Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce made it clear to the team that he was hoping to receive a pay raise this offseason, but he wasn’t planning on making things difficult on the franchise with which he’s spent his entire 11-year career.

While speaking with his brother Jason Kelce on the latest episode of the New Heights podcast, the 34-year-old said he never considered holding out to get his new deal and he’s grateful that he and the team were able to reach an agreement.

“I’m so excited and so thankful to this organization for getting it done, making me feel appreciated and compensated the right way, and on top of that I got to move the needle for the tight end room,” he said (h/t ESPN’s Adam Teicher). “It’s everyone else’s job to keep making that tight end AAV [average annual value] go up and up with every single contract that’s better than mine in the future. I’m so fricking thankful to [general manager] Brett Veach, [president] Mark Donovan, Coach [Andy] Reid — Big Red, I love you, big guy — and obviously [team owner] Clark Hunt.”
