Kyle Rudolph has made it clear that he won’t accept a pay cut from the Vikings. That doesn’t make him greedy, or disloyal, or a selfish teammate.

It simply means he’s looking out for himself in a ruthless business that offers little in the way of security.

Rudolph signed a contract to do a job that comes with dangerous risks to his brain and body in a profession that treats someone age 30 as a senior citizen.
