Here's a look at Rudolph's statement:

As of Tuesday morning, the Vikings announced that Rudolph and the team have agreed to terms on a contract extension as mini camp began. Rudolph had entered the final year of his previous contract with a $7.25 million non-guaranteed salary, putting him at risk for being released after Alabama tight end Irv Smith Jr. was drafted in the second round.

Rudolph was drafted by the Vikings in the second round, 43rd overall of the 2011 NFL Draft. He was selected for the Pro Bowl following the 2012 NFL season. In 2018, he had 64 receptions for 634 yards and scored 4 touchdowns.
