Jason Kelce says Travis 'crossed a line' when he exploded at coach Andy Reid during the Super Bowl

The Kansas City Chief's player's older brother has weighed in on Travis' behavior at the Super Bowl.

Travis Kelce's brother has spoken out about the Kansas City Chief's behavior at the 2024 Super Bowl.

Travis Kelce went home victorious from the Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday (11 February), however, there was one moment which tainted viewers' experience of seeing Travis on-screen.

And it's led to the 34-year-old coming under fire on social media, Swifties even urging Taylor to 'break up' with the NFL player over his 'red flag' behavior. Catch the moment here:

During the Chief's game against the San Francisco 49ers, Travis was caught on camera having a moment with his team's coach, Andy Reid.

And no, it wasn't anywhere near the sort of warm moments he'd been pictured sharing with girlfriend Swift, but a moment which was later reviewed by a body language expert as seeing Travis exhibit some 'real anger'.

The footage shows Travis appearing to approach the 65-year-old coach from the side before grabbing him by the arm, causing him to stumble.

It didn't take long for viewers to flood to social media in concern, one user writing: "You don’t get to ape up someone all aggressive like just because you’re frustrated. Taylor, my darling, my dove, my lamb, this is a big red flag."

And Travis and his brother Jason have since discussed the moment in today's episode (14 February) of their podcast titled New Heights.

In a clip from the episode, Jason tells Travis it looked like he 'caught Big Red [Reid] off-guard a little bit'.

Travis admits he 'got him with a cheap shot' and notes he 'get[s]' why 'people are all over' the incident.

Jason emphasises to his brother that he 'crossed a line,' adding he thinks Travis can 'agree on that too'.

Travis explains his 'frustration' wasn't directed at his coach, but at being on the sideline and him wanting Reid to see his 'passion' and how much he wanted the victory so he could be put back on the pitch and 'get s**t done'.

He adds he 'loves' Reid and the pair have a 'certain relationship' and were able to 'kind of chuckle' about it after.

Despite this, Jason notes people clearly aren't aware of the pair's relationship and the 'optics of it look really bad', even though it was an 'accidental' push.

"Let’s be honest. The yelling in his face, too, is over the top. I think there’s better ways to handle this, retrospectively," Travis' brother adds.

Ultimately, Travis admits his behavior was 'definitely unacceptable,' resolving: "I can’t get that fired up to the point where I’m bumping coach and it’s getting him off balance and stuff. When he stumbled, I was just like, ‘Oh, s**t,’ in my head.

"[...] I immediately wished I took it back. Coach Reid actually came right up to me after that and didn't even have harsh words for me. I was ready to get a f**king a**-chewing and for him to just tell me to f**king be better. And he just let me know, 'Hey man, I love your passion. I got cameras on me all over the place, man. You don't want this to come off ...'

Despite the incident, there's no bad blood between the pair.

Travis adds: "That's how much I love that dude, man. Big Red, sorry if I caught you with a cheap shot, baby."

Reid addressed the incident while speaking with journalists saying Travis simply 'caught [him] off balance,' as quoted by ABC.

"He was really coming over [and saying], 'Just put me in, I'll score. I'll score,'" the coach continued. "So, that's really what it was. I love that."
