Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph might find himself on the trade block. Contract extension talks between the 29-year-old and the team ended this morning without a new deal.
According to Ian Rapoport, there are teams showing interest in the veteran tight end. He is due $7.5 million in 2019 and is coming off of a solid season.
The #Vikings had held active extension talks with veteran TE Kyle Rudolph, but those broke off this morning, sources say. With Minnesota drafting TE Irv Smith and Rudolph due $7.5M, this development could lead to a trade elsewhere. There is interest around the NFL.

Rapoport doesn’t list any of the teams showing interest, but you have to believe the Patriots, with the retirement of Gronk, would reach out to see what kind of compensation Minnesota is looking for.
Nobody is Gronk, but in the Patriots offense you have to believe Rudolph would put up Gronk-like numbers.
