2. Fun-loving Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce ready for more responsibility

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"But while the offseason has provided Kelce with a chance to rest up, let loose and live a little, football is never far from his mind.

He says he has continued to work out at the Chiefs' training-facility-which is not mandatory until late April-to improve as a player and rid himself of the sour taste left by the Chiefs' inability to earn a playoff berth.
