Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants and tight end Kyle Rudolph have come to an agreement and Rudolph has signed his contract.

As Mike Garafolo reported Monday, while the two sides had agreed on a contract, the Giants had concerns regarding the lisfranc injury which cost him the last quarter of the 2020 season.

Garafolo reported that the Giants’ medical staff is concerned that Rudolph will need foot surgery following the injury. The two sides seem to have come to an agreement and have ironed out the wrinkles in a medical plan for the 10-year veteran.

The 2-year, $12 million deal ($4.5 million guaranteed) between the Giants and Rudolph was first announced six days ago, on the second day of free agency, but hadn’t been signed as the two sides needed to come to grips with Rudolph’s medical status. How the Giants’ now-crowded tight end position shakes out remains to be seen, but its newest addition is finally in the fold.
