The new deal pays Kelce an average salary of $17.125 million per year. That would make him the highest-paid tight end in the NFL, stealing that title from Darren Waller of the New York Giants, who is making $17 million.

Kelce, 34, is a nine-time Pro Bowler who has been by quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ side for all four of the Chiefs’ recent Super Bowl appearances, all of which have come in the last five years and have resulted in three trophies. He’s caught 907 passes for 11,328 yards and 74 touchdowns over his 11-year career, and from 2016 through 2022 Kelce put up at least 1,000 yards in each season. He was also a first-team All-Pro four times.
