After news broke Monday night that the Vikings had agreed to a 4-year contract extension with TE Kyle Rudolph, the veteran tight end released a statement to the fans celebrating the announcement of the deal.
Just under a decade ago, I received a phone call that would change my life. On that day, all I knew is that I would be playing in the NFL, realizing my childhood dream. What I didn’t know was the role that the state of Minnesota would play in my life. Marrying my wife and established our home…in Minnesota. Experiencing the birth of my 3 beautiful children…in Minnesota. Starting a journey to better the lived of children dealing with a disease that doesn’t discriminate…in Minnesota. Giving everything that I can possibly give; professionals and personally, to the greatest sports franchise and it’s fans…in Minnesota. And I am honored beyond words to say that my home, our home, will always be…in Minnesota! #UnfinishedBusiness
