Dear Kyle Rudolph…

Tear duct check time, thanks to this video released this morning by the Minnesota Vikings in honor of tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Rudolph was named today as the Vikings’ nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.

“Both Jordan and I are extremely passionate about kids and anything that we can do to help kids be just that,” Rudolph said in a press release. “They’re not in the circumstances they’re in for a reason. These diseases and cancers that they’re fighting don’t discriminate. They didn’t choose to have their childhood taken away from them…I think the biggest thing that we try to do is provide these kids with an opportunity to be kids.”
