LeBron James as a TE?
While Travis Kelce was being interviewed on ESPN Radio’s “KeyShawn, JWill & Max” on Wednesday. The Chiefs’ tight end offered LeBron a spot at the Tight End University; a brand created by Kelce, George Kittle, and Greg Olsen to bring together all the tight ends of the league.
"I still got the jersey too, that Jerry [Jones] and Pete Carroll sent me from 2011."

“The invitation for LeBron to come to tight end U is open, man, it’s there,” Kelce said when asked if he would welcome James to tight end U. “I’ve got him a seat right next to me if he wants to come. We’ll show him a little bit of what it takes, but I think LeBron would fit and match perfectly in a Kansas City Chiefs uniform playing the tight end position.”

Kelce invited James to TE University
Kelce later took the matter more seriously and tweeted a part of his interview and said, “Us NE Ohio guys are all-around athletes!! I know @KingJames would be a dominant force in the TE room!! @te_university let’s get em an invite for next year!!”
Later, LeBron replied to Kelce’s invitation and tweeted, “@tkelce let me know when TE U is going on. I’m pulling up for training and all.”
Looks like there will be a new face around the group of tight ends next year and it won’t be an NFL player. It will be exciting to watch how an NBA GOAT performs after years of being considered for a TE job. With the NBA season commencing in October, cross-sport interactions like these simply bring a smile to sports fans’ faces.
