Chiefs TE Travis Kelce plans on playing 'until the wheels fall off' as he enters 11th season

Turning 34 in October, Kelce remains the NFL’s top tight end. He’s coming off his seventh consecutive 1,000-plus-yard season and eighth straight Pro Bowl selection. Last year, his 1,338 yards receiving were 424 more than anyone else at the position.

The four-time All-Pro said he’s found a good balance between his off-field ventures and preparing for the season.

“I just love the game,” Kelce said. “I think that kind of keeps me living [like] a young, fun-loving football player, you know? I get to play a game for a living at the age of 33, 34, and I don’t want to lose that. I don’t want to lose that excitement that I had for the game when I was a kid, and every single day I get to come in with the best team, the best players, the best coaches in the world — so, it makes it easier if you just come in here and enjoy it.”

Kelce currently sits fourth all-time in receiving yards among tight ends, 4,783 yards behind Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez, who tops the list. Unless the wheels fall off soon, it’s a number within Kelce’s reach.
