Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has taken a shot at Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, referring to the comparison the tight end has been given all offseason of being the next Rob Gronkowski. He decided to call him a 'fake Gronk heada$$'.

The two players have a well known rivalry both on and off the field, which came into the limelight last season.

Miller was flagged for a late hit on Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith last December. After the incident, Kelce was caught by the cameras making a gesture indicating he wasn't impressed by the lack of discipline from Miller.

After the game, he tweeted the following, according to Arrowhead Pride: "Me gesture on the TV tonight wasn't towards the ref... @Millerlite40 had a cheap shot on my QB, so I thought he deserved a shot to the face."

Kelce later deleted the tweet and apologised, but he then tweeted this:

Now, the rivalry has been renewed once again, as Miller has responded to the performance the tight end gave for his team on Thursday night of four receptions for 58 yards with this tweet:

It is evidently clear that the Broncos linebacker doesn't believe in the comparison that Kelce is the next Gronkowski. As the tight end's statistics from the game show, Miller and the rest of the defense had him under control, and he wasn't allowed to run freely like he did against the Houston Texans.

In that game, Kelce had six receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns. But in the battle between him and Miller, it seems the Broncos linebacker has taken the lead.

We'll have to wait until November 15 when the two teams meet again to see who eventually takes the crown for the season between the two outspoken players.
