Biography

  • 10th-year tight end enters his 10th season with the Chiefs in 2022.
  • For the fifth-straight season in 2020, Kelce eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards, extending his previously established NFL record for tight ends of four such seasons. Kelce becomes only the 26th pass catcher in NFL history – and is the first tight end – to record at least five-consecutive 1,000-receiving yard seasons.
  • With 1,416 receiving yards in 2020, set the NFL record for the most receiving yards by a tight end in NFL history, passing 49ers TE George Kittle's previous record of 1,377 yards set in 2018. He finished the 2020 season with 1,643 receiving yards in the regular and postseason, also the most by a tight end in NFL history.
  • Became the fastest tight end in NFL history to reach the 500-reception plateau, doing so in 95 career games played.
  • With 1,229 receiving yards in 2019, became the first tight end in NFL history to record consecutive seasons (2018-19) with 1,200+ receiving yards and the first tight end ever to log 1,000+ receiving yards in four consecutive seasons (2016-19). His four-career 1,000-receiving yard seasons are tied for the most by a tight end in NFL history.
  • Was voted by teammates as an offensive team captain prior to the club's 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 playoff games.

  • Originally entered the league as the first of two Kansas City third-round draft selections (63rd overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  • He crossed the 9,000 career yards mark against the Denver Broncos during the last game of the regular season (1/8/22). Kelce owns 9,005 career receiving yards, ranking second in franchise history for most receiving yards by any player and second-most receiving yards by a tight end. He becomes just the sixth tight end in NFL history to reach 9,000 career receiving yards and is the quickest tight end to reach that mark, accomplishing the feat in just 127 games to beat the old mark of 140 games set by Rob Gronkowski.
  • Kelce became the fastest tight end in NFL history to 8,000 yards (113 games) during the game against the Baltimore Ravens (9/19/21), beating the previous mark of 120 games by Gronkowski.

That extends his franchise record for most 1,000-yard seasons and extends his NFL record for most 1,000-yard seasons by a tight end. No tight end in NFL history has recorded more than three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (Greg Olsen, 2014-16).

Kelce and Hill are just the third pair of teammates to accomplish the feat in multiple seasons with the same team, joining Cris Carter and Randy Moss (Minnesota, 1998 and 1999) and Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker (Denver, 2012 and 2013).
  • With 109 receiving yards versus the New York Jets (11/1/20), Kelce became just the third tight end in NFL history with at least 7,000 receiving yards in his first eight seasons, joining Rob Gronkowski (7,179) and Antonio Gates (7,005).
