Chiefs' Andy Reid will talk to Travis Kelce about that hand gesture

The Chiefs coach will talk to his TE about a certain hand gesture that came up in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

After Von Miller delivered a blow to the Alex Smith's blindside and the refs penalized Miller for a late hit, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce was caught on the TV cameras doing a, ahem, wanking motionKelce took to Twitter that night to show his displeasure with Miller on the play (but later deleted the tweet).

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on Monday that he will be talking with Kelce about the hand gesture.

"I just found out about that," Reid said of the wanking motion, which is what I'm calling it unless you have any better ideas. "It sounds like it was a bit of an immature act. I normally don't let those things go by so I'll address that. I have to see it first but it sounds like it was an immature act, for sure."

You could call it immature. Or you could say Kelce was just defending his quarterback who was hit late in the back very hard on the play. Reid acknowledged that this is an emotional game and things happen but that "if you're doing something that is going to cost you ... then that's not the right thing to do."

Maybe it was a little immature. But the NFL could use some (fun) immaturity like this. Here's to hoping Kelce keeps having fun because I, for one, enjoy it.
