Vikings, DE Hunter Agree To Contract Extension

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter is sticking around for a while.

On Wednesday, the Vikings announced that Hunter, 23, has agreed to terms on a contract extension with the club.

Details of the contract were not made available by the Vikings, but according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, the deal is a five-year contract worth about $14 million per season.

Danielle Hunter is still only 23 years old. My understanding is it’s a 5-year extension that will pay Hunter around $14M per year — top-10 defensive end money. #Vikings
