Ranking the Best NFL Doubles of the Past Decade | Ovarian report
2. Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelsey
Really, you can add Tyreek Hill to this conversation without arguing from me. Hill spent six seasons alongside Travis Kelsey, while Mahomes and Kelsey were involved in lead roles for five years.
But this second Super Bowl has to count for something extra.
Mahomes has already earned two league MVP honors and made the AP All-Pro team in three of those campaigns. Through his 80 career starts, the Chiefs were 64-16 in the regular season and have advanced at least to the AFC Championship in all five rounds of the playoffs.
As if that’s not enough, Kelce has five consecutive years with at least 92 receptions or 1,125 yards. He earned All-Pro recognition each season, including three first-team honors.
The Kansas City Dynasty is largely thanks to Mahomes and Kelce.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Chris Jones, dl
The Rams replacing Aaron Donald with Chris Jones shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. There were some people bringing this up as a real possibility when Donald was contemplating retirement. If you can’t get a quarterback, get a player who’s better at reaching the quarterback.

Kansas City ChiefsSigned by Will Goulston
Golston is a seasoned veteran who has played at least 400 catches in nine consecutive seasons. He can bring experience to a new system while providing a steady presence in the base personnel in the early downs. In 2022, Golston had 22 defensive stops and only missed 3.9% of his tackle chances.
We’ve discussed expanding Chris Jones here, and as Kansas City works through that monster deal, they should bolster internal unity on his side.
2023 NFL Superstar Club: Jalen Hurts and CeeDee Lamb join; Russell Wilson, Withdrawal from Dak Prescott | NFL.com
He doesn’t play the glorified QB position in the game, but the Chiefs pass catcher might be the most perfectly distilled version of a superstar in the league today. A monster producer, enduring and consistent, upping his game when it really matters and possessing charisma for miles (he was legally excellent as a guest host on Saturday Night Live!). Kells has it all. The only problem? He is alone at the end of the tight match. It seems like the perfect time for that second season of a long pregnancy Catching Kelsey.

6. Max Crosby (Las Vegas Raiders)
Speaking of rushers that get laid off, Crosby can’t seem to get what he deserves as one of the better hitting quarterbacks. Crosby put together another huge season as a rushing tackle, recording a career-high 12.5 sacks to go along with 81 pressures (third in the NFL). The pressure rate dropped from 18.1% in 2021 to 13.2%, yet Crosby ranked second in the league in quarterback hits (36) and first in tackles for loss (22).
Crosby has the most pressures in the NFL over the past two seasons (182), along with the most pressures (116). He also ranks second in quarterback hits (66) and tied for second in tackles for loss (35).
A Pro Bowler for the second year in a row, Crosby is one of the best pass tackles in the NFL. He’d be in the elite class if his sack totals went up, which has been trending in that direction over the course of his career.
DeVante Parker and Patriots agree to a 3-year, $33 million contract with a $14 million guarantee | Ovarian report
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the wide receiver and the AFC East team have agreed to a three-year contract worth up to $33 million that includes $14 million in guarantees and per-game bonuses.
Parker spent the 2022 season with New England after playing the first seven years of his career with the Miami Dolphins.
The 2023 campaign is set to be the last of the previous decade for the Louisville product. He was set to earn $5.7 million in base salary and carry a payout of $6.2 million, so this gives him a raise and some extra security in the coming years.

Travis Kelce values playing for the Chiefs more than making his own
In the latest issue of Vanity FairTom Kludt, contributing editor Published a 5,000 word article about the Kansas City Chiefs Tight end Travis Kelsey, covering everything from his last appearance onwards NBC Television “Saturday Night Live” (“Killing Her”) quotes Klodt SNL (producer Lorne Michaels) told what he would do when his football career finally came to an end. (“I don’t know if what I want to do has already been done,” Kelsey tells him.)
Kelsey talked about being suspended from the University of Cincinnati football team. Claude reminded him that Butch Jones, his then-head coach at Cincinnati, considered him “one of his sons,” and Keelche fell into tears.
“It caught me at a moment in my life where I was down in the dumps. I didn’t think much of myself,” he says. He had a turbulent career in Cincinnati, arriving as a quarterback, leaving tight end, and enduring a one-year suspension for smoking pot in between. Of this poignant moment, he said, “When I hit what I was going through, I found out how many people were in my corner.”
After an undefeated regular season in 2009, Cincinnati was invited to play in the Sugary, and Kelsey hit Bourbon Street hard. “I was in New Orleans, listening to Lil Wayne, and I wanted to smoke what he was smoking,” he recalled. But on New Year’s Eve, the night before a game and days out, he and his teammates were called up for drug testing by the NCAA. “I’m sitting there, dead in the water,” he recalls. Under NCAA rules at the time, Kelsey was suspended for one year. “I just wanted to get out of there,” he says. “I was so embarrassed, I didn’t want to look at anyone.”
