Report: Buccaneers Named as Potential Destination for Free Agent Tight End


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ have been named as one of the teams interested in signing free agent tight end Kyle Rudolph. The report comes from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Fowler also states a return to the Minnesota Vikings isn’t out of the question for Rudolph. The Buccaneers need a veteran tight end to book-end with Cameron Brate. Rudolph fits this bill and would provide a security blanket during the development of the two recently drafted rookie tight ends.

Kyle Rudolph was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 43rd overall pick in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Rudolph signed with the New York Giants on March 24, 2021. On December 21, 2021, the New York Giants restructured Rudolph’s contract to create cap space. He was released on March 2, 2022 in an effort to create cap space.

The 11-year veteran out of Notre Dame should have a destination picked out by the start of training camp.
