He wasn't with her at the MTV VMAs last night, but speculation is bouncing around that Taylor Swift is spending some time with the brother of a Philadelphia Eagles football player.

The player is the Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce. His brother is also a football player. Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. Travis missed the Chiefs opening game last week due to injury but is expected back on the field as soon as this weekend.

You might remember hearing the story of Travis trying to meet Taylor at her concert in Kansas City this past summer. He was unsuccessful. From The Messenger: "During an episode of the New Heights podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end said he made a bracelet for the show with the digits of his phone number on the beads."

Maybe it was that story that prompted Taylor to reach out to Travis.

However the meeting apparently did occur, and the word, according to The Messenger is that Taylor and Travis have been "quietly hanging out."

The Messenger quotes a source as saying that the pair got together in New York City a few weeks ago.

So far, there's been no word from Donna Kelce - the mother of Travis and Jason.
