Kittle took the podium on the Super Bowl opening night and was confronted with a burning question of what he thought about Travis Kelce handling his football career and his love life with Taylor Swift. His response was reminiscent of the Druski meme, “What do you mean by that?” asked Kittle, seeking clarification from the reporter.

For a while, Kelce fell off, but as soon as the postseason began, the Chiefs TE was back in his natural form. The 49ers TE addressed that the Kelce-Swift relationship might distract some, but in the end, Travis handles it as best he can.

“Just got to keep living and learning and enjoying the moments,” he continued. “At the end of the day, I’ve always been pretty good about compartmentalizing and staying focused in this building. I’ll just keep rolling with that.”
