Now that the Minnesota Vikings are 2-0 under head coach Mike Zimmer, I’m slowly but surely becoming a bigger and bigger fan of Zimmer.

Expect Kyle Rudolph to be a Pro-Bowler this year

Since Norv Turner became the head coach of the San Diego Chargers in 2007, the top tight end in Norv Turner’s system has never scored less than seven touchdowns and has fallen short of 700 yards only once.

Why Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph got Paid

Earlier this week the Vikings announced they signed TE Kyle Rudolph to a five-year contract extension worth $36.5 million. This now makes him the 5th highest paid tight end in the NFL. He is now only behind Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Jason Witten, and Vernon Davis. And he is now just above Antonio Gates.

Buy or Sell: Kyle Rudolph

Kyle Rudolph missed half of the 2013 season with a broken foot. During the two seasons previous, he’s shown signs of stardom, but also has disappeared for significant chunks of time.

The team just signed him to a lucrative...
