The Vikings continue training camp practices today at Minnesota State University in Mankato. The team will hold a walk-through in the morning and will practice with full pads for the second time in the evening. The Vikings open preseason play August 8th against the Oakland Raiders.
Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph will be wearing purple and white for a long time. The team announced a contract extension with Rudolph on Sunday. Fox Sports reports the extension is for five years and worth 36.5-million-dollars. Rudolph had 30 catches for three touchdowns in only eight games last year. He was drafted in the second round by Minnesota in 2011.
