Chiefs hint TE Travis Kelce could have larger role

Hearing a head coach say the sky is the limit for an already established star player is standard training camp fodder. However, when that coach is Andy Reid and that player is do-everything tight end Travis Kelce, some ears might start to perk up.

Reid said Kelce is essentially a wide receiver anyway, foreshadowing a potentially larger role for the two-time Pro Bowler who put up a career-high 85 catches for 1,125 yards and four touchdowns last year.

"I think every year you will see him probably get a little bit more here and there," Reid said, via the team's official site. "Different things, like you said, he plays a lot, so it will not be play time necessarily, but just variations of the passing game. He can basically do everything a wide receiver can do.
