Ham is replacing 49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk, who is heading to Super Bowl LVIII with San Francisco.
"It's such an honor to go back to the NFL Pro Bowl Games and represent the Vikings with my guys, Andrew and Danielle," Ham said. "In this league, to even be considered for this game is a huge honor that I definitely don't take lightly.
"My family and I are really looking forward to making some more memories in Orlando," he added. "SKOL Vikings!"
This will mark the second career Pro Bowl for Ham, who also participated following the 2019 season.
