Another Minnesota Viking is headed to Honolulu.
The team announced on Tuesday afternoon that tight end Kyle Rudolph has been selected to the game as an alternate, replacing Atlanta's Tony Gonzalez.
Rudolph had 53 catches for 493 yards and a team-high nine receiving touchdowns in his second season out of Notre Dame.
The Vikings hadn't sent a tight end to the NFL's annual all-star game since Byron Chamberlain in 2001.
The game will be played on Sunday at Aloha Stadium.
