Hunter’s name has remained a target around the NFL since summer 2023, when the Vikings received trade offers before signing him to a revised one-year, $20 million contract.

His stock was even higher at the trade deadline given that he had a league-leading 10 sacks through eight weeks. According to Meirov, Hunter pleaded with the front office to keep him for the remainder of the season.

“He actually went up to the front office and told them, ‘Please, don’t trade me. I want to stay here for the rest of the year,” Meirov said.

KSTP’s Darren Wolfson has maintained throughout the Hunter saga that Hunter likes his situation in Minnesota and is open to taking a team discount — but the Vikings will have to meet him halfway if he attracts a lucrative market.

Entering the 2024 offseason, Hunter is the 12th-ranked free agent, according to Pro Football Focus. Teams that feel they’re an edge rusher away from making a deep playoff run could be more than willing to splurge for an established edge rusher like Hunter.
