What are some of the most impressive statistics about the Minnesota Vikings tight end?
Kyle Rudolph is the longest-tenured Minnesota Vikings player heading into the 2020 season (unless Everson Griffen opts to return). That’s given him plenty of time to accumulate meaningful statistics en route to the 77 wins the Vikings have tallied since his entry into the NFL.
Because he’s called a ‘Redzone Reindeer,’ his most impressive stats pertain to touchdowns. For instance (yes, this is a teaser), Rudolph has scored more touchdowns (32) than any other Minnesota Viking during The Zimmer Era. Diggs and Thielen are close behind, but longevity gives Rudolph the edge for this particular statistic.
Another nod to that longevity and durability is the cool factoid that, along with Danielle Hunter, Kyle Rudolph is the only Viking to play every game at U.S. Bank Stadium since its inauguration in September 2016. All the rest have either joined the squad afterward–or encountered injury.
What else can be said for the man that was born on the same day that the Berlin Wall fell? Let’s find out.
