Tom Brady might not be done with football. Despite Brady’s illustrious career spanning over 23 years having reached its conclusion, the NFL legend might still be equally involved with football. Right after his first retirement, Fox Sports roped Brady into the role of their lead analyst in 2022. Having signed a 10-year, $375 Million contract, TB12 was expected to find his comfort in front of the microphone. But uncertainties continue looming around the cause. While the greatest quarterback’s immediate future appears in doubt, the greatest tight end might be willing to take up a similar role.

In the past few months, Travis Kelce’s popularity has skyrocketed. In addition to securing himself a second Super Bowl ring, Kelce also went on to emerge as a favorite in front of the camera. Kelce’s SNL debut made many take notice of his charismatic persona, and then there’s his love of enjoying life as a DJ. But Travis Kelce might have some other unfulfilled ambitions. And while Tom Brady might be shying away from the camera, that doesn’t appear to be the case with Travis Kelce.

Travis Kelce’s showbiz ambitions

As it turns out, Travis Kelce had always been attracted to bright lights. Whether it’s the mind-numbing chaos in the gridiron or the loud applause after a stellar performance, no moment ever felt too big for the Kansas City Chiefs tight end. Even SNL had been on Kelce’s radar for a while, but a gut-wrenching loss at the hands of Tom Brady during Super Bowl LV put his plans on hold.

Additionally, Kelce realized that most of the NFL greats, who have had the opportunity were in marquee positions. Speaking on his realization, Kelce shared with Vanity Fair, “There’s only been like maybe three or four guys that weren’t quarterbacks that ever got to actually host.” Nevertheless, Kelce conquered that front, securing himself another Super Bowl title and making his SNL debut. But the Kansas great is not done.

Following in the footsteps of Tom Brady, Kelce also wants an opportunity to be an analyst for the NFL after his career is over. But that’s just the beginning of it all. During a conversation with Vanity Fair, Travis Kelce alluded to his dreams of hosting a game show someday in the future.

With his recent podcast, ‘No Heights’, Travis Kelce already seems to be a veteran in front of the camera, and being the business mind that he is, Kelce certainly has big things in store. And then there’s also his reality TV experience to fall back on.

The Travis Kelce show

Despite Kansas City Chiefs head coach, Andy Reid, not being a fan of this, Travis Kelce has had some reality TV success as well. Back in 2016, Kelce was busy exploring his chances at showbiz and even experienced some success during that stint. ‘Catching Kelce’ saw fifty eligible women assemble at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, all in a bid to impress the tight end.

All of these women were allowed 60 seconds of time to convince Kelce of their companionship and even though the show wasn’t something revolutionary, Kelce’s reality TV background would certainly be useful in brainstorming ideas for his next venture.
