Former NFL and Florida State wide receiver Travis Rudolph has been arrested on charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder, according to the Sun Sentinel.

His arrest comes after the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office responded to a double shooting down in Florida. That shooting occurred sometime after midnight early on Wednesday morning. Two victims had apparently suffered gunshot wounds. One later died from the injuries.

Rudolph is currently being held without bail.

Rudolph, 25, played for the Seminoles from 2014-16. He had a successful career in Tallahassee, hauling in 153 catches for 2,311 yards and 18 scores. He then signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent.

He spent parts of the 2017 and 2018 seasons with the Giants before briefly landing on the practice squad for the Miami Dolphins. Rudolph last played with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL in 2020, and is currently on the roster.

  1. I mean not really tho.. unless you’re just throwing out blanket generalizations… Dude actually went viral several years back for a good deed he did when FSU’s football team visited a middle school in FL. Rudolph sat down and ate lunch with an autistic kid who was sitting at a table by himself. Wasn’t planned, just genuine human compassion. Buddy didn’t have a track record.

    • I think you’re missing the point lol.. “usual suspects very predictable” was what I was referring to.. All signs point to this not being predictable given his history and lack of criminal record. It’s not fuggin PacMan Jones we’re talking about lol..
