Fields, 22, wound up going undrafted out of Clemson back in April. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Chiefs.
Kansas City traded Fields to the Vikings coming out of the preseason for a 2021 seventh-round pick. However, Minnesota elected to waive him coming out of training camp and re-signed him to their practice squad.
During his four-year college career at Clemson, Field recorded 39 tackles, one sack, an interception, a defensive touchdown and 11 pass defenses over the course of 27 games.
