In the postseason, he added 32 catches for 355 yards and four touchdowns as he helped the Chiefs win their second straight Super Bowl and third overall in five seasons.

Kelce, 34, has 907 receptions for 11,328 yards and 74 touchdowns in 11 NFL seasons. In 22 postseason games, he had an NFL record 165 catches for 1,903 yards and 19 touchdowns.
