In 2018, Rudolph finished with the second-highest single-season marks of his career for catches (64) and yards (634). Most of his production last year came with John DeFilippo calling the plays for the Vikings’ offense.

This year, DeFilippo is running the offense for the Jaguars, who also happen to be in need of a better tight end option for next season. Could a reunion between the coach and Rudolph happen in the near future?

The two most experienced tight ends on Jacksonville’s current roster are Geoff Swaim and James O’Shaughnessy. Combined, Swaim and O’Shaughnessy have caught a total of two touchdowns in their NFL careers.

Rudolph reached the end zone twice in one game last season.

The Jaguars also have a new quarterback for 2019 in Nick Foles who has thrown around 30 percent of his career touchdowns to tight ends. Jacksonville adding Rudolph to their roster would give Foles a guy at the tight end position that he could actually rely on.

With not many offensive weapons outside of running back Leonard Fournette, trading for Rudolph is certainly something the Jaguars should be currently considering.
