The Vikings have put their $72 million Pro Bowler on the market for a trade.
Longtime franchise cornerstones who don't suit general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah's vision for the future of the organization have been told they're on their
way out during the 2023 offseason, and this phrase has become something of a mantra. Not that Pro Bowl edge rusher Danielle Hunter doesn't fit that goal,
but rather that he's choosing not to by holding out for more money than the Vikings are willing to give right now.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler claimed on Saturday, July 29 that the Vikings had considered trading Hunter due to his dissatisfaction with his contract.
According to Fowler's sources, the Vikings had made the former Pro Bowler available. Hunter has reportedly been offered an extension by the Vikings, but not one he considers to be in line with his abilities.

being in the midst of a "hold-in" in his pursuit of a new contract as the team's star defensive end. After missing OTAs
and a mandated minicamp, Fowler said Hunter is now sitting out regular season sessions.
