NFL Stars Whove Shared Their Love For Taylor Swift Travis Kelce Aaron Rodgers and More Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has captured the attention of not only NFL’s prominent figures like Travis Kelce but also other notable stars in the league. New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for instance, made sure to attend several of Swift’s tour dates when she performed in East Rutherford, NJ in May 2023.
“I take great pride in showcasing my dance skills, and I’m not shy about being a devoted fan,” Rodgers revealed to Entertainment Tonight in July 2023, discussing his status as a Swiftie.
During that time, Rodgers gained widespread attention as videos of him enthusiastically singing along to tunes like “Shake It Off” circulated on social media. However, his Swiftie fanfare quickly took a backseat to another athlete.
Kelce has since emerged as the NFL’s most prominent Swiftie, openly confessing that he attempted to share his phone number with the pop star when he attended her Kansas City Eras Tour performance in July 2023. However, things didn’t unfold as planned, and in the ensuing months, speculation about a possible romantic connection between the two began to swirl.
“I told her, ‘You know, I’ve witnessed your electrifying performances at Arrowhead Stadium; perhaps you should come see me take the stage there and see which one is more exciting,'” Kelce shared during a September 2023 appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” addressing the ongoing dating rumors. “So, we’ll see what the future holds.”
While Kelce has garnered attention for his possible connection with the singer, he’s far from the sole NFL player who has openly expressed their fondness for Swift.
