This is big news out of Minnesota today. The Vikings announced they are releasing long-time tight end, Kyle Rudolph. Rudolph has spent his entire ten-year career with the Vikings organization. He was drafted 43rd overall by the Vikings back in 2011. In his career in Minnesota, Rudolph managed to put up 4,488 receiving yards and 48 touchdowns, but that isn’t all. He is most famous for catching the game-winning touchdown in overtime against New Orleans in the 2020 Wild Card game.

Rudolph is a very reliable option at the tight end position for any team. He is a beast on the jump ball, can block very well, and has great speed. His explosive style of play will certainly help any team that requires help at the tight end position.
Where will Kyle Rudolph end up signing? Some great spots I can see him in are Dallas, Seattle, or even Miami. Dallas hasn’t had an explosive tight end since Jason Witten left a few years ago. Seattle has never had a superstar tight end in some years now. The Jimmy Graham experiment didn’t play out and Greg Olsen was a one-year stump. If Miami can acquire its rights to the team, they will have a great duo in Rudolph and Gisicki.
