Lands with Bucs Rudolph agreed to a one-year deal with Tampa Bay on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impact The Buccaneers lost O.J. Howard and Rob Gronkowski -- at least for the time being -- from their tight end depth chart this offseason. While they added Cade Otton and Ko Kieft in the 2022 NFL Draft, the pickup of Rudolph will give the team another veteran option to pair with Cameron Brate. Even with the benefit of having Tom Brady as his quarterback, Rudolph isn't likely to return to his peak production from his time with the Vikings, though he still proved to be a decent threat near the goal line by accruing nine red-zone targets with the Giants in 2021.
