Per Vikings beat reporter Chris Tomasson, the Vikings have made a couple roster moves today - extending fullback C.J. Ham and punter Matt Wile.
Neither moves were surprises, as they were both exclusive rights free agents (ERFA) that performed well last season.
Source says the #Vikings have agreed to bring back exclusive rights free agent fullback CJ Ham. He'll be signing a deal worth $645,000 for next season. The move was expected that Ham would be back.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) March 5, 2019
#Vikings hoping Matt Wile, who is returning on a one-year, $645,000 contract, can continue to provide stability at punter. Jeff Locke was often shaky and Ryan Quigley's one year wasn't great but Wile last season averaged a solid 45.2 yards gross, 42.0 net.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) March 5, 2019
A couple secondary moves to be sure, but the Vikings are taking care of business with a couple good performers last year.
C.J. Ham has been a top special teams performer for the Vikings since he first signed, and has also been very good as a pass blocking fullback - two valuable skills contributions for a fullback.
Matt Wile did well as a punter for the Vikings, averaging 45.2 gross yards per punt, and 41.5 net yards, with an average of 4.43 second hangtime. He also had 31 of his 72 punts inside the 20 yard line, and only 30 of his punts (41.7%) returned, with one of them blocked.
Overall a couple good ancillary players locked up for the Vikings next season.
