Tony Gonzalez, Kellen Winslow, and Rob Gronkowski are three of the best tight ends to ever play in the National Football League but Travis Kelce is starting to enter the conversation. It’ll be tough for the Kansas City standout to catch Gonzalez stat wise because Tony G played for 17 seasons. Plus players are more aware of the physical consequences of the sport in today’s era and that why’s people’s careers are getting shorter.
That doesn’t take away from the fact that Kelce had the most productive season in NFL history by a tight end in 2018. Kelce racked up 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns proving there’s no one else in the league like him. This is a 6’5” 260 pound guy who runs a 4.61 40 yard dash. He’s dangerous with the ball in his hands and Kelce can juke defenders out of their shoes. Then in the passing game he’s very good at working the seams and post routes vertically down the field. What that does is open up the Chiefs offense and it makes Patrick Mahomes’ job so much easier. Another part of Kelce’s game that has to be mentioned is how good his hands are. We’ve seen him make one handed grabs to move the chains and it’s spectacular to see that from someone who is so big. You also have to keep in mind that Kelce can block too so it’s clear he’s the total package. Can you imagine how much of a step back the Chiefs would take if they didn’t have the former 3rd round pick on their roster? There’s no way Mahomes would’ve put up 50 touchdowns without Kelce and he’ll be even more valuable if Tyreek Hill gets suspended. So things will certainly be interesting in Kansas City this year but you can almost guarantee that Travis Kelce is going to bring it.
