Minnesota Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter agreed to terms on a multi-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, but NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that it's a five-year, $72 million extension -- with $40 million in guarantees and a $15 million signing bonus.
Hunter was entering the final year of his contract with a base salary of $1.9 million.
The 23-year-old Hunter recorded 45 tackles, seven sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 16 games last season. He evolved from situational pass rusher to a full-time starter in 2017 while playing on 78 percent of the Vikings' defensive snaps.
Hunter collected 134 tackles and 25.5 sacks in 46 career contests since being selected by the Vikings in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
