When Kyle Rudolph missed the final four games of last season, Conklin posted receiving lines of 5-40 (5), 3-57-1 (4), 4-31 (6) and 3-40 (6). He was the No. 15 TE in that span. With Irv Smith (meniscus) out for most of the year, Conklin could see that sort of usage. The Vikings did trade for Chris Herndon, but it will probably take him a while to get up to speed.
