Vikings TE Rudolph: 'These guys expect to see me out here'
FILE - In this Friday, Aug. 24, 2018 file photo, Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (82) runs from Seattle Seahawks defensive back Tedric Thompson after making a reception during the first half of an NFL preseason football game in Minneapolis. Just because the Minnesota Vikings drafted a tight end, Irv Smith Jr., in the second round doesn't mean they're going to cut or trade veteran Kyle Rudolph. There's room for both of them in the offense, as long as the Vikings can make space under the salary cap. (AP Photo/Bruce Kluckhohn, File)
