Will Danielle Hunter show up for Vikings’ mandatory minicamp?

Mike Florio and Chris Simms make their picks for the best players in the NFC North who aren't QBs, including Bears LB Khalil Mack, Vikings RB Dalvin Cook and more.

Aaron Rodgers isn’t the only high-profile NFC North player not happy with his current circumstances.

In Minnesota, Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter continues to stay away from the team as he continues to seek (presumably) a new contract. Next week, the Vikings have their mandatory minicamp. So will Hunter attend?

“I will keep that between me and D and that’s all I’m going to say on that,” Vikings co-defensive coordinator Andre Patterson told reporters on Thursday, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Hunter is under contract through 2023 at an annual new-money average of $14.4 million. That’s well below the current top of the market.

That said, he missed all of 2020 with a neck injury. It could make sense for him to re-establish himself on the field before seeking a raise from the Vikings -- or from a new team after a trade.
