Machine Gun Kelly offered Travis Kelce $500,000 in cash among other commodities if the footballers came to play for his hometown club.
While the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end remains loyal to his NFL team, the athlete previously admitted it was his original dream to represent his hometown team of Cleveland Browns.
“Please let me f****** play for Cleveland,” Kelce cried as he begged former Browns coach Rob Chudzinski to take him in before he was drafted by the Chiefs in 2013.
Now, Machine, who attended a Cleveland high school close to the school the Kelce brothers visited, made a bizarre proposal as he joined the record-breaking tight end for a chat on Travis and Jason Kelce’s new podcast, New Heights.
“I’m sure you get asked this question behind closed doors a lot,” Kelly began as he focused on Travis. “But I would remiss due to the nature of our friendship – and just as a Clevelander – if I did not insert this question personally: I will give you $500,000 – cash upon arrival, just for shopping or whatever you want – as well as matching that same amount as a donation to both of our high schools.”
He continued: “Both Shaker Heights and Cleveland Heights, as well as every day breakfast and coffee deliveries from my restaurant if you would just come home and put on these colors right here.”
After laughing the proposal off, Travis admitted that playing for Browns was his original dream and that this was an “intriguing offer.”
“You know that was the original dream… I tell you what: that is an intriguing offer because you know how much we love the east side of Cleveland – Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights,” he responded.
However, Kelce is clearly in no mood to leave his Chiefs brothers any time soon.
“I’m not going to lie: the situation is pretty good in Kansas City… Chiefs Kingdom, you know I love playing for the Kingdom baby. I don’t think I’ll ever play anywhere else but Cleveland was always the dream growing up – that’s for damn sure,” he added.
“Being a sports fan in Cleveland, you can’t not dream of playing for all three of the Cleveland sports teams.”
