In an interview clip shared by CBS Mornings on Friday, the 28-year-old quarterback shared his thoughts on his teammate's high-profile romance with the 34-year-old pop star.

"At first, I feel like everybody kind of stayed away, let [Travis] do what he was doing," Patrick said.

"Then he started bringing Taylor around, and he realized how cool of a person she is, so for us, there were a couple of jokes here and there at the beginning, and now she's just part of Chiefs Kingdom, and she's part of the team."
