The Kansas City Chiefs restructured tight end Travis Kelce’s contract this week and it has sparked major speculation that the team is about to make a move. The restructure of Kelce’s contract freed up $3.455 million in cap space.
“It’s a start to a move, right? You’re freeing up cap space to be able to do something,” Kelce said in the latest episode of the “New Heights” podcast. “My agent just hit me up and said that they want to free up some cap space, so I was like, ‘I get the money now? Alright!’”
Those rumors include a possible signing of Odell Beckham Jr.
“I want them to come true. I have not heard anything in the locker room or anything around the facility,” Kelce said. “Something’s in the air for sure, and if it means OBJ? Alright!”
The Super Bowl LVI champion is only a free agent because he is still recovering from a torn ACL sustained during the Super Bowl matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals in February.
They would end their segment with: “I look forward to seeing OBJ in a Chiefs uniform.”
ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported a “realistic time frame” for the return of free-agent wide receiver from a knee injury is reportedly now mid-December.
The 29-year-old LSU product was terrific for the Rams during last season’s playoff run, tallying 21 catches for 288 yards and two touchdowns, including a score early in the Super Bowl before his injury.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
