The Minnesota Vikings released a video paying tribute to Kyle Rudolph on Wednesday, one day after Rudolph was released from the team.
The video, which appeared on the Vikings' social media channels, began with the team selecting Rudolph with the 43rd overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
It transitioned into Rudolph's highlights from his ten years in Minnesota including his MVP performance in the 2013 Pro Bowl, a "Hail Mary" reception against the Detroit Lions in 2018 and a game-winning touchdown grab in a playoff game against the New Orleans Saints in 2020.
The video also showed Rudolph's charity work, which included the opening of Kyle Rudolph's End Zone at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. His work helped create a campaign during the 2018 season for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
Rudolph leaves Minnesota ranking fifth in franchise history with 453 receptions and 48 touchdown receptions and 10th with 4,488 receiving yards.
