The Kansas City Chiefs are probably pretty happy with their current tight end situation, seeing as Travis Kelce is unanimously recognized as a top-two tight end in the NFL and is continuing to set new highs for himself. He isn't going anywhere soon, seeing as he's under contract until 2025 and has shown no signs of slowing down despite making it on to the wrong side of 30. In four more years, he'll have spent a dozen seasons in a Chiefs uniform and will very likely have surpassed fellow tight end Tony Gonzalez's franchise record 10,940 receiving yards, regardless of position.
However, he has a lot of work to do if he wants to catch up to Gonzalez in the real estate game. Whereas Kelce's Kansas City home was purchased for "only" $995 thousand — though he also reportedly has a sweet spot in a high-rise building — Gonzalez is on to a new residence after selling his for a casual $21.15 million, according to Jack Flemming of the Los Angeles Times. The buyer? Wayne Boich, a billionaire investor, whose other houses are in Miami and the Hamptons. You know, the places where I also own huge houses.
The amenities? Try seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and a whole list of features behind a 24-foot entry, including the following (via the listing by Rodeo Realty's Michelle Graci):
— A "study with custom cabinetry and double doors to the front of the estate"
— An "impressive chef's kitchen with La Cornue range and hood that flows into an extensive family room, and speakeasy inspired music lounge with floor to ceiling wine storage & chiseled limestone fireplace wall"
— A "primary suite with balcony overlooking the back of the estate, including the lighted tennis court, sparkling pool and expansive grounds"
— A "pool house cabana with gym" and "8-plus car subterranean garage"
That sound good enough for you? Would you dish out $21.15 million buckaroos for a chance to live here? If you would, you're a smart buyer, seeing as Flemming says Gonzalez's original asking price was supposedly $30 million.
According to Spotrac, Gonzalez earned $72.7 million over the course of his 17-year career, and he was worth every penny. The Hall of Fame tight end hauled in 1,325 passes for 15,127 yards and 111 touchdowns. And if those numbers don't mean much to you on the surface, here's the full list of NFL players who have broken the 1,300-catch, 15,000-yard and 100-touchdown plateaus (via Stathead):
Yeah. You want a $20-plus million house? Just do that.
