Jason Kelce had nothing but praise for Taylor Swift as he labeled her a ‘role model’ and defended the NFL’s decision to feature her in their broadcasts.

The Philadelphia Eagles center spoke with WCPO 9 while preparing for the Pro Bowl games and discussed Swift’s impact on the NFL since his brother Travis went out. In a clip later shared on X, Kelce cheered on Swift’s success and positive effect on younger women.

“I think the NFL would probably be foolish not to showcase her and be a role model for all the young girls out there,” Kelce said.

“She’s a global star, she’s the quintessential, you know, artist in the world right now,” Kelce added, calling the 12-time Grammy winner an “extremely talented” artist and an “incredible role model for young women around the world. .’

Since dating Travis, Swift has been to 12 Chiefs games, and is expected to be at the Super Bowl for her 13th. Swift reportedly plans to fly from a concert in Tokyo the night before to support the Chiefs in Las Vegas.

A large portion of Swift’s fans flocked to the Chiefs when they began tuning in and attending live games, hoping to catch a glimpse of their idol.

Swift then became a staple at Kansas City games as the broadcasts relied on her in-game reactions during the Chiefs’ run to the Super Bowl.

“The attention is there because the audience wants to see it, I mean, if people didn’t want to see it, they wouldn’t have shown it, I know that,” Kelce said.

Kelce’s most recent comments weren’t the first time he celebrated Swift’s relationship with Travis and impact on the Chiefs.

He previously referred to the pop star as the ‘new member’ of the Chiefs on an episode of the New Heights podcast. Kelce then went on to say that Swift “officially made it to the Super Bowl in her rookie year.”

The Chiefs will look to win their second straight title against the San Francisco 49ers on February 11th.
