Teams are inquiring about Minnesota Vikings pass-rusher Danielle Hunter‘s availability, sources told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The Vikings reportedly aren’t actively shopping Hunter, but other clubs believe he’s a trade candidate due to Minnesota’s cap issues.

The NFC North team is currently $15.2 million over the cap ahead of the new league year on March 16, the third-worst mark in the NFL, per Spotrac.

Hunter has an $18-million roster bonus due March 20, adds Fowler.

The 28-year-old played in only seven games this past campaign after tearing his pectoral. He also missed the entire 2020 season due to a neck injury.

However, Hunter was one of the league’s most productive pass-rushers from 2018-19, racking up two straight years with 14.5 sacks.

The Vikings hired Kevin O’Connell as their head coach and Kwesi Adofo-Mensah as their general manager this offseason, potentially signaling the start of a rebuild for the franchise.
