Kyle Rudolph Hangs Up His Cleats

Monday, September 4, 11:06 AM

Two-time Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Rudolph announced on Monday that he will officially retire as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Rudolph makes the decision after playing 12 seasons in the NFL. Originally a second-round pick of the Vikings in 2011 out of Notre Dame, Rudolph played the first 10 seasons of his career in Minnesota before joining the New York Giants in 2021 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year. He'll finish with 482 career receptions on 709 targets for 4,773 yards and 50 touchdowns in 165 games (145 starts). In just nine games (zero starts) for Tampa in 2022, the 33-year-old had three catches for 28 yards and one touchdown. Both of his Pro Bowl campaigns came in Minnesota -- in 2012 and in 2017.

Chigoziem Okonkwo Catches Two Passes In Win

Sunday, January 7, 4:38 PM

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo caught two of his three targets for 36 yards in the season-ending win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The second-year pass-catcher underwhelmed in fantasy football this year, finishing with 54 receptions for 528 yards and one score. If he remains the starting tight end next season, he'll still have some fantasy football intrigue. If quarterback Will Levis takes a leap in year two, all of the Titans pass-catchers could receive value boosts.
