After Jason Kelce’s Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the latest installment of Thursday Night Football, Jason was punted a question that had nothing to do with football. During the postgame conference, Tony Gonzalez asked Jason whether there was any truth to the rumors about Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift (via TMZ). Initially, Jason went with the standard “no comment,” before elaborating further. “Ever since ‘Catching Kelce,’ everybody’s been infatuated with Travis’ love life,” he added. “So, I don’t really know what’s going on there. So, yeah, I know Trav is having fun. We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”
It’s not a confirmation by any means, but Jason was reportedly “smiling” at the question, so make of that what you will. And though we don’t have the receipts yet, The Messenger has all but confirmed that Swift and Travis are dating, reporting, “She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago.”
Unlike the Internet’s general outcry when Swift and Matty Healy were a thing, the NFL community seems to be team Travis-and-Swift. “The lady that sells out every stadium in the world ten times … and [New England Patriots coach] Bill Belichick says, ‘She’s pretty tough, man.’ Said you know what? The man of my dreams … is an NFL guy,” podcaster Pat McAfee said on his show. In the meantime, we’re waiting for Swift to give us verbal confirmation about Travis, preferably through song.
