“Travis Kelce faced potential suspension and removal from the team due to immaturity, involving incidents related to marijuana and other youthful indiscretions. Essentially, it was a matter of youthful mistakes.”

Retired NFL wide receiver Jason Avant revealed that he was brought on by the Kansas City Chiefs to mentor a young Travis Kelce as he greatly struggled with immaturity in his early years.

Although Kelce has now bloomed into an ace on and off the field, Avant shared how he had to overcome and outgrow plenty of old habits to get to this point. The struggles, according to Avant, were remnants of Kelce’s collegiate years in Cincinnati.

 

Travis Kelce was getting suspended and kicked off the team for immature things, weed and other stuff like that. Just being young, basically,’ Avant told Action Network, via the Daily Star. ‘He stopped after joining the Chiefs, but now it’s legal so it wouldn’t matter now if he stopped it or not.’

While he admitted that the mishaps were a byproduct of his age, Avant also credited Kelce’s perfectionism and desire to be a professional.’Travis became a pro and realized he had to take this seriously and he’s been doing that ever since,’ he added.

Travis Kelce is a perfectionist,’ Avant added. ‘I remember when coach Andy Reid took me there to help Kelce develop into a professional because he had a lot of immaturities coming out of college. He had a lot of issues and it was my job to help.’

Though he was hired to help the young tight end stay out of trouble, Avant’s mentorship led to a healthy relationship with Kelce as his stardom grew with the Chiefs’ success.
