After the San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle agreed to a five-year, $75 million extension with a $30 million guarantee at signing, a $40 million guarantee for injury, and a cool $18 million signing bonus, the most productive tight end over the last several years, Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, also got a big extension.

The Chiefs continue this offseason’s trend of making sure to sign their key pieces to new deals in order to make a run for another Super Bowl championship this year.

Kelce agreed to a four-year extension that will net him $57.25 million with an average annual wage of $14.3 million, which is just under the $15 million per year that Kittle is getting.

Kelce is a four-time All-Pro and has spent his entire seven-year NFL career with the Chiefs, who obviously wanted to make sure that their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ top pass target gets taken care of properly.
