game against the Broncos, Kelce became the fastest tight end in NFL history to reach 9,000 career yards in just 127 games, a record also previously held by Gronkowski with 140 games. He finished the season with 92 receptions for 1,125 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. He was named Second-Team All-Pro by the AP, his sixth overall All-Pro selection. He was also named to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl.

In the Wild Card Round against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kelce had five receptions for 108 yards and a receiving touchdown to go along with a two-yard touchdown pass to Byron Pringle in the 42–21 victory. In the Divisional Round against the Bills, he had eight receptions for 96 yards and the game-winning touchdown in the 42–36 overtime victory. Kelce was wearing an NFL Films microphone for the game, and audio footage from the two offensive plays of the 13-second drive revealed that Kelce instructed Tyreek Hill to run the route which led to the success of the first completion, and revealed him suggesting to Mahomes that he might improvise his own route on the second offensive play if the Bills' defensive scheme didn't change. Prior to the snap, Mahomes realized Kelce's suggested improvised route would work and shouted "Do it, Kelce!", before finding his tight-end for a completion of 25 yards.

In the AFC Championship against the Cincinnati Bengals, he had 10 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in the 27–24 overtime loss. He was ranked tenth by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2022.

He also officially recorded his seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season, extending his records (among tight ends) of consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and most overall 1,000 seasons. He finished the 2022 season with 110 receptions for 1,338 receiving yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. Kelce set a single-game NFL postseason record for a tight end with 14 receptions in a 27–20 victory over the Jaguars in the Divisional Round. He scored two receiving touchdowns in the game. Kelce and the Chiefs appeared in Super Bowl LVII against the Eagles. Kelce's brother Jason played for the Eagles, making it the first Super Bowl to feature two brothers as players on opposing teams. Kelce caught six passes for 81 yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs beat the Eagles 38–35 to win his second Super Bowl. He was ranked fifth by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2023.

2023 season: Third Super Bowl win

Kelce was inactive for the Chiefs' game against the Detroit Lions due to a knee injury he suffered earlier in the week. It was his first game missed due to an injury since his rookie season. Kelce made his season debut the following week against the Jaguars. In the Chiefs' week 7 game against the Chargers, Kelce tied a career high with 12 receptions. He also had 179 receiving yards, the second highest of his career. In the Chiefs' Week 9 game against the Dolphins, he broke the Chiefs franchise record for career receiving yards. Kelce finished the regular season with 984 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He elected to not play in the Chiefs' Week 18 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, ending his NFL-record streak of seven consecutive seasons to finish with 1,000 receiving yards.

In the Divisional Round victory over the Bills, Kelce had two receiving touchdowns. Kelce, along with Mahomes, broke the record for most career touchdowns in the playoffs for a quarterback/receiver duo. In the AFC Championship Game victory against the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens, Kelce caught 11 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown, surpassing Jerry Rice for most playoff receptions and tying Rice for first in 100+ receiving yard games. The victory marked Kelce's fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons. During Super Bowl LVIII, the Chiefs would win the game 25–22 in just the second Super Bowl in history to go to overtime, earning Kelce his third Super Bowl win. The Chiefs became the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since the New England Patriots accomplished the feat in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

During the game, following a turnover by the Chiefs when Kelce was not on the field, he was shown screaming at Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid demanding to remain on the field. During the incident, Kelce bumped Reid knocking Reid off balance, which drew criticism from several NFL analysts. Kelce said he regretted the actions and that they were unacceptable.

Philanthropy and activism

For his charity work, Kelce was the recipient of the Chiefs' team Ed Block Courage Award in 2014. He was also the Chiefs' nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2020. The same year, Kelce won the fan voted NFL's annual Charity Challenge Award and received a $25,000 contribution to his foundation.

In 2018, Kelce announced the development of a Robotics Lab in partnership with Operation Breakthrough, another Kansas City-based nonprofit. The Lab is accessible to nearly 300 students from elementary to high school levels in the area. 2 years later, Kelce made a $500,000 donation for the purchase and transformation of a building in Kansas City into a coworking space for disadvantaged children to have the opportunity to explore careers in STEM. The workforce development program set up in the building was named "Ignition Lab". Kelce organizes an annual fundraising event in Kansas City, including an auto show and a fashion show, to raise money for various causes in both Kansas City and Cleveland. In 2024, Kelce donated 25,000 breakfast meals to students from Kansas City. Kelce also launched an initiate called "Catching for a Cause" where he pledges to donate money annually for every catch and touchdown that he makes throughout the NFL season. Following the 2024 Kansas City parade shooting, Kelce donated $100,000 to the family of two children who were seriously wounded by gunshots.

Aside from his own foundation, Kelce has also regularly helped the Make-A-Wish Foundation and frequently donated autographed items to help raise funds through silent auctions. Kelce is also an active supporter of various non-profit organizations and initiatives, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Read Across America Day. Noted for being generous with his time and resources, Kelce has also made several appearances at Kansas City hospitals and schools to support local charities. He donated $140,000 to Operation Breakthrough and the Heights Schools Foundation in Ohio to help both during COVID-19 pandemic. Kelce and his brother Jason have also donated to the Heights Schools Foundation for equipment funding and after school activities and have organized an annual fundraiser in benefit of the Eagles Autism Foundation. In 2019, Kelce participated in a charity celebrity softball game to raise funds for the Lake Health Foundation. In 2022, Kelce announced the launch of a Health and Wellness fund in benefit of the student-athletes of the University of Cincinnati. The grant funds Cincinnati's Sports Psychology and Counseling Department, directly impacting and aiding all 450 student-athletes in Kelce's alma mater.

In 2017, Kelce became one of the highest-profile white NFL players to kneel during the National Anthem in protest against police brutality, racism and social inequalities in America. Following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police officer Rusten Sheskey, Kelce, along with teammate Patrick Mahomes, spoke publicly in support of social justice. Kelce has also continuously extended his support to the Black Lives Matter movement. Kelce, along with several other NFL players, joined students in virtual class discussions around the US to discuss a documentary titled Black Boys. The film, which was produced by Malcolm Jenkins, focuses on social and emotional effects of racism against Black men. Kelce along with other teammates wore custom helmet decals that identify an individual or phrase important to them in a gesture against social injustice by the Kansas City Chiefs. His helmet had the name of Tamir Rice written on it and the paragraph "The challenge of social justice is to evoke a sense of community that we need to make our nation a better place, just as we make it a safer place."

Entertainment

In January 2016, Kelce starred in the E! Entertainment Television dating show Catching Kelce. The winner picked by Kelce was Maya Benberry. In 2020, Kelce appeared as a fictionalized version of himself in the first episode of the comedy series Moonbase 8. Kelce was also predominantly featured on his brother Jason’s feature-length documentary, examining the latter’s football career and private life. Titled Kelce, the documentary was released on Amazon Prime on September 11, 2023. Within 24 hours of its release, Kelce became the No. 1 most watched movie on Prime Video in the United States. In May 2023, he signed with Creative Artists Agency for off-the-field representation while maintaining his prior agent for his NFL representation. Kelce was the host of Saturday Night Live on March 4, 2023. His brother Jason also made an appearance on that episode with their parents as audience members, and was also in a sketch with Kelce and SNL cast members Heidi Gardner and Chloe Fineman. He made a cameo appearance on the October 14, 2023, episode. Kelce is also executive producer of the war comedy-drama film My Dead Friend Zoe and the documentary King Pleasure, about the life of American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Through his Super Bowl runs with the Chiefs, Kelce became known for reciting the chorus from the Beastie Boys' 1986 song "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" during team celebrations, first after the 2019 AFC Championship Game then again at the parade in Kansas City after clinching Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs responded by making "Fight for Your Right" its touchdown song during games at Arrowhead Stadium. Kelce would continue the practice with the Chiefs' second championship in four years, adding a live performance of the song with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Kelce was featured, with his brother Jason, on the cover of "Fairytale of New York" (1987) by the Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl, titled "Fairytale of Philadelphia", which appeared on the 2023 album A Philly Special Christmas Special; proceeds from the album benefit various charity institutions in Philadelphia. "Fairytale of Philadelphia" topped the US iTunes chart, following which the brothers thanked the Swifties. The song further debuted at number five on the Billboard Digital Song Sales chart and number two on Billboard Rock Digital Song Sales with 6,000 downloads sold in the first week. The song climbed to number one on both charts on its second week of release, making the brothers Billboard-charting artists. In April 2023, Kelce announced the launch of his own annual music festival called Kelce Jam. The first edition of the event, held in Bonner Springs, Kansas during the 2023 NFL draft weekend, featured artists including Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Loud Luxury and Tech N9ne. The festival sold its first 10,000 tickets in 20 minutes, and was eventually sold out with 18,000 people in attendance.

New Heights with Jason & Travis Kelce podcast

In September 2022, Kelce and his brother Jason, announced the launch of a weekly sports podcast called New Heights with Jason & Travis Kelce in partnership with Wave Sports + Entertainment. The name is a nod to the brothers’ upbringing in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. The podcast is filmed remotely through the Football season in both video and audio forms and is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other major podcast platforms. It is also broadcast live on YouTube. In the podcast, the brothers discuss the NFL news, rumors, and sports headlines as well as each other's games. New Heights also features special guests including NFL players, celebrities, and members of their family.

Within weeks of its launch, the podcast reached the number one spot on the list of the most popular sports podcasts on Spotify and number three on Apple podcast sports charts. In February 2023, the podcast experienced a rise in popularity due to the brothers facing off in Super Bowl LVII. The game, which was referred to as the "Kelce Bowl", marked the first Super Bowl to feature two brothers playing against each other. It reached number one in sports podcast on both Spotify and Apple as well as number three on Spotify in all podcast categories and number two in all podcasts on Apple. The podcast is regularly highlighted on Monday Night Football on ESPN and Sunday Night Football on NBC. In 2022, it was named the Sports Podcast of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Following the premiere of the second season in September 2023, New Heights became the number one sports podcast in the U.S. and the number one sports podcast globally on Spotify as well as number one among all podcasts on Apple.

Endorsements

Kelce has appeared in print, television and online advertisements for brands such as Dick's Sporting Goods, LG, McDonald’s, Nike, Inc., Papa John’s, Bud Light, Old Spice, Walgreens, Pfizer, State Farm, DirectTV, Experian, Lowe's, and Campbell's Soup among others. In August 2022, Hy-Vee began manufacturing "Kelce's Krunch", a limited-edition frosted cornflakes breakfast cereal named after and endorsed by Kelce. A portion of proceeds from the sale of the cereal was donated to Kelce's charity foundation. In 2023, Business Insider estimated that Kelce makes $5 million a year in off-the-field earnings and stated that "he was one of football's most successful endorsers."

In 2019, Kelce founded his own health brand, Hilo Nutrition, which sells gummy supplements for performance nutrition and other health benefits. In January 2020, Kelce launched his own clothing brand, Tru Kolors. It became the first brand by an NFL player to launch an official merchandise collaboration with an NFL franchise: the Kansas City Chiefs in 2022. In 2021, Kelce released a signature sneaker collection as part of a deal with Nike. The collection was called Nike x Kelce Blazer Mid '77 Vintage and included six shoes that inspired by facets of Kelce's life, including his brand and his team's colors. Kelce is co-owner of a car wash chain named Club Car Wash that operates in 109 locations in eight states in the central U.S. In October 2023, Kelce and Walmart launched Travis Kelce's Kitchen, a line of seven barbecue products inspired by the flavors of Kansas City.

Investments

In 2019, Kelce invested in the private equity firm L Catterton's purchase of the condiment brand Cholula Hot Sauce. He earned four times his investment when McCormick & Company acquired the brand for $800 million in 2020. Kelce is also an angel investor in several companies, including the tequila brand Casa Azul, the whole-grain pancake and waffle mixes Kodiak Cakes, and the made-to-measure menswear retailer Indochino. In 2023, Kelce joined a group of investors, including actor Ryan Reynolds and teammate Mahomes, to buy a stake in the Alpine, a UK-based French Formula One team. The exact amount or stake was not disclosed.

Personal life

Kelce and Maya Benberry, the winner of his dating show, started dating after the show ended in April 2016. In January 2017, Benberry confirmed that they had broken up. From 2017 to 2022, Kelce was in a relationship with social media influencer Kayla Nicole Brown.

Kelce began dating singer-songwriter Taylor Swift in 2023. There is evidence that the highly publicized relationship and Swift's attendance at games has increased NFL viewership. Some NFL games that Swift attended broke viewership, ticket sales, and merchandise sales records: a Chiefs–Chicago Bears game drew the most television viewers of the weekend, a Chiefs–New York Jets game averaged 27 million viewers, making it the most-watched Sunday-night television show since Super Bowl LVII, and a Chiefs–Buffalo Bills game on January 21, 2024, became the most-watched NFL divisional playoff game ever and the most-watched program on any network since Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs–Baltimore Ravens semi-final game of the season was the most watched AFC Championship game of all time. Kelce and Swift have been widely referred to as a supercouple; some call them "America's very own royal couple". With the Chiefs advancing to Super Bowl LVIII, the game has been referred to as the Taylor Swift Bowl. One widely cited estimate by a sports marketing company said the Kelce-Swift relationship had so stimulated ticket sales, viewership, and merchandising that the Chiefs franchise had gained $331.4 million in value in six months.

Kelce plays golf during the offseason. He has participated in several celebrity tournaments, including the American Century Championship, at which he won the long drive contest in the 2023 edition. In 2023, he participated in The Match VIII, teaming up with his Chiefs teammate Patrick Mahomes against Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He and Mahomes won.

In 2023, Kelce moved to a mansion in Leawood, Kansas. He owns two houses in the Kansas City area and a condo in Orlando, Florida. Kelce is an avid car collector.
