NOLA.COM – Danielle Hunter agrees to $72 million contract extension
with Vikings: report – (NOLA.COM)

Former LSU star and current Minnesota Viking Danielle Hunter just became one of the highest-paid players in the NFL. 

The 23-year-old defensive end agreed to a five-year, $72 million extension with the Vikings on Wednesday with a $15 million signing bonus and $40 million in guarantees, according to NFL Network. 

This makes Hunter the eighth highest-paid defensive lineman in the NFL, per Spotrac.com, and the second-highest paid former LSU player behind Jarvis Landry and ahead of Patrick Peterson.

Hunter came to Minnesota as a third round pick in 2015. He quickly earned playing time with six sacks and 25 tackles as a rookie.

He broke out with 12.5 sacks in 2016 and had another seven as a full-time starter in 2017.
