Summary

At only 23 years old, Hunter has become one of the best defensive ends in the game. There is speculation that Hunter will get the franchise tag next year or a long-term deal this year, as he will be entering free agency in 2019. Hunter had a down year last year, but it was because offenses made stopping Hunter a focal point of the game plan after his impressive 2016 campaign in which he recorded 12.5 sacks. He managed only seven in 2017. His linemates benefited, especially Everson Griffen, who broke out for 13 sacks. Adding Sheldon Richardson in free agency to the interior defensive line is promising for Hunter's prospects, as teams will not have the resources to double team all the fantastic interior and edge options along this defensive front. Expect a rebound that places Hunter among the top options at his position. (May 15)
