The Minnesota Vikings' decision to trade for Sam Bradford is drawing rave reviews after just three games.
During his short tenure with the Vikings, Bradford has developed something special on the field with Kyle Rudolph, and it's been paying off for the Vikings offense.
At 6-foot-6, Rudolph isn't hard to spot, and his combination of size and soft hands is one of the reasons Bradford thinks the two have just "kind of clicked."
"Obviously it really helps anytime you have a target like Kyle," Bradford told reporters Wednesday. "He has a big catch radius. I think he just does a really good job of using his body to shield defenders."
Through the three games Bradford has started, Rudolph has 15 catches for 156 yards. The two have seemed to develop a special rapport in the red zone, connecting for a touchdown pass in each of Bradford's three starts.
"If we can get him matched up against a corner or a safety he's usually a little bit bigger than those guys," said Bradford. "He's really good at being physical."
