Vikings OLB Danielle Hunter added to Pro Bowl roster

Minnesota Vikings outside linebacker Danielle Hunter was added to the Pro Bowl roster Monday as an alternate for Super Bowl-bound Haason Reddick of the Philadelphia Eagles.

It is the third Pro Bowl appearance for Hunter (2018, 2019), who started all 17 games for the NFC North champs and registered 10.5 sacks, 65 tackles and one forced fumble.

The addition of Hunter, 28, gives the Vikings seven players participating in the Las Vegas showcase. He joins Kirk Cousins, Justin Jefferson, Dalvin Cook, T.J. Hockenson, Za’Darius Smith and Andrew DePaola.

The reinvented Pro Bowl Games, including a flag football contest, will take place from Thursday through Sunday in Las Vegas.
