Rudolph joined Big Blue after going undrafted in 2017. He underwent a successful career at the collegiate level, earning second-team All-ACC honors with Florida State in 2016.
During that 2016 season, Rudolph notched 56 receptions for 840 yards and seven touchdowns through 13 games.
While with the Giants, Rudolph appeared in seven games during the disastrous three-win 2017 campaign and caught just eight balls for 101 yards. He hasn’t appeared in an NFL regular-season game since that season — he spent time with the Dolphins practice squad in 2018 before taking his talents to the CFL.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL released him Wednesday upon his arrest.
