While many fans know Travis Kelce as one of the best tight ends in the game, other fans have heard his name through Taylor Swift dating rumors. Swift and Kelce are one the most high-profile couples in the NFL.

Despite his affiliation with Swift, Kelce has cemented his career as one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history.

At 34 years old, Kelce is in a league of his own at the position, which has helped him become one of the top-paid tight ends in the NFL.

Kelce signed a four-year $57.25 million contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs in August of 2020.

While his net worth might not rival that of his pop star girlfriend, Kelce has built a fortune worth an estimated $40 million.
