Ham, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Augustana (SD) back in 2016. He later signed on with the Vikings, but was waived at the start of the regular season.
Ham was later re-signed to the Vikings’ practice squad before being called up towards the end of his rookie year. The Vikings brought him back last year on a one-year deal.
In 2019, Ham appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and rushed for 17 yards on seven carries (2.4 YPC) to go along with 17 receptions for 149 yards receiving and one touchdown.
