Ex-Giant Travis Rudolph charged with first-degree murder

Mike Florio and Chris Simms agree that Kyle Shanahan will call Nick Saban if he really has his eyes set on quarterback Mac Jones, despite him not speaking to Saban at Alabama's Pro Day.

Former Giants wide receiver Travis Rudolph has been charged with first-degree murder.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced that Rudolph was arrested after a double shooting shortly after midnight in Lake Park, Florida. One of the victims was dead at the scene and the other was taken to a nearby hospital.

Rudolph faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

The 25-year-old Rudolph may be best known for a viral photo of him taken in 2016, when he was a wide receiver at Florida State and visited a local elementary school, where he sat in the cafeteria with a young boy with autism.

Rudolph signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and made the roster, catching eight passes for 101 yards as a rookie. He later signed with the Dolphins’ practice squad but suffered a torn ACL at his first practice and never played in the NFL again.
