Travis Kelce already benched Alex Smith for Patrick Mahomes in ‘Madden’
The trade that will send Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins cannot be finalized until the new NFL league year begins in March, but Travis Kelce is wasting no time turning things over to first-round pick Patrick Mahomes.
On Thursday, Kelce stopped by the EA Sports Super Bowl party in Minneapolis to follow through after he challenged New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara to a game of “Madden NFL 2018.” While Smith is still the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs in the game, Kelce is looking to the future.

Might as well start preparing now, right? For what it’s worth, it would appear that Kamara got the best of Kelce.

Kelce has already thrown his full support behind Mahomes, recently saying that he believes the Chiefs can win a Super Bowl with the former Texas Tech star under center. In fact, there where times during the 2017 season where it appeared as though Kelce had quit on Smith, so the star tight end is probably welcoming the change.
