The Kansas City Chiefs might have to start looking for another star offensive player.
Travis Kelce has been one of the NFL’s most impactful skill-position players as of late, a safety net for Patrick Mahomes in this offense.
However, Kelce recently sat down with J.R. Moehringer of the Wall Street Journal to discuss his plans, indicating that he is pondering retirement.
In this interview, Kelce said he thinks about retirement “more than anyone could imagine.”

His body is deteriorating after years of hard contact on the football field, a major cause for his retirement thoughts.
If he wants to spend more time with his family, particularly his new girlfriend, Taylor Swift, retirement might be on the table after this season.
Every year in the NFL presents another opportunity to get injured, another chance to worsen your body for the future.
Kelce has already suffered several injuries throughout his career, including a few this season that have caused him to miss games.
While it might be a difficult pill for Chiefs fans to swallow, especially given how important Kelce is to this offense, this decision seems to be weighing heavily on Kelce.
He has a lot of time to make this decision, similar to what his brother encountered heading into the 2023 campaign.
Jason Kelce ended up coming back to the NFL this year, and will likely call it quits after this season.
His retirement could have a big impact on Travis’ decision.
Regardless of the timeline of this decision, even more eyes will be on Kelce than they were before, watching him to see what his next move will be.
