Amidst rumors of a fresh romance between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, a football Hall of Famer has called upon Kelce’s brother, Jason, to elaborate.

On Thursday Night Football, host Tony Gonzalez took a moment live on the air to ask a very personal—and, some have said, off-brand—question of the Eagles center. Gonzalez admitted that he has a teenage daughter who’s “a big fan of a certain pop star,” which sent Jason into fits of giggles. Gonzalez asked him to comment on his brother’s alleged relationship with Swift, but Jason declined to comment.

“What are we, TMZ?! What is going on here??” pressed co-anchor Richard Sherman as Gonzalez desperately backtracked, explaining he was only asking the question for his daughter. Apparently, that was good enough for Jason, because he then proceeded to spill just enough info. “Ever since Catching Kelce, everybody has been infatuated with Travis’ love life,” the elder Kelce remarked, referring to Travis’ dating show. “I don’t really know what’s going on there. I know Trav is having fun.”

Rumors began to swirl in July when Travis attended a Swift show and tried to slip her a friendship bracelet with his number on it. At the time, she wasn’t having it, but earlier this month an unnamed source revealed that "Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out. She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago." Since then, beloved Tex-Mex chain Chili’s proposed hosting their first date. Swift and Kelce haven’t responded to the offer, but it’d be difficult for anyone to turn down an Awesome Blossom.
