Would you guys trade for Kyle Rudolph? in Talk About the Falcons Posted Thursday at 06:34 AM On 5/14/2019 at 7:46 PM, k-train said: Thank you. The dude was set to get paid $7.5M & speculation is that he wants a new/larger deal... which is exactly why he's available for trade. Because the Vikes know he's not worth more than that, and took Irv Smith in the draft as a much cheaper option who should be able to do everything Rudolph could... thus making Rudolph completely expendable to them. I mean, we are talking about a TE who:- will be 30 this year - has only had 1 season in 8 where he was above 640 yards - has never had more than 840 yards in a season - has never had double-digit TDs - has only had more than 5 TDs in a season 3 times in 8 years - has only caught more than 67% of his targets 3 times in 8 years He's an ok player, but he's not worth anywhere near what he's set to be paid... and not worth trading for, especially considering he's gonna get cut anyhow in all likelihood. Not only that but if he signs for 6-7 mil next year, the Vikes would potentially get a 5th/6th round compensatory pick I believe. Trading him for the same would essentially be giving him away for free and I doubt they would do it for less than a 4th plus something.
