Minnesota Vikings pass rusher Danielle Hunter has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for Philadelphia Eagles outside linebacker Haason Reddick.

After appearing in a total of seven games in the 2020 and 2021 seasons combined, Danielle Hunter was able to remain healthy and start all 17 matchups for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2022 campaign. In addition to staying healthy, Hunter also performed very well in 2022, and on Monday, he was rewarded for his play when he was added to this season’s NFC Pro Bowl roster.

The Vikings pass rusher was added to the NFC’s all-star roster as a replacement for Philadephia Eagles outside linebacker Haason Reddick.

Members of the Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs won’t be participating in this season’s first-annual Pro Bowl Games as both teams earned a spot in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday.

With Monday’s announcement, Hunter will now join quarterback Kirk Cousins, wide receiver Justin Jefferson, running back Dalvin Cook, tight end T.J. Hockenson, and long snapper Andrew DePaola to represent Minnesota on the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster.

For the veteran pass rusher, it’s the third time in his NFL career that he’s been a part of a Pro Bowl roster, and it’s his first selection since the 2019 season.

In 17 games for the Vikings in 2022, Hunter finished with 65 tackles (12 for a loss), 76 pressures, 10.5 sacks, three pass deflections, and one forced fumble. His 71 career sacks currently rank eighth all-time in Minnesota’s team history.
