  • Buccaneers' Kyle Rudolph: Inactive for Week 1

    Rudolph is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

    With Rudolph not in uniform for the Buccaneers' season opener, Cameron Brate, Cade Otton and Ko Kieft are in line to handle the team's Week 1 tight-end duties.

  • Buccaneers' Kyle Rudolph: Makes preseason debut Saturday

    Rudolph brought in one of three targets for three yards in the Buccaneers' 13-3 preseason loss to the Titans on Saturday night.

    The veteran tight end got his feet wet in the Buccaneers offense for the first time and logged targets on both the second and fourth drives of the game. Rudolph and Cameron Brate likely will serve as co-No.1 options at tight end to open the season, but rookie Cade Otton potentially could eat into both of their snap counts as the campaign unfolds.

  • Buccaneers' Kyle Rudolph: Lands with Bucs

    Rudolph agreed to a one-year deal with Tampa Bay on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The Buccaneers lost O.J. Howard and Rob Gronkowski -- at least for the time being -- from their tight end depth chart this offseason. While they added Cade Otton and Ko Kieft in the 2022 NFL Draft, the pickup of Rudolph will give the team another veteran option to pair with Cameron Brate. Even with the benefit of having Tom Brady as his quarterback, Rudolph isn't likely to return to his peak production from his time with the Vikings, though he still proved to be a decent threat near the goal line by accruing nine red-zone targets with the Giants in 2021.

  • Kyle Rudolph: Drawing free agent interest

    Rudolph has received interest in free agency from various teams, including Tampa Bay and his former team Minnesota, and a deal could come together sometime before training camp in late July, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Rudolph has been on the free agent market since his release from the Giants in March. The two-time Pro Bowler played just one season in New York, collecting 26 catches on 39 targets for 257 yards and one touchdown over 16 games in 2021. Though Rudolph is beyond his prime production years, he could still serve as a reliable veteran for teams in need of tight end depth.

  • Giants' Kyle Rudolph: Bids adieu to New York

    Rudolph posted Wednesday an apparent farewell message to Giants fans on his personal Twitter account, signaling that he's likely been informed of his release.

    The Giants will likely make his release official in the days to come. If the veteran tight end has in fact been cut by New York, the transaction would free up roughly $5 million in cap space, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Meanwhile, Evan Engram is set to become a free agent at the start of the new league year March 16, so the Giants could enter 2022 without their top two options on the tight end depth chart from this past season.

  • Kyle Rudolph: Officially cut by Giants

    The Giants cut Rudolph on Wednesday.

    According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the Giants' release of Rudolph frees up $5 million in additional cap space as the new league year approaches. In what proved to be his lone season with the Giants, Rudolph made 16 appearances and hauled in 26 of 39 targets for 257 yards and one touchdown. The 32-year-old -- who has no plans to retire, per Adam Schefter of ESPN -- will likely generate interest from teams in search of experienced depth at tight end.
