May 25, 2019
On Wednesday after the offseason practice of Vikings second voluntary Organized Team Activity, Kyle Rudolph said that there was some clarity in contract talks between Brian Murphy, his agent and the team
Rudolph emphasized that his agent and the team were working extremely hard for getting something done, and it could be said that there are a lot of other teams which were interested. For him it was clarity that he could be in this team setting that he enjoyed, got to come out every day and worked with his teammates and had fun at OTAs.
In the 2011 NFL Draft the second round, The Vikings drafted Rudolph and extended him on a five-year deal which is set to expire right after the 2019 season, that will be his ninth in Minnesota.
Last month in the second round the Vikings drafted Irv Smith, Jr., , there was some speculation considering Rudolph’s status. Last week before playing in the Mike Zimmer Golf Classic to raise fund for the Mike Zimmer Foundation, he addressed it and again on Wednesday.
On Tuesday in order to attend the first OTA, Rudolph made sure to fly early from New York to Minnesota. On Monday he was honored at the Irish Eyes Gala of Kelly Cares Foundation which created by Brian Kelly- Notre Dame Head Coach and his wife, Paqui.
Rudolph simply said that he didn’t know if he said he wanted to be there and he wasn’t there it would set what kind of example. He added that this was not the kind of person he was. That would be really hard for him if he was at home right now, and everybody else was out there at practice. That’s just not who he was as a person.”
He answered there was when asked if there was validity to the report of a five-year extension.
He is convinced about Rudolph said he trusts the work by Murphy and Rob Brzezinski- Vikings Executive Vice President of Football Operations.
