Rudolph posted a statement on social media Monday night that read in part, "I am honored beyond words to say that my home, our home, will always be...in Minnesota!"

In 112 games over eight seasons with the Vikings, Rudolph has totaled 41 career receiving touchdowns, the most by a tight end and fifth most all-time in franchise history, in addition to 386 career receptions and 3,787 career receiving yards. 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 NFL tight ends.

He's also been deeply engrained in the community, becoming a two-time nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award and opening Kyle Rudolph's End Zone at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

Rudolph was originally selected in the second round (43rd overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Vikings.
