Kyle Rudolph to Sign Four-Year, $36 Million Extension with Vikings

Honored beyond words’ Kyle Rudolph announces he’s staying in Minnesota

Honored beyond words’ Kyle Rudolph announces he’s staying in Minnesota

The Patriots have consistently, and seamlessly, replaced stars since the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady dynasty began, but replacing Rob Gronkowski may be the team's toughest task yet. If anyone was going to make a trade for Rudolph, the Patriots certainly seemed as good of an option as any, but it wasn't meant to be, as Rudolph and the Vikings reportedly agreed to a four-year contract extension late Monday night. At one point, New England even showed interest in Rudolph, according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer. The Vikings did that with Rudolph, 29, saving about $4 million under the cap.

The Minnesota Vikings appeared to have a brewing conundrum on their hands when the tight end's uncertain contract situation intersected with them selecting tight end Irv Smith Jr.in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native has started 65 consecutive games entering the 2019 season, a franchise record among tight ends and the longest active streak among National Football League tight ends.

The analysis focused on data on sleep, light exposure and weight gain during the study, but not on breast cancer. But new research points to another potential cause: how much light you're exposed to at night.

Barring an unforeseen - and unlikely - move for an impact tight end, the defending Super Bowl champions will enter next season with Matt LaCosse (26 career receptions) as its starter. He's played in all 16 games for the past four seasons.

New England will have to do what it's famous for: making the most out of a no-name group of castoffs. The other options include Stephen Anderson, Ryan Izzo and Andrew Beck.
