Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs tight end, is receiving a well-deserved reward in this season’s contract.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs have amended Kelce’s contract with his consent in order to give him an increase for 2022.
Rapoport stated that “Money has been moved from the back to compensate Kelce properly.”
Kelce signed a five-year contract extension worth $57.25million that included $22.75 Million in guaranteed money in 2020. This extension begins in 2019 and will continue through the 2025 season.

The move does not appear to add any money to Kelce’s contract, but rewards him for his outstanding performance.
Kelce was selected for his seventh straight Pro Bowl. He also recorded his sixth consecutive 1,000-yard season in 2021.
He was second to Tyreek Hill on receiving yards (1,125) and receptions (92) and tied Hill for the team’s lead in touchdowns (9).
