Travis Kelce has strong warning for Ja'Marr Chase

Kelce emphasized that if Chase wants to talk confidently, he needs to back it up on the field. The exchange between the AFC rivals began when Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow stated that Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL, leaving no room for debate until someone can dethrone him. In contrast, Chase holds Burrow in high regard, leading to his “Pat who?” comment.

“It is what it is, dog. Who doesn't love some good locker room banter, man?” Kelce said. “Shoutout to Ja'Marr Chase for holding it down for his QB, but don't you ever disrespect Pat Mahomes, now. If you wanna talk your s—, talk your s—, pimp. Just better back it up.”

“I thought it was a little bold,” expressed Kelce, highlighting Mahomes' accomplishments as a two-time league MVP and two-time Super Bowl MVP. He found Chase's remark questionable, considering Mahomes' status and achievements. Mahomes himself responded by tweeting a picture of him at the Chiefs' ring ceremony, proudly wearing his two Super Bowl rings with the caption “That's Who.”
