The New York Giants have decided to release tight end Kyle Rudolph to save over $5 million for the 2022 season. Rudolph posted on social media thanking the organization for his time there.
.@Giants Fans thanks for taking me and my family in this past year! Certainly not the year any of us expected, but a year we will never forget.. We're appreciative of the Mara and Tisch Families for giving us the opportunity to be a Giant. pic.twitter.com/HSZzGGTXRI

Rudolph, 32, is now free to sign with any team and does not have to wait until the league year starts because he was released.
The Giants will create more cap space for next year with the move, as they rank near the bottom of the league in projected cap space for 2022.
After spending 10 seasons in Minnesota, Rudolph signed with the Giants last offseason. He has 479 receptions for 4,745 yards and 49 touchdowns in his career. This past season in New York, Rudolph caught 26 passes for 257 yards and one touchdown.
