Will Danielle Hunter show up for Vikings’ mandatory minicamp?
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.
