The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly nearing a long-term extension with four-time All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce.

The extension is expected to be for at least five years. The report of a new deal comes just hours after San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle reportedly signed a five-year, $75 million extension.

Kelce is an integral part of a Chiefs offense that is led by superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

The reigning Super Bowl champions have already locked up Mahomes to a massive extension and are now looking to keep his favorite weapons around him as well.

The 30-year-old Kelce caught 97 passes last season for 1,229 yards and five touchdowns.

He has been selected to five Pro Bowls in his seven-year career. For his career, Kelce has caught 507 passes for 6,465 yards and 37 touchdowns.
