Minnesota Viking Kyle Rudolph ‘Goes Pro’ in Hockey from acowsay on Vimeo.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is doing all that he can get fans to vote him into the Pro Bowl.

He teamed up with Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker to test out his skills, or as he's calling it, "Go Pro" in hockey.

Rudolph, the 2013 Pro Bowl MVP, has 5 touchdown receptions this season. That's tied with Antonio Gates, Cameron Brate and Delanie Walker for the most by a tied end. But Rudolph ranks much lower in receptions and yards.

Check out how stiff the tight end competition for the Pro Bowl is.

  • Greg Olsen: 50 catches, 712 yards, 3 TD
  • Dennis Pitta: 46 catches, 375 yards, 0 TD
