The Minnesota Vikings and defensive end Danielle Hunter have agreed to a reworked deal, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Hunter is now expected to attend Minnesota's mandatory minicamp, which kicks off Tuesday.

Many believed the two-time Pro Bowler could've held out due to his reported unhappiness with his contract situation.

The 26-year-old, who didn't attend the Vikings' organized team activities, had inked a five-year, $72-million contract in 2018. Hunter's previous $14.4 million average annual salary currently ranks 13th in the league, according to Spotrac.

Hunter didn't play last season after undergoing surgery on a herniated disc in October.

The 2015 third-round pick has been Minnesota's main pass-rusher in recent seasons, leading the team with 14.5 sacks in 2018 and 2019 and recording at least 12 sacks in three of his first five NFL campaigns.
