Travis Kelce is a no-doubt Hall of Famer who will go down as one of the best tight ends of all time. At age 34, Kelce ranks second in playoff receiving yards (1,810), first in playoff receptions (156) and second in playoff receiving touchdowns (19).
That dominance has continued this postseason, as the tight end has had at least 5 catches and 70 yards in all 3 of the Chiefs’ postseason games. Kelce will now get the chance to win his third Super Bowl when the Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.
However, Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports thinks this will be the last season of Kelce’s career. Dajani published five predictions for the Super Bowl, and the writer included a prediction that Kelce will retire after the Chiefs win.
Travis Kelce could retire?
“After his third Super Bowl win in which he scores a touchdown, with Taylor Swift by his side as confetti falls from the sky, Kelce makes an eyebrow-raising comment concerning his future, saying he’s going to take some time to ponder what’s next,” Dajani predicted. “That ramps up retirement speculation, and Kelce ultimately does step away this offseason, just like his brother. ”
Dajani also pointed to the accomplished career of Kelce and his brother’s retirement as reasons for this shocking prediction.
Travis Kelce has had a legendary career
In every season after his rookie year, Kelce has finished with at least 65 catches and 850 yards. Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, and Antonio Gates are the only tight ends who have more catches and receiving yards.
Would Kelce hang up the cleats if the Chiefs win another Super Bowl? Time will tell. One thing is for sure- Kelce has nothing left to prove in the NFL.
