Travis Kelce opens on how he feels about his contract, where money ranks for him

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has said that he is perfectly fine with his current contract as he noted that his top priority is creating a legacy and winning more Super Bowls. Kelce, a three-time First-Team All-Pro wide receiver, has been putting up great numbers since 2016 as he has had the most receiving yards since the 2016 season.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams is second, free agent Julio Jones is third and Arizona Cardinals wideout DeAndre Hopkins is fourth. Kelce earns annually $14.3 million, while Adams makes $28 million and Hopkins just over $27 million.

"I signed my contract understanding what I had," Kelce said, via Pro Football Talk. "I put a lot into this, money in my mind is almost secondary at this point in my career. I'm here for the legacy and I'm here to try and make the Kansas City Chiefs the best team possible."

Kelce excited about the new offense

The Chiefs suffered a big loss this offseason as All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill left the team to join the Miami Dolphins.

With Hill gone, Kelce is now the clear top option in the new-look Chiefs offense. "That's the excitement in my mind," Kelce said. "I think it has to be a new offense with what the offensive staff does and Spags (Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo) on the defensive side.

They look at the personnel that they have and don't get caught up in their specific scheme but build the scheme around the pieces that they've got. That's going to be the excitement this year is teams are going to have to see how we're going to come out and attack them.

With a guy like 15 (Patrick Mahomes) out there, who knows where to go for the ball. I think it can be an advantage for sure." For many years, Kelce, Hill and Patrick Mahomes were torching NFL defenses on Sunday. Even without Hill, the Chiefs still have a very talented offense.
