It’s common practice at training camp. The Chiefs players sign autographs for fans all the time.
But Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had a slightly different experience with a fan on Monday, and he talked about the encounter on Snapchat.
“So a guy came up to me after practice and he told me: ‘Sign my arm,’ ” Kelce recounted.
He told the man: “Um, sir, I don’t think that’s the best decision to make at this point.”

“So after I tell him that, the guy proceeds to tell me, he says, ‘No, I’m going straight to the tattoo parlor to get it tattooed on my arm.’ ”
Kelce’s response: “You don’t want to do that.”
But about an hour after practice, someone named Joel Smith shared this on Instagram:
“Needless to say, me and that man have a bond that can never be broken,” Kelce said. “An awkward bond, but still ... a bond.”
