Comfort Level is High at Vikes Camp
August 05, 2012 12:12 AM
The Minnesota Vikings have many questions coming into training camp.
From roster spots, to seeing if their offense can hold up throughout the gruling NFL season. Tight-End Kyle Rudolph says this training camp already feels more comfortable than last season, having better communication is key, but he knows to fight for that starting spot, he still has some work to do.
"Having an entire season, having an offseason and now coming in here the first couple days of training camp, really feels like the comfort level is a lot higher," said Rudolph, "The biggest thing for me is just being able to be a complete tight end. It's taking the run game, taking the pass game and just putting it all together to be able to be on the field at all downs."
With Visanthe Shiancoe gone and now playing for the New England Patriots, Rudolph looks to be the opening starter for the tight end position this year.
