TE Kyle Rudolph Released by Vikings

By Adam Roberts – 3/3/2021

A face of the Minnesota Vikings’ offense for the last decade is wearing purple no more.

The Vikings have officially parted ways with veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph. The 31-year-old has been released after 10 seasons in Minneapolis.

The move saves the Vikings more than five-million dollars in cap space in a year when the cap is being heavily affected by the ongoing pandemic. Rudolph was a second-round pick by Minnesota in 2011.
