Making his first Pro Bowl appearance in his young NFL career, former Irish tight end Kyle Rudolph took home MVP honors on Sunday night in Hawaii.
Rudolph caught five passes for 122 yards and a touchdown in the NFC’s 62-35 win. Not only did the Cincinnati, Ohio native take home a shiny trophy, but he also received the keys to a brand new car.
Not bad for a guy that was named as a replacement for Tony Gonzalez, just last week.
