The NFL general manager position is key for making decisions, especially in regards to the roster and personnel. However, it’s hard to imagine someone reaching such a high position without having a deep understanding of football.
Mike Sando, a senior writer for The Athletic, recently discussed the Chiefs’ underperformance in the “Pick Six” column. He shared an anonymous general manager’s harsh opinion on the team’s tight end, Travis Kelce, suggesting he is declining.
Sando cited Kelce’s career-low 11.2 yards per reception as a sign of decline, but also shared a counterpoint from an anonymous offensive coordinator, praising Kelce’s performance.
The general manager’s comments about Kelce may seem laughable, but Kelce is still putting up impressive numbers. Despite showing signs of regression, Kelce’s stats and achievements still place him among the top tight ends in the league.
While Kelce may not age as gracefully as other tight ends, he continues to play at an elite level and maintain excellent health, making him a valuable asset to the Chiefs’ offense.
