No Taylor Swift during an NFL game, according to Jason Kelce, would be “foolish.”

The Philadelphia Eagles player and brother of Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, also praised the singer-songwriter for being “immensely talented” and an “unbelievable role model for young women.”

Jason Kelce took a moment to praise Taylor Swift when asked how he felt about the NFL’s attention toward her during Travis Kelce‘s Kansas City Chiefs games this season.

“The attention is there because the audience wants to see it,” he told Caleb Noe, a reporter for Cincinnati’s ABC affiliate, WCPO 9. “I mean, if people didn’t want to see it, they wouldn’t be showing it. I know that.”

He continued, “She’s a world star. She’s the quintessential artist right now in the world, singer-songwriter, immensely talented, unbelievable role model for young women across the globe. So I think that the NFL would probably be foolish not to, you know, show her and be a role model for all the young girls out there.”

Kelce’s statement comes following months of pushback from football fans after the NFL spent a solid chunk of its broadcasts this season focusing more on Swift and less on the game.

In a conversation with his brother, Travis, on their podcast in October, Kelce asked the Chiefs tight end if he felt the NFL was overdoing it with the attention that was being put on Swift.

“I think everybody is just, like, overwhelmed,” Travis told his brother. “I think it’s fun when they show who all is at the game. I think it brings a little bit more to the atmosphere, brings a little bit more to what you’re watching. But at the same time, they’re overdoing it a little bit, especially my situation.”

The Eagles’ football season came to an end in early January, but the Chiefs will compete in the 2024 Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11.

Swift attended 12 regular-season Chiefs games. She could theoretically make an appearance at the final one if she can get to Las Vegas from Tokyo in time, following her final Era Tour stop in the Japanese capital the day before.
