Travis Kelce may be making the most of the NFL offseason, but the Chiefs tight end always keeps one piece of advice from Andy Reid top of mind.

‘The biggest thing he says is, “Don’t lose your personality. Let that thing show,”‘ the Kansas City star said of his coach in a behind-the-scenes clip from a new ZenWTR ad campaign.

Elsewhere in the video, Kelce discussed his desire to earn a fourth Super Bowl ring, along with his relationship with his teammates, including Patrick Mahomes.

‘Having great family members and friends, I feel like that’s the biggest thing in terms of growth is just having people around you that can check you, but also give you confirmation and reassurance that you’re doing things the right way,’ he explained.

‘Looking at the legacy, I just want to be known as somebody that was selfless and really wanted to make a difference in the communities that he was playing in.’

Kelce also outlined his routine on a typical practise day with the Chiefs.

My first hour is wake up, get a good breakfast, get a healthy breakfast, fuel up. Know that I’m about to go out and work out here soon – and at least know I have to be [attentive] in meetings and stuff,’ he said.

‘So make sure I fuel up and part of that is hydrating, and making sure I’m doing the right things,’ he continued.

Kelce, who will return for his twelfth season with the team as the highest paid tight end in the league, has been enjoying his time away from the field.

The athlete, who inked a two-year, $34.25 million in April, has been jetting around the world with his girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

He most recently flew to Europe to support the pop star on her record-breaking Eras Tour.

Kelce was also spotted taking a whiskey shot from a slice of bread in true southern fashion over the weekend, while letting loose at his music festival, Kelce Jam.

The week prior, he tried his hand at acting on the set of Ryan Murphy’s new FX series, Grotesquerie.

‘It’s been so much fun,’ Travis told his brother, Jason Kelce, on the New Heights podcast.

‘I feel like a jabroni, I feel like an amateur, but I haven’t gotten fired yet,’ he went on. ‘They haven’t told me to f**king kick rocks after the first week.’
