Intro
And now it's time for training camp today with Neil Roberts and the Minnesota Vikings.

Neil Roberts
It's already his seventh season as the Vikings signed undrafted free agent deal out of Augustana, Sioux Falls and then Field High School Duluth. So this guy has a lot of roots in that region. C.J. Ham joins us and C.J. has a new head coach, offensive coordinator, new playbook. How is this new look Viking offense sinking in?

C.J. Ham
Everything is going great. Our coaches have been dialing it up. We have some extremely smart coaches. We've got some great players.

Neil Roberts
Now, not just joining back position, but lots of moving pieces perhaps for you with this new offense. Are you getting some looks at maybe slot tight end motion, stuff like that as you're all going to change maybe from your old fullback position? Or is that going to just kind of remain intact?

C.J. Ham
I always just go out there and do what's ever asked me in every offense I've been in and I've kind of moved all over the place. So, you know, whatever they asked me to do, I'm ready to do it. And I try to do it to the highest level.

Neil Roberts
All right. Hey, we'll talk more about that position when we come back.

Neil Roberts
With, C.J. Ham and C.J., you talked about that performing at the highest level and still blocking and different schemes and stuff. How difficult is it for a pro athlete when you've been in certain systems for a while and do all coordinators change from playbook to Playbook?

C.J. Ham
Oh, you know, at the end of the day, it's all football. I love football. I enjoy it. I enjoy learning. Obviously, no one wants to continue to have new offensive coordinators, but it's been a lot of fun.

Neil Roberts
Great running back group you guys have in some fast rookies or a fast second year guy as well. And of course, you've got Alexander and Dalvin and stuff yourself. Impressive group I.

C.J. Ham
Want to present to our group has always been pretty special. Me, you know, obviously Dalvin being in my opinion the best running back in the league. Alex can go out there and do a lot of different stuff. I'm excited to see our group work as a whole.

Neil Roberts
Thanks, T.J.. Have a great 2022.

C.J. Ham
Appreciate it.

Neil Roberts
C.J. Ham, everybody. Hey, that brings this report to a close. Next time. I'm Neil Roberts.
