The surprise here is that the Vikings and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah decided to absorb so much of the cap hit in 2023 instead of pushing it out further. They did have over $18 million in cap space for 2023, which gave them the freedom to do so.
The cap hit for 2023 is $20.95 million, a projected increase of $7.83 million. His dead cap hit if Hunter plays elsewhere in 2024 will be slightly less than $15 million.
The Vikings are projected to have approximately $10.27 million remaining in 2023 salary cap space, which could be used to extend both wide receiver Justin Jefferson and tight end T.J. Hockenson this season.
