When it comes to Travis Kelce‘s relationship with Taylor Swift, the tight end’s teammates are just along for the ride. In a recent interview, Drue Tranquill of the Kansas City Chiefs shared whether the high-profile romance ever comes up among the other players, revealing that the team loves “poking fun” at No. 87.

“It’s interesting,” Tranquill said on CBS Sports Radio’s Zach Gelb Show in a Wednesday (Jan. 24) clip. “You don’t really feel it and hear too much of it inside the locker room. But it’ll be moments like at practice when … our DJ turns on a Taylor Swift song and everybody kind of jokes about it.”

“I think the wives and the girlfriends, I hear about it more when I go home than I do actually in the building,” he continued. “But it’s been fun, man. That’s something to celebrate, something fun and we enjoy poking fun at Travis.”

Since striking up a romance with Kelce over the summer last year, Swift and her frequent attendance at his games have been a hot topic among Chiefs Kingdom. In December, quarterback Patrick Mahomes said that the “Anti-Hero” singer was a “great woman” adding, “she and Travis match so well.” Shortly before that, Kansas City coach Andy Reid called Swift a “good girl” and said that the team is “glad she’s here.”

“It seems like maybe they’re in love, man,” added Tranquill. “They’ve got really, really something going, and we enjoy having her at our games. It brings a lot of energy and a lot of fun to our fans. And so that’s good for business, good for football and good for the NFL.”

But does Tranquill envision receiving an invite to what would undoubtedly be one of the most star-studded weddings of all time down the line? “We’ll see, man, we’ll see,” he said, laughing. “I think there’s gonna be a lot of people that wanna go to that.”
