Travis Rudolph arrested for murder

BigBlueBuff : 4/7/2021 12:12 pm
Shocking story breaking right now on the FSU fan message boards. Thought it pertinent because he is a former Giant.

Tweet about Rudolph - ( New Window )
Wow

Remember he sat with that kid at lunch and everyone loved him?
I can't be the only one who saw Rudolph

I was just thinking that. What a shame...clearly he has(had) a good heart, makes you wonder what went wrong. Very sad.

Hopefully it's a false report or a case of mistaken identity.
Well, could be a case of self defense

That went wrong? Going to go the usual cautious route until we get more details on this one.
Was he one of those guys

who really flashed in the preseason but never really made it? I see he played a couple of games. I think I was surprised when he was cut...

Yikes.
A bit more on this:

His father was murdered when he was in high school. There is some speculation that this might have been related, but it's still just speculation.

and attempted FDM. That is usually not the kind of charge on a self-defense thing, but who knows?
WOW

I was wondering what had become of him JUST the other day. On the field, seemed a bit of a plodder - not real fast, not a great route runner, OK size, OK hands...just good enough to get on a team until someone better came along.
Damn....i was rooting for him to make the Giants

He seemed like a good, hard working kid....and yes I remember that story about him friending a kid with autism....very sad if true.

Rudolph's father was not murdered, unless I missed some follow up. He was working in a strip club when a gun accidentally discharged, going through a wall and killiing him.

You're right, my mistake. Just repeating what others have said, so forgive the hearsay. It also happened a year AFTER sitting with the kid at lunch, another mistake.
NEW: Club employee charged in death of FSU star Travis Rudolph’s father - ( New Window )
meh

Im not going to judge him before more info comes out. If he pulled a gun and smoked two fools they could have easily been trying to roll him and Travis saved his own life. Robberies are way up and unfortunely you will be charged like this even if it was justified.
Very Sad

I pray it isn’t true.
The details coming out would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic.

I thought it was a drug deal gone bad but it actually started as a fight with his girlfriend from earlier in the day.

Rudolph is an idiot.
