Tight end Kyle Rudolph signs contract with Giants, set to have foot surgery

After what he called an "interesting" and "unexpected" 24 hours that saw his signing with the Giants delayed because of concerns the team found during his physical on Tuesday, Kyle Rudolph finally signed his two-year deal with the team. One of his first acts as a Giant? Surgery.

The veteran tight end said he will undergo a procedure to correct an injury to his foot "as soon as possible" and he expects to be on the field with his new team for training camp. The injury, which sidelined Rudolph for four games last season with the Vikings, was thought to have healed with time but his standard examination prior to inking the contract showed that it had not.
