The Chiefs are tying up their core for the next few years.
Kelce is entering the fourth year of a five-year contract set to make base salaries of $8 million in 2020 and $7.75 million in 2021. The new deal ties him to the Chiefs for the next six seasons.
The 49ers agreed to make George Kittle the highest-paid tight end in the NFL earlier Thursday, working out a five-year, $75 million extension. Kittle was entering the final year of his rookie deal, due a $2.133 million base salary.
This marks Kelce’s third contract with the Chiefs. He already has made more than $33.1 million.
In seven years, he has made five Pro Bowls and twice has earned All-Pro.
