The Minnesota Vikings release Kyle Rudolph after ten seasons with the team. The Tight End has spent his entire career with the purple men from Minnesota. He was drafted in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Notre Dame.
Rudolph still had three years left on his contract. He was released to save close to $5 million in cap space for the team.
He confirmed the move in a letter on The Players Tribune. The statement read as follows:
“I want to thank the Vikings fan everywhere. I won’t go too long with it, because I like to think you know me pretty well by now, and you know what I stand for, but i just want to say two main things. One: I truly love you guys, and am so grateful for the support you’ve given me during my time here. It changed my life. And two: I really am sorry that I couldn’t help deliver a Super Bowl. I’d give just about anything to change that… and it pains me to be turning this page with any business left unfinished. But I think the team is in awesome hands. And when – not if, when – the Vikings finally win one, I’ll be the first in line to say congratulations. Nothing in the world would make me happier. (As long as it’s not against me!!)”
“And then the last thing I want to say, is that this is a thank you – But it’s not a goodbye”
The Vikings release Kyle Rudolph after those ten seasons in which he finished 453 receptions, 4,488 yards, and 48 touchdowns.
