Check out this quote from Kelce:
"Everybody last year thought I wasn't getting the reps I was supposed to at the beginning of the year but in reality I only had about a month before training camp where I was allowed to start running ... If I went out there playing more snaps than I did, I mean who knows. I might not have been able to make it. My knee still wasn't full strength last year which is why I'm excited about this year. Now I get the time to take a full offseason and get my legs ready and get my upper body and my explosiveness back that I know I really had. I didn't really feel that comfortable out there on the field but we made it work."

Two other things: Kelce has no idea where he got the nickname Zeus. "I'll take it all day," he said. He's also watching 2004-07 Tony Gonzalez tape this offseason. Oh my...
