Vikings Release Kyle Rudolph

Mar 2, 2021 11:18 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have released Kyle Rudolph after 10 seasons with the team.

Rudolph was set to count at $5.1 million against Minnesota's cap for the 2021 season.

Rudolph was a second round pick in 2011.

"I got so lucky, because -- I didn't just get drafted by some team who 'had a need at tight end,' Rudolph wrote. "I didn't just get drafted as, like, the nameless, faceless '#1 tight end on the board.' I got drafted by a team that was all set in terms of need ... but then drafted me anyway.

"I'll always remember that: how the Minnesota Vikings wanted me -- and wanted to bet on my potential."

Texans Release J.J. Watt Upon His Request

Feb 12, 2021 11:32 AM

The Houston Texans have granted the request of J.J. Watt to release him.

"I have sat down with the McNair family and I have asked them for my release and we have mutually agreed to part ways at this time," Watt said in a video posted to Twitter. "I came here 10 years ago as a kid from Wisconsin who'd never really been to Texas before. And now I can't imagine my life without Texas in it. The way that you guys have treated me, besides draft night. I mean, you guys booed me on draft night. But every day after that, you treated me like family. And I truly feel like you're my family.

"... I'm excited and looking forward to a new opportunity, and I've been working extremely hard. But at the same time, it is always tough to move on. And I just want you guys to know that I love you. I appreciate you. I appreciate the McNair family for drafting me and giving me my first opportunity in the NFL."

The Washington Football Team has released Dwayne Haskins.

"This afternoon I met with Dwayne and informed him that we would be releasing him. I told him that I believe it benefits both parties that we go our separate ways.

Haskins was the 15th overall pick in 2019 and was benched in the fourth quarter after two interceptions and a lost fumble.
