He added that even though his family is receiving more media attention now, the only thing he's concerned about is Travis' happiness.

"My brother and his love life is definitely the topic of the NFL right now, and my whole thing with that is as long as Trav is happy and enjoying life, I'm happy and enjoying life," Jason continued.

Jason's thoughts on Swift, 34, came up in response to a question about how he and his family are dealing with the increased level of media attention brought on by Travis' romance.

He said he noticed the extra attention during a recent trip to Disney World with his wife Kylie and their three daughters, but he's trying not to let it impact him too much.

"You try not to change or do anything different," Jason said, noting his goal is to "act the same and be the same."

Jason plans to be in the stands in Las Vegas, rooting on Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs at the Super Bowl as they compete for the Lombardi Trophy against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

"It's going to be an awesome game to watch, I can't wait to watch it," he told the NFL Network. "But yeah, whenever you're watching a loved one compete, there's a very prideful feeling that you have that's very different than competing on your own or watching the game regularly."
