  Bengals | Cincy signs five to future contracts    Mon Dec 31, 03:20 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Moritz Bohringer, S Demetrious Cox, C Brad Lundblade, TE Andrew Vollert and WR Kermit Whitfield were signed to Reserve/Future deals Monday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: In super deep dynasty leagues we'll keep an eye on these guys. Böhringer, the most interesting prospect here, is a German-born player who was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was the first European player to be selected in the NFL Draft without playing any college football. Size and athleticism are hallmarks of his game, but Bohringer needs to work on the nuances of the position after transitioning from wide receiver to tight end.

  Bengals | Cincinnati adds 9 to practice squad    Sun Sep 2, 04:47 PM

Free-agent TE Moritz Bohringer, DT Anthony Brown, RB Quinton Flowers, TE Jordan Franks, CB C.J. Goodwin, OT Kent Perkins, CB Keivarae Russell, WR Kermit Whitfield and LB Chris Worley were signed to the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad Sunday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Bohringer was drafted by Minnesota in the sixth round in 2016 as a wide receiver almost strictly on his physical attributes after playing semi-pro ball in Germany. Getting on the practice after a position conversion to tight end is a good sign for his future.

Minnesota Vikings DT Sterling Bailey, WR Moritz Bohringer, TE Kyle Carter, WR Cayleb Jones, OT Marquis Lucas, CB Tre Roberson, RB Bishop Sankey, S Cedric Thompson and OT Austin Shepherd were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: This is an interesting group of players signed to futures deals. Bohringer was the first German player drafted in the NFL without playing college football. His size/speed combination showed up watching Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns film on YouTube. A sixth-round pick of the Vikings this year, Bohringer was released on final cuts after camp but he did get signed to the practice squad and spent the season there.

  Vikings | Charles Johnson on track to make team?    Fri Jul 22, 09:15 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson is likely competing with WR Moritz Boehringer for a spot on the roster, according to beat writer Matt Vensel, who also mentioned that Johnson had a strong spring while working mainly with the first-team offense.

Footballguys view: Johnson created a ton of buzz last offseason, but was banged up and never followed through in the regular season. Boehringer has a ton of size/speed upside, but he has only played as high as semi-pro ball in Germany and is more likely a practice squad candidate.

  Vikings | Moritz Bohringer may not make team    Thu Jul 21, 04:13 PM

Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Moritz Bohringer is not slated to make the final roster, according to Andrew Krammer of 1500ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: That's rough, especially since his size could come in useful. We suppose you could read into this that Cordarrelle Patterson is safe for another year though. Bohringer would not have had a fantasy impact in any event this year.
