Travis Kelce laughs off NFL announcer’s cheeky Taylor Swift comments amid dating rumors

Travis Kelce is laughing off those Taylor Swift dating rumors.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end responded to an Instagram video montage from NFL Network’s Rich Eisen, which featured the broadcaster making plenty of not-so-subtle Swift puns during Kelce’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

“Well played Rich…. Well played,” Kelce, 33, wrote in the comments section, adding an emoji of clapping hands and a crying face.

As seen in the video, Eisen couldn’t resist making references to the singer any time Kelce made a significant play that helped the Chiefs win 17-9 over the Jaguars.

“Even [with] that bone bruise and the injury, one would think is ‘delicate’ … he’s been able to ‘shake it off,’” Eisen quipped, referencing some of Swift’s most popular tracks.

“You saw it on Thursday night, when Travis Kelce wasn’t in there it left a ‘blank space,’ but I think he returns today and proves to be the ‘anti-hero.’”

NFL Network's Rich Eisen repeatedly poked fun at the gossip during Sunday's broadcast.

Eisen added the NFL Network as a collaborator to the post and captioned it, “Look what you made me do, @killatrav.”

However, Eisen wasn’t the only announcer to poke fun at the dating headlines over the weekend. During Sunday’s game, a clip from broadcaster Ian Eagle also went viral.

“Kelce finds a blank space for the score,” he exclaimed, after Kelce caught a pass from Patrick Mahomes in the end zone.

The singer has reportedly been getting to know the Kansas City Chiefs tight end for a few weeks.

Kelce and Swift, 33, have reportedly been getting to know each other ever since the athlete tried – and failed – to give the singer his phone number at her Eras Tour concert in August.

The rumor mill has gone wild ever since, with the athlete’s older brother, Jason Kelce, even weighing in on fan speculation.

During a post-game interview last week, the Philadelphia Eagles star was asked to dish on his brother’s relationship status.

“So you talk about family, I have a 15-year-old daughter, and she’s a big fan of a certain pop star, and you have a family member — a brother — and I’ve been hearing rumors, maybe some stuff. Can you comment?” Football Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez asked Jason on “Thursday Night Football.”

“I’ve seen these rumors, I cannot comment. Ever since ‘Catching Kelce,’ everybody has been infatuated with Travis’ love life,” he explained. “I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun. We’ll see what happens with whoever he ends up with.”

Page Six has reached out to reps for Swift and Kelce for comment.
