Kyle Rudolph is not yet prepared to leave Minnesota.

Rudolph agreed to a four-year, $36-million extension with the Vikings, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The contract contains $9.25 million fully guaranteed and $16.25 million guaranteed against injury, a source told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

The deal was officially announced Tuesday.

In the midst of an impasse with the Vikings in contract discussions, the tight end provided an update on Twitter on Monday night, writing that "our home will always be ... in Minnesota!"

He then confirmed via text to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he has a new deal with the Vikings.

Rudolph said in May that he was bracing for a possible trade from Minnesota and said there was "no way" he would accept a pay cut to stay with the team.

The 29-year-old was scheduled to enter the final year of a five-year extension he signed with the Vikings in 2014 and would have been paid $7.275 million in 2019.
