Here is the Tight End's official announcement that came via X:

Rudolph was a standout during his tenure in Minnesota, earning Pro Bowl nods in both 2012 and 2017.

He departed Minnesota following the 2020 season, and played with the Giants in 2021 before concluding his career in Tampa Bay last season.

Rudolph retires trailing only Steve Jordan for the most receiving yards by a Tight End in franchise history, and his 48 receiving touchdowns are a team record for the position.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
