Kyle Rudolph To Sign 4-Year, $36M Contract Extension With Vikings

The Vikings reached a four-year deal with tight end Kyle Rudolph on Monday night ending weeks of uncertainty

Even before the draft, Rudolph's status had been the subject of speculation.

However, Minnesota and their longtime tight end figured out a way to agree to an extension and now he is under contract with the Vikings until 2024.

Given that the Patriots never seemed to show significant interest in Rudolph, this isn't a big deal. If true, this effectively means Rick Spielman and the Vikings front office have a yearly option to cut Rudolph in the offseason to regain cap space.

"I feel better now, from a physical standpoint, at 29 than I did at 21", he said.

- It's official. Kyle Rudolph is staying in Minnesota. On Tuesday, he signed a contract extension with Minnesota.

The wide receiver is at Atlanta Falcons' minicamp, but he isn't practicing.

For weeks, the New England Patriots have had nearly no answer for the retirement of Rob Gronkowski.

"The Patriots aren't about to give up a premium pick, and I don't mean a first-round pick, a premium pick for a guy going into the previous year of his contract at this time", Schefter said Friday on WEEI.

"I think they can (complement each other)", Zimmer said of 6-foot-2, 242-pound Smith Jr. and the 6-6, 265-pound Rudolph. "Throughout this entire process, the only thing that mattered was, at the end of the day, I'm here".

If the Vikings weren't serious about the way they view Rudolph's role as a necessary component to the success of this offense, they might have taken a gamble that they could have been just as successful without him. Clearly the Vikings believe Rudolph does indeed have "a lot of game left". If he sees something, he'll let me know, and if I make a good play, he'll let me know.
