Former Notre Dame student-athlete Kyle Rudolph signed a $36.5 million contract extension yesterday with the Minnesota Vikings. See the video interview below.
The amount just might be the biggest ever signed by a former Notre Dame football player in the NFL. Here's the top three that I've tracked down...
- Kyle Rudolph: $36.5 million
- Golden Tate: $31 million
- Justin Tuck: $30 million

Drove by the Rockne Gate at Notre Dame Stadium -- this afternoon -- and took this photo. I could see the diaganol stripes in the endzone are in place -- unfortunately, this photo does not do it justice.
From outside the tunnel gate -- the field looks awesome!
Here's the latest photo from inside Notre Dame Stadium -- much better!

A number of Notre Dame football players suited up for the first day of NFL Training Camp with their respective teams today. Here's what I could find on a number of former Fighting Irish football stars -- as you'll see, an alarming number of them were placed on the NFL's "PUP List."
That Notre Dame degree is so, so important!
