Here's Why Travis Kelce Has Newfound Excitement for Chiefs Offense
The Kansas City Chiefs knew they had an offensive line problem after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers demolished them in the 2020 Super Bowl. It was more glaring than ever before as Patrick Mahomes was sacked 3 times, hurried 11, took 7 hits and was pressured on nearly 40 percent of his dropbacks.
Kansas City prioritized revamping the o-line this offseason and the team heads into camp with six new faces competing for jobs. For Travis Kelce, the Chiefs 6-time Pro Bowl tight end, it's left him with a newfound excitement for the entire Chiefs offense.
Kelce explained that "walking into the huddle is a little bit different this year," and "we’ve got big, big dudes, man" when discussing this new offensive line.
The line features loads of talent. Kansas City revamped the line with tackle Orlando Brown, guards Joe Thuney and Kyle Long, and center Austin Blythe. It's an experienced bunch that boasts a combined 247 starts and 20 years of experience alongside 5 Pro-Bowl selections and 2 Super Bowl Championships.
The new-look offensive line, along with all of the weapons already in Kansas City, has the Chiefs entering as betting favorites to win next year's title. Currently, Kansas City owns +500 odds to win the Super Bowl, according to the latest NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
