Taylor Swift ‘could do a lot worse’ than Chiefs star Travis Kelce, Stephen A. Smith claims amid rumors of their romance: ‘Champions like champions’
Taylor Swift could do a lot worse than Travis Kelce, believes Stephen A. Smith, who tipped his hat to the Chiefs star after rumors emerged suggesting the tight end is dating the pop sensation.
‘Champions like champions. My brother, more power to you,’ the sports analyst said amid reports that Kelce, 33, has been ‘hanging out’ with the singer.
Rob Gronkowski – a four-time Super Bowl champion – suggested the power couple would be the ‘No 1 Ken and Barbie in the NFL’.
And now Smith has said both Kelce and Swift ‘could do a lot worse’ than each other.
‘So I’ve heard the Travis Kelce — my brother from another mother, I love that brother he’s one of the coolest people I know — I know he’s possibly dating Taylor Swift,’ Smith said on Monday’s episode of the ‘Stephen A Smith Show‘.
Travis Kelce made his season debut Sunday, scoring a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 17-9 win

‘Taylor Swift, you could do a lot worse. But so could he because I haven’t gotten over that Taylor Swift concert. I mean, she was off the chain.
‘Getting that out of the way, Travis Kelce with Taylor Swift… that’s not bad. That’s not bad now.’
Smith suggested the pair’s individual success could naturally attract them to one another.
‘I sincerely doubt that Travis Kelce will find anyone more successful than her. I mean she made over $5billion in this concert tour. Travis Kelce is a Super Bowl champion — champions like champions. My brother, more power to you.’

Kelce, who previously dated influencer and broadcaster Kayla Nicole, was first linked to Swift earlier this month.
They were reported to have been hanging out when the Midnights hit-maker visited New York a few weeks ago, the Messenger reported last week.
Kelce, who made his season debut Sunday, scoring a touchdown in the Chiefs’ 17-9 win over the Jaguars, first tried to link up with Swift when her Eras tour came to Kansas City in the summer.
Last week, the tight end’s brother Jason addressed the reported romance, saying: ‘I cannot comment… ever since ‘Catching Kelce,’ everybody has been infatuated with Travis’ love life. I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun.”
