The Minnesota Vikings and edge rusher Danielle Hunter agreed to terms on a one-year, $20-million contract, sources told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport.
Hunter’s deal includes $17 million guaranteed and a no-tag clause, Pelissero reports.
The team was reportedly willing to entertain trade offers for the pass-rusher before signing him to the deal. Hunter skipped mandatory minicamp earlier in the offseason, unhappy with his previous contract, which was set to pay him $4.9 million.
Hunter’s new pact ties him with the Buffalo Bills’ Von Miller as the league’s eighth-highest-paid edge defender by average annual value, according to Over the Cap.
The 28-year-old had 10.5 sacks, 12 tackles for less, and 22 QB hits in 2022 en route to a third Pro Bowl selection. Hunter has accumulated 379 total tackles, 71 sacks, 85 tackles for loss, and seven forced fumbles since entering the league as a third-round pick in the 2015 draft.
