If the Minnesota Vikings are willing to trade Kyle Rudolph, the Los Angeles Rams should explore the possibility of acquiring the tight end.
Free agency and the draft may be wrapped up for the most part when it comes to the Los Angeles Rams, but this doesn’t necessarily mean the team could be done making offseason moves.
In fact, if there’s anything the Rams have taught fans over the last two seasons, it would be the team should never be ruled out of potential deals if it puts them in better position to make a run at the Super Bowl, no matter how crazy it sounds.
With this in mind, one can’t help but wonder if Los Angeles would explore the possibility of acquiring Kyle Rudolph from the Minnesota Vikings if the team were to make him available through a trade.
Entering the final year of his contract, there was hope for Rudolph that Minnesota would reward him with an extension at some point this offseason, but with talks reportedly breaking down between the two parties, now the possibility of trade rumors are beginning to swirl.
Obviously, just because talks for a potential extension broke down doesn’t necessarily guarantee the Vikings will end up trading the tight end, but also with plenty of teams in need of help at the tight end position, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them explore the possibility.
Plenty of teams would love Rudolph’s services at tight end since his pass-catching skills arguably rank near the top of the league, which is why this could make for an intriguing option by the Rams if the interest were there.
Remember some of the rumors surrounding the possibility of Los Angeles exploring trade options this offseason with Tyler Higbee?
Sure, these talks emerged over the Rams feeling confident in still feeling set at the position thanks to players like Gerald Everett, but also replacing Higbee with a veteran in Rudolph could work wonders for the offense.
Sean McVay has a history of bringing out the best in tight ends, and while the talent is already there for Rudolph, this could be a move that helps his career in a big way as well.
But as mentioned before, this is all talk for now, and the Rams haven’t even hinted at the possibility of acquiring Rudolph if the Vikings made him available.
Still, isn’t it fun to explore possibilities surrounding the NFC champions, whether it happens to be a long shot or not with Rudolph?
