tears during brother Jason's

who has experience with professional athletes, heralded Travis as a role model, particularly for eroding elements of toxic masculinity.

‘Figures like Travis Kelce, it’s easy for us mere mortals to think about them up on a pedestal, so to be able to see them be comfortable with their vulnerability, I think is role modeling that sends a message that we have a bit more permission to express our emotions.

‘The coverage of Travis’s emotion has been almost universally supported and appreciated, There’s probably been a bit of relief that us men can let our hearts show.’

But Travis’s impact doesn’t end with his fans. Dr. Cuyler believes the three-time Super Bowl winner’s actions have made great strides to pave the way for his peers to be more open.

It’s not just about showing their emotions either as Dr. Cuyler insists that more support systems are being implemented within the league to allow players, coaches and their families to seek help with mental health struggles.

‘It can promote more openness to seeking help’ he adds. ‘The NFL has a formal outreach program.

‘It makes a real difference to see others leading the way, especially if there’s an accepted pathway in the sport to access. It gets it out in the open and the mystery, stigma and shame gets dispelled.’
