Travis kelce breaks silence on why NFL banned him for Three years for bumping and confronting Andy Reid at the Super Bowl “It was purely Unintentional and i….”



Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce apologized Wednesday morning for his Super Bowl sideline confrontation with his head coach Andy Reid, calling his behavior “unacceptable,” after an estimated 123 million people watched Kelce scream on the sidelines during the first half of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win on Sunday.

Kelce, a three-time Super Bowl champion and nine-time Pro Bowl selection with the Chiefs, apologized in an episode of his “New Heights” podcast, which he co-hosts with his brother, former Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce.

Jason Kelce brought up the incident, which occurred in the second quarter of the Chiefs’ dramatic 25-22 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers, telling the younger Kelce he “crossed the line” by accosting Reid, the Chiefs’ 65-year-old coach fresh off his third Super Bowl win with the team.

The Chiefs’ tight end agreed that he crossed a line, saying he “can’t get that fired up to that point where I’m bumping coach and it’s getting him off balance and stuff,” adding the incident “came in a moment where we weren’t playing very well” and that “emotions get away from me.”

The Super Bowl sideline blowout—which Kelce said both he and Reid were able to “chuckle” about later—came as the Chiefs’ offensive woes against a formidable 49ers defense kept them to only 3 points in the first half, with Chiefs’ running back Isiah Pacheco fumbling in the red zone.

Reid told ESPN Kelce “caught [him] off balance” during the altercation, with Kelce demanding he be put back on the field, saying: “I’ll score, I’ll score.” Reid also downplayed the event in a post-game press conference, adding that “as much as [Kelce] bumps into” him, he “get[s] after him, and we understand that.” The blow up was not Reid’s first with Kelce: Reid reportedly gave Kelce an angry snarl in the Chiefs’ loss to the Eagles in November, and the pair got into a heated confrontation during a 20-14 regular season loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in December, when Kelce slammed his helmet on the ground and Reid proceeded to yell at the tight end.
