Vikings, Kyle Rudolph agree to terms on 4-year deal


Kyle Rudolph is staying in Minnesota for the long-haul.

On the eve of training camp, the Vikings and the tight end have agreed to terms on a four-year, $36 million extension, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per a source informed.

"I am honored beyond words to say that my home, our home will always be in Minnesota," the 29-year-old posted on Twitter.

Rudolph confirmed weeks ago that the team offered him a five-year contract extension and that both sides were working to resolve the situation.

The contract extension keeps him in Minnesota to help tutor Irv Smith, who the team drafted in the second round of the draft.
