Rudolph Gets Extension

Rudolph is a great red zone target. 

According to FOX Sports reporter Jay Glazer, Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph signed a five-year, $36.5 Million extension.

The 6’5″, 265-pound, 24-year old Notre Dame product is entering his fourth year in the NFL. In 2013, Rudolph registered 30 receptions, 313 receiving yards (10.4 yards/rec avg), and three touchdowns in eight regular season games, respectively.

Rudolph has displayed flashes of potential, and with his prodigious frame, he could be lethal in goal-to-go situations. With 2014 first round draft pick quarterback Teddy Bridgewater heading the Vikes’ future, the franchise stabilized the tight end position through the 2018 season.

The Vikings’ future is bright, and with an emerging tight end, their offense will have a non-quarterback cornerstone.
