Perhaps you’ve seen the Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift dating news, and now, you’re curious about the star NFL player. We’ll get into specifics, but the 33-year-old is rich. Not Taylor Swift-level rich, but he’s made a lot of money nonetheless.

Let’s get into the details of Kelce’s tenure with the Kansas City Chiefs and his net worth.

His primary job pays well

Kelce joined the NFL in 2013 and has played tight end for the Chiefs his whole career. In 2013, Travis reportedly signed a four-year, $3.12 million dollar deal with the team. Then in 2016, he reportedly signed a five-year, $45-million extension which included $22 million guaranteed and an annual salary of about $14 million.

Despite his hefty paycheck, Travis told Vanity Fair in June 2023 he’s actually underpaid compared to other players. “My managers and agents love to tell me how underpaid I am,” he said.

“You see how much more money you could be making and, yeah, it hits you in the gut a little bit. It makes you think you’re being taken advantage of. I don’t know if I really pressed the gas if I would get what I’m quote-unquote worth... But I enjoy coming to that building every single day.”

Kelce has an argument based on how productive he’s been. Considered one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history, he’s won two Super Bowls and has 825 career receptions for more than 10,000 yards and 71 career touchdowns.

Nike has a shoe named after him

You know you’ve made it as an athlete when Nike names shoes after you. The brand designed the Nike Alpha Menace Elite 3 “Travis Kelce” football cleats.

He's done a lot of commericals

In 2019, Kelce starred in a McDonald’s commercial showing off his dance moves. It’s never been revealed publicly how much the fast food giant paid him, but he probably received a nice check.

However, his television appearances don’t end there. In addition to hosting Saturday Night Live in March, Travis has worked with a variety of recognizable brands including State Farm—starring in an commercial with teammate Patrick Mahomes—as well as Campbell’s Soup, DIRECTV, Bud Light, and drug company Pfizer just within the last year.

So what is Travis Kelce’s net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Travis’ value stands at an impressive $30 million and is only likely to grow. In a recent profile by Vanity Fair, he revealed he has interest in becoming an NFL TV analyst once his playing days are over—a position that, given his personality and comfort in front of cameras, would command a pretty big paycheck (just look at Tom Brady and his reported $375 million deal with Fox).
