Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph won't take a pay cut to stay in Minnesota. "No I won't, I am too young for that," the 29-year-old told the Star-Tribune in a story published Thursday.

Rudolph, the subject of trade rumours and reported broken-down negotiations over a contract extension, said he is hoping to find a way to stay with the team. "I am really excited about where this offence is headed, under the guidance of (offensive coordinator) Kevin Stefanski, with the influence of (assistant head coach) Gary Kubiak. I am extremely excited about our offensive staff," Rudolph said. "I think we have the best offensive staff in football and they're going to put our guys in great situations to be successful."

Rudolph has one year left on his contact and is due $7.5 million in 2019. The Vikings have about $1.13 million left in cap space, according to Over The Cap. Minnesota drafted Alabama tight end Irv Smith in the second round as a potential replacement.

Rudolph, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, has spent his eight-year NFL career in Minnesota, catching 386 passes for 3,787 yards and 41 touchdowns. He had 64 receptions for 634 yards and four scores last season.
