Kyle Rudolph Named To First Pro Bowl

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It might be a little late in the game, but I'm sure that Minnesota Vikings' tight end Kyle Rudolph doesn't mind.

On Tuesday, the Vikings' second-year tight end was named to his first Pro Bowl. Rudolph will be making the trip because Atlanta Falcons' tight end Tony Gonzalez has withdrawn from the game due to injury.

Rudolph had career highs in receptions (53) and receiving yardage (493), and was second in the National Football League among tight ends with nine touchdown catches. Those nine touchdown catches also represent the second-highest total for a Vikings' tight end in a season, behind the 11 that Visanthe Shiancoe had in 2009.

With Rudolph's addition, the Vikings now have six players going to Honolulu. Rudolph joins Adrian Peterson, Jerome Felton, Chad Greenway, Jared Allen, and Blair Walsh on the NFC roster.

Congratulations to Kyle Rudolph and the rest of the Vikings' Pro Bowl contingent on their accomplishments this season.
