MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed tight end Kyle Rudolph to a five-year contract extension.
The Vikings announced the deal Sunday night. The deal, which was first reported by Fox Sports, is worth $36.5 million with just $20 million guaranteed. Incentives can push the deal to $40 million.
Rudolph missed eight games because of a broken left foot last season. He caught 30 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns last year, but was still named to the Pro Bowl and earned MVP honors in the game.
Rudolph was entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the Vikings know what he can do when he is healthy. In 2012, he caught nine touchdown passes and provided the team with a big, speedy threat over the middle.
