Vikings, Rudolph reach contract extension agreement | AP sports

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

It was a long offseason of uncertainty, but tight end Kyle Rudolph will be sticking around in Minnesota after all. Minnesota, according to data in ESPN's roster-management system, had less than $1.3 million in cap space before negotiating the terms of Rudolph's new deal. Rudolph had 64 catches for 634 yards and four touchdowns in 16 starts last season. The Vikings are hoping to make a run back to the playoffs after a disappointing year in 2018.

"Just under a decade ago, I received a phone call that would change my life".

"Marrying my wife and establish [ing] our home.in Minnesota".

"Experiencing the birth of my three lovely children ... in Minnesota". Giving everything I can possibly give, professionally and personally, to the greatest sports franchise and its fans ... in Minnesota. And I am honored beyond words to say that my home, our home will always be.in Minnesota! However, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer had said all along the plan has been to play Rudolph and Smith together. He returned to the Pro Bowl in 2017. The deal will keep him in Minnesota through the 2023 season. It wasn't the biggest season, but it was still a solid all-around year. But the pressure that would put on Smith to perform immediately when rookie tight ends often face struggles might not be worth it.

"Being the best leader and the best football player that I can be so that this team can win a championship and we can do something that's never been done in this organization". That's part of the reason that they were tied to Rudolph in trade rumors, but nothing substantial ever came of that.

The Vikings announced the deal on Tuesday as minicamp began.
