Chiefs GM John Dorsey Talks Travis Kelce

Dorsey recently spoke on his young, playmaking tight end

The Kansas City Chiefs' leading receiver in 2014 was second-year tight end Travis Kelce, who finished with 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns.

After missing the 2013 season (minus one special teams snap) with a knee injury, Kelce had a bounce-back season last year.

He showed everyone from the beginning of training camp all the way through the last game of the season that he's a dynamic playmaker when the ball is in his hands.

Kelce is spending most of his time this offseason working out at the team's training facility, and the expectations for him are only going to continue to rise.

"He's at that stage now where he understands doing the little things will help him be a high-level professional," Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said. "He's taking his craft very seriously, he's out here diligently working and that's all you can ask for."

The Chiefs passing game will have some new faces next year as veteran receivers Donnie Avery, Dwayne Bowe and AJ Jenkins are no longer with the team.

The team has already signed former Philadelphia Eagle Jeremy Maclin, not to mention adding four other receivers via reserve and future deals earlier this offseason. So there will be some new faces added to the mix for quarterback Alex Smith, but Dorsey expects progress from his young tight end.

"I would expect big things of him next year," Dorsey said of Kelce. "I want him to set those goals high because he's the type of guy that can obtain those goals when you set them high."
