Travis Kelce should definitely take his skills to his preferred NFL team, according to a well-known rapper.
Before his NFL career ends, rapper Machine Gun Kelly wants Travis Kelce to play for the Cleveland Browns, the team that he grew up rooting for.
The tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, Kelly, a native of a Cleveland suburb, made a pitch to return home in the most recent installment of the “New Heights” podcast. If Kelce decided to join the Browns, Kelly promised him $500,000 in cash, a donation of that same amount to each of their high schools, and daily deliveries of coffee and breakfast.

“I’m sure you get asked this question behind closed doors a lot, but I would be remiss if due to the nature of our friendship, and just as a Clevelander, if I did not insert this question personally,” Kelly said.
“I will give you $500,000 cash upon arrival just for shopping or whatever you want as well as matching that same amount as a donation to both of our high schools, both Shaker Heights and Cleveland Heights, as well as every day breakfast and coffee delivery from my restaurant, if you would just come home and put on these colors right here.”

Cleveland Heights, Ohio, where Travis and his brother Jason were raised, is about ten miles away from Cleveland Browns Stadium.
Even though Kelce acknowledged that being a member of the Browns was “the original dream,” he is content in Kansas City. When Kelly displayed his Browns clothing during the call, the Kelce brothers erupted in laughter.
Kelly was joined by Kelce onstage at the Kansas City Jam Music Festival earlier this year. With an 8-3 record and the second AFC playoff spot, the Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl winners. Conversely, the 7–4 Browns are now the No. 6 playoff seed and occupy the third AFC North position.
