A reality TV show AND a contract extension in the same week? It's good to be Travis Kelce. The Kansas City Chiefs announced that Kelce has signed a contract extension, which puts him under contract through 2021.

NFL Network is reporting it's worth $46 million over five years with $20.5 million guaranteed. That's slightly more than the Eagles gave Zach Ertz last week. Kelce had one more year left on his contract.
"Today we reached an agreement with Travis and his representatives on a contract extension," Chiefs GM John Dorsey said in a statement. "He's a talented football player that has become an important piece to what we do offensively. Travis is a high-character guy and a leader in our locker room."
Kelce came into the league as a third round in 2013, Andy Reid and John Dorsey's first year in Kansas City. He did not play but a few snaps his rookie year due to microfracture surgery. However, Kelce returned in 2014 to post a big year and replicated his numbers in 2015.
Kelce got a dating show this week, is currently in Hawaii and signed a $46M deal. Meanwhile, I got a pretty good deal on some shoes.— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) January 29, 2016
