Minnesota Vikings: TE Kyle Rudolph

If we are stealing players from division rivals, why not got after the player that had the franchise quarterback getting all the feels, Justin Jefferson.

But, Jefferson has not played a down yet and despite all his potential, I want a proven commodity.

There is no more proven commodity than Kyle Rudolph. Yes, Harrison Smith is the perineal Pro Bowler and Adam Thielen would give the receiving corps more firepower, but Darnell Savage and Adrian Amos are a very good duo and we already stole a receiver from a rival.

The Vikings had more turnover on their roster than any other team in the division. I would have liked to give the defense a nickel cornerback but Trae Waynes left Minnesota for Cincinnati.

So instead, I give Rodgers a dependable man in the middle who isn’t afraid to block.

The Packers haven’t had much luck going with over-30 tight ends but Kyle Rudolph isn’t Martellus Bennett or Jimmy Graham.

Rudolph’s game isn’t based on speed and he won’t quit when the going gets tough. His production dropped off a bit in 2019 but Rudolph can still make a contribution to a team in need of players at the tight end position.

He would also pair with Marcedes Lewis to give the Packers a pair of role models for others in the tight end room.

The addition of these three players would weaken division rivals while also strengthening the Packers. Each player would bring something unique not already on the roster.

Smith could add to the defense while Golladay and Rudolph would help the offense reach its potential.
