“I got ‘Kel-see’ then I got ‘Kels.’ My real name is ‘Kels,’ so I mean I just kind of roll with the punches,” Kelce revealed on a Barstool Sports podcast.
The revelation appeared to shock Kelce’s teammates Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Chris Jones and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

There was apparently proof that Kelce pronounced his name. A clip of Kelce from the 2020 AFC Championship surfaced.
Kelce joined the Chiefs in 2013 when he was selected in the third round of the NFL Draft out of Cincinnati. He only played in one game during his first year with the Chiefs. It wasn’t until 2014 he started to emerge as a viable receiver and then was a Pro Bowler by 2015.
He’s made the Pro Bowl each year since the 2015 season and racked up All-Pro selections in 2016, 2018 and 2020.
