Dallas Cowboys fans certainly can’t be happy with an interesting tidbit courtesy of Kansas City Chiefs superstar tight end Travis Kelce.

As hard as it is to believe now, Kelce was not exactly super highly-touted entering the 2013 NFL Draft. He was a third-round pick (63rd overall) by the Chiefs that year, and four tight ends were taken before him.

During the latest edition of the “New Heights” podcast that he co-hosts with older brother Jason Kelce, Travis revealed that he had an awful interview with the Cowboys ahead of the draft.

The Cowboys addressed Kelce’s one-year suspension at Cincinnati for smoking marijuana. Travis told America’s Team not to draft him if they were still worried about his character. Sure enough, they made the mistake of actually listening to him:

And that meant a frenzy of tweet from fans over the team’s mind-boggling decision to pass on a future generational talent in Kelce:

On one hand, Cowboys fans can argue that the pass-catching position wasn’t their biggest need at the time. They already had a future Hall of Tame TE in Jason Witten, star wideout Dez Bryant and even future rushing champion DeMarco Murray in the backfield.

But they did use a second-round pick (47th overall) on tight end Gavin Escobar, who saw limited playing time over his four years there.

There’s no guarantee Kelce would have developed into a future Hall of Fame talent in Dallas. But if the Chiefs didn’t land him, we certainly wouldn’t be talking about an NFL dynasty in the Midwest, either.
