Taylor Swift Turned Travis Kelce Into a ‘Different’ Man, Chiefs DB Coach Said

While Some “Brads, Dads, and Chads” were annoyed by Swift’s presence at games, Kelce’s coaches and teammates have had nothing but positive things to say.

During an appearance on “The Sports Shop with Reese and K-Mac,” Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt shared his take on their highly-publicized romance amid their Super Bowl run. Merritt revealed the singer quietly visited the team before she attended the Bears-Chiefs showdown on September 24.

“When she started to come around, it was privately,” Merritt said. “She was coming into the stadiums without people really knowing until the camera put, you know, the big spotlight on her.”

“Upon meeting her, I felt like she actually added to what we were trying to do,” he said. She quickly became a member of Chiefs Kingdom. While “so many people that were hating the fact that she was being shown on the TV,” everyone inside Arrowhead Stadium embraced her into the fold.

“You’re part of our family because you’re now with Travis. You’re our little sister… you’re part of the family.” Merritt noted that Kelce’s entire demeanor changed “in a positive way’ amid his romance with Swift.

“Everybody was excited and Travis was happy. So when my player, a brother, is happy beside me, that helps me and that encourages me, and so Travis came in there a different man. So, she helped us.”
