Kylie, who received accolades this month for her commencement speech at her alma mater Caprini University, was frustrated by Budger’s comments, which Jason said joked he asked her to make him a sandwich.

“My wife, I think she was a little frustrated by some of the comments. At the beginning I said, listen, you have to go back to the kitchen and make me a sandwich. I’m listening to the game right now,” said Jason, who was chastised by his brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, for leaving the lane.

“We did so well, we killed it,” Travis, 34, said, to which Jason replied, “I hope she didn’t hear that.”

Kylie, who married Jason in 2018, told Caprini’s graduates to stay true to who they are as they move on to the next chapters of their lives.

“Find things that speak to you. You can make a difference in your enthusiasm, and you’re amazing just the way you are. said KylieGraduated in 2017.

Like Travis, who praised Budger as a person but disagreed with his opinions, Jason offered a similar sentiment Friday.

“We’ve played our whole careers with people who didn’t agree on everything. I don’t know that I’ve ever played with a teammate that he and I agreed on everything we each thought,” Jason said. “That’s the beauty of it, you find a way to work together, you find a way to grow together.”
