The Facts: Exclusive rights free agents Ham and Matt Wile will return to the Vikings. Sources said Tuesday the Vikings will bring back Ham, a fullback, and Wile, a punter. Both will sign one-year, $645,000 contracts.
Diehards Line: Ham, undrafted in 2016, spent most of that season on the practice squad. He has been the team’s regular fullback the past two years. Last season, Ham had six carries for eight yards and caught 11 passes for 85 yards. He has career totals of 13 carries for 21 yards, and 18 receptions for 153 yards. Wile was claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh the week before the start of last season. On 72 punts, he averaged 45.2 yards gross and 42.0 net.
