Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was seen entering the back door of the of the Envue Hotel in Weehawken, New Jersey on Saturday after a day with girlfriend Taylor Swift in Manhattan.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Kelce is seen wearing a t-shirt reading ‘I’m not doing s*** today,’ while inconspicuously meandering through the hotel’s rear entrance.
The eight-time Pro Bowler and the Chiefs are set to face the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey this weekend, giving Kelce a reason to be entering a New Jersey hotel and potentially using the back door to avoid being seen by raving fans.
Swift is expected to be in attendance for the game this weekend as well, according to various reports.
She was seen sitting next to Kelce’s mother Donna in a suite during the Chiefs win against the Chicago Bears last week, being seen leaving the arena with Kelce.

NBC has leaned into the Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce hype by using one of the pop star’s songs for the Chiefs matchup at the Jets this Sunday night.
With Swift reportedly set to be in attendance again this weekend to cheer on Kelce, NBC fittingly used her song ‘Welcome to New York’ in a Sunday Night Football teaser clip.
Of course, the video prominently features Kelce and includes the lyrics, ‘Welcome to New York, it’s been waiting for you.’
The clip was captioned ‘Taylor Made for Sunday Night’ on Twitter.
Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers is also expected to be back in attendance at MetLife Stadium on Sunday night, after being away from the team during New York’s last two games while recovering from a season-ending torn Achilles.
Rodgers suffered the injury only four plays into his Jets debut.

Following the injury the Jets turned to Zach Wilson -who was benched twice last season due to poor play- and the results have been far from desirable.
Wilson helped the Jets narrowly secure a miraculously overtime win against the Buffalo Bills, before turning in abysmal performances in losses to the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.
The third-year QB’s production in the loss to New England has sparked countless negative headlines throughout the week that have ranged from franchise legend Joe Namath going full scorched earth as he called for Wilson to be traded away due to his ‘disgusting’ play, along with reports players on the defense were becoming angry with head coach Robert Saleh for remaining loyal to Wilson.
New York added veteran journeyman Trevor Siemian to the practice squad this week although it remains to be seen if he can be New York’s savior at the game’s most important position if Wilson continues to deliver subpar performances.
