Kyle Rudolph calls out media member for selling game-winning TD gloves on eBay
Kyle Rudolph is not pleased with some shady behavior from a media member.
The Minnesota Vikings tight end took to Twitter on Wednesday to react to his game-used gloves being sold on eBay. Rudolph said that a reporter asked for the gloves in the locker room postgame claiming that it was for a charity benefit. Unfortunately, the gloves went up for sale three days later in a development Rudolph called “disappointing.”
I saw this.. it’s disappointing. A member of the media in the locker room after the game asked if he could have my gloves for a charity benefit, so I said of course and I will even sign them for you! Well he got me, sold on eBay 3 days later.. https://t.co/JCTO0OWM5n

The gloves were worn by Rudolph during last weekend’s Wild Card win over New Orleans in which he caught the game-winning touchdown in overtime.
We saw a similar incident a couple of years ago, and this may renew calls for the NFL to tighten security in the locker room, especially for the playoffs.
