In the year 2020, the Jacksonville Jaguars were the team that brought Hammond into the National Football League (NFL) as an undrafted rookie free agent.
As a result of spending his first two years in the league on the practice squad for the team, he had very few opportunities to demonstrate his worth and has only participated in two games up to this point.
Hammond went on to briefly join the Philadelphia Eagles and after being waived again got a one-year deal to participate in the Patriots’ training camp. Eventually, the Jaguars severed company with him after the 2022 draft; after that, Hammond signed a one-year deal to play for the Patriots.
Before beginning his career in the NFL, Hammond spent four years honing his skills as a pass catcher at the University of Florida. During that time, he participated in a total of 49 games during his time there, starting 31 of them.
He was able to put up some consistent numbers despite the fact that he was primarily a WR3 on a club that was loaded with NFL talent throughout its receiving corps. At the end of his career, Hammond finished with a total of 87 receptions, 1,138 receiving yards, and six touchdowns.
In addition, he carried the ball nine times for 134 yards and added two more touchdowns to his stat line.
