The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly agreed to terms on an adjusted contract with All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce, sources with knowledge of the deal told NFL Network senior insider Ian Rapoport.

Kelce will reportedly receive a raise for the 2022 season after the Chiefs moved $3 million "forward from the back" of his contract, the source confirmed.

"The #Chiefs and star TE Travis Kelce have agreed to terms on an adjusted contract to give him a raise in 2022, sources say," Rapoport tweeted. "Money is moved from the back of the deal to properly compensate Kelce."

Kelce, a three-time first-team All-Pro and seven-time Pro Bowl selection, has been one of the NFL's best tight ends during the past decade since being selected by the Chiefs at No. 63 overall in the third-round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The former University of Cincinnati standout enters his 10th NFL season with 704 receptions for 9,006 yards and 57 touchdowns, having previously set league records for most 1,000-yard receiving seasons by a tight end (6); most consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons by a tight end (6); most receiving yards in a season by a tight end (1,416); and most 100-reception seasons by a tight end (2).

Kelce was instrumental in the Chiefs' 2019-20 Super Bowl run, recording six receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown during Kansas City's 31-20 Super Bowl LIV win against the San Francisco 49ers, as well as a combined 31 receptions for 360 yards and four touchdowns during three postseason games.
