This is notable, as there have been rumblings that Hunter is discontented with his current contract and was considering skipping minicamp in an effort to secure a new deal.
Now that he’s reporting, however, Jonathan Jones says to keep an eye out for a contract adjustment for Hunter.
Hunter missed this past season after undergoing surgery for a herniated disc. He had expressed unhappiness through his agent with his contract, which still has three years remaining, at that time but Vikings GM Rick Spielman said earlier this offseason Hunter had not requested a trade and downplayed the situation.
Hunter, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Vikings back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.969 million rookie contract when Minnesota re-signed him to a five-year, $72 million extension that includes $40 million guaranteed to go along with a $15 million signing bonus.
Hunter just finished the second year of his deal and was set to earn base salaries of $10,900,000 next season and $11,400,000 for the following three years.
In 2019, Hunter appeared in all 16 games and recorded 70 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
We’ll have more on Hunter as the news is available.
