Kyle Rudolph Contract Extension

Kyle RudolphIt’s important that we note the contract he had before. For those who don’t spend a lot of time on Spotrac, he had a $7.625m cap hit with zero dead cap (money still counting towards the team’s cap for the year). Virtually any time a player has zero dead cap in a year, he represents a cut candidate, or what some people may call a “cap casualty”. This fact was especially exacerbated by the fact that the Vikings were up against the salary cap for the year with very little room for flexibility. It’s not uncommon for teams to look at having $7.625m more cap space as being more valuable than a player. In this case, the Vikings found a way to have their cake and eat it too, while also giving Rudolph some short term guarantees...........
