Travis Kelce wants to be NFL’s Michael Jordan as the Chiefs star drops huge hint he could play BEYOND his new two-year, $34m Chiefs deal

Travis Kelce has opened the door to playing for the Kansas City Chiefs after his two-year extension by saying he wants to eventually retire with six Super Bowl rings.

Kelce, 34, signed his new $34.25 million Chiefs contract in late April, a reward for another stellar season in Kansas City that ended with a second straight Super Bowl victory and the third of his career.

But midway through last season, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, as his fame grew from his relationship with Taylor Swift, Kelce admitted he often thinks about retiring because of the physical toll the game has on his body.

But fast forward to May, and Kelce now appears to want to go on and match the six NBA titles that Michael Jordan won in his basketball career.

‘Three more? Give me as many rings as Jordan has, baby,” Kelce said with a laugh in an interview with Zen Water. “That feeling in the end zone is the best feeling, hoisting that trophy at the end, that’s the Mecca there.

“Vince Lombardi (the Super Bowl trophy) at the end of the year with my teammates and my coaches and the fan base in Kansas City, that’s what I have my sights set on. Three more, here we come.

“Scoring a touchdown and hearing boos, silence or an eruption from the entire stadium is one of the greatest feelings you can ever have, man. I love it.

“When I look at the legacy, I want to be known as someone who was selfless and really wanted to make a difference in the communities in which he played.

‘I have been in a very nice organization that has given me the opportunity to grow as an athlete and off the field.

Kelce is a three-time Super Bowl winner with the Chiefs and will lead their bid for a historic NFL three-peat this season.

The Chiefs are off to a great start to the season, hosting the Baltimore Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium on September 5 in the first game of the season.

That will be followed by the Cincinnati Bengals visiting Arrowhead before their first road game in Week 3 at the Atlanta Falcons.

About retirement last year, Kelce said, “That’s the one thing I’ve never really been open about. The inconvenience. The pain. The persistent injuries, the ten operations I’ve had.

“To this day, I still feel every operation.”

Currently in the off-season, Kelce was in Europe last week to support girlfriend Swift during her Eras Tour dates in Paris before the couple enjoyed a break in Lake Como, Italy.
