Travis Kelce plans to follow Tom Brady into NFL broadcasting when he retires after legendary quarterback struck $375MILLION Fox deal

Travis Kelce has opened up on his plans to venture into broadcasting when his NFL career eventually comes to an end.

Kelce, who has won three Super Bowl rings in his legendary 11-year stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, recently cooled any talk of retirement despite approaching his 35th birthday, admitting he ‘can’t put a timeframe’ on when the day will come.

While he isn’t ready to hang up his cleats just yet, the Chiefs tight end already appears to have his post-football plan mapped out.

On the latest episode of his and brother Jason’s New Heights podcast Travis revealed he wants to follow in the footsteps of both his elder sibling and Tom Brady by becoming a TV analyst.

The Kelce brothers were discussing the idea of purchasing a stake in an NFL team when Travis touched on his desire to go into broadcasting.

Amid the news that his beloved Philadelphia Eagles could be up for sale, Jason asked his brother: ‘Trav, shall we try and buy some of it?’

‘I would rather try and buy the Chiefs or be a minority stake owner in the Chiefs,’ Travis replied.

‘I don’t know that it matters how much a minority stake is, I don’t think we can afford it!’ Jason laughed.

The Kansas City star then added: ‘And also you can’t call the game or do anything like that, because of the whole Tom Brady thing. He wanted to have a minority stake in the [Las Vegas] Raiders and it messed with his TV deal.’

Brady is still in talks to purchase a minority stake in the Raiders despite putting pen to paper on a 10-year, $375million broadcasting deal with Fox Sports, with the iconic quarterback set to call NFL games on the network from next season onwards.

Jason, meanwhile, is set to join ESPN’s Monday Night Football lineup after calling time on his 13-year career in Philadelphia. However, he insists he would rip up his multi-year agreement in no time to become an owner of the Eagles.

When his younger brother stressed that he would never buy a stake in a team, he explained why. ‘Because I want to broadcast when I’m done playing,’ Travis revealed before adding, ‘I want to be the talking head that calls the games.’

Kelce has cemented a legacy as arguably the greatest tight end in football history during his time with the Chiefs and continues to play an integral role in the team.

Last season he helped Kansas City claim a second straight Super Bowl, meaning next season they have the chance to pull off an unprecedented ‘three-peat’.

And as history beckons, Travis is prepared to keep playing football ‘until the wheels fall off’.

‘Hopefully, that doesn’t happen anytime soon,’ he said on Tuesday. ‘I really can’t put a timeframe on (retirement). I love coming to work every single day.

‘Obviously, I know there’s opportunities outside of football for me. You have to keep in perspective that I’m still a little kid when I come into this building, man.

‘I know I’m 34 years old, but I have a love to do this right here, in the middle of the heat in June. I love coming to work every single day.’

Jason began the latest episode of New Heights by telling Travis he had been told to speak about ‘maybe us trying to buy the Eagles’ amid reports claiming owner Jeff Lurie is considering selling a minority stake.

‘It’s a steep price, I don’t even know… it’s just in the rundown [for the episode],’ Jason told Travis.

The former Philadelphia star then revealed an interim staff member on the show was desperate for them to express an interest in buying the team, only to shut down any possibility of it happening.

‘Interim Brandon wants us to say that we’re gonna buy the Eagles, but we can’t afford the Eagles,’ he admitted.

Travis then added: ‘Nor do I think they’d sell the team to both of us. Why would they sell the team [to us]?’

Lurie bought the Eagles 30 years ago in a deal worth $185million, with the team now said to be valued at a staggering $7.5billion, according to Bloomberg.
