Three-time Super Bowl champion tight end Travis Kelce, better known to many as singer Taylor Swift’s sweetheart, said on Monday he has signed a two-year contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL.

The 34-year-old American signed a deal to stay with the Chiefs through 2027 for $34.25 million and become the NFL’s highest-paid tight end, according to multiple reports.

“Back at it again baby,” Kelce said in a video posted by the Chiefs on X, formerly Twitter.
