Since he became the first of the NFL's 253 members of the draft class of 2016 to sign his rookie contract, we haven't heard a whole lot from Minnesota Vikings' sixth-round choice Moritz Böhringer. We heard a few things about some of the issues he's had during offseason workouts, but other than that it's been pretty quiet.

On Sunday, the NFL Network is going to give us a closer look at the journey that Böhringer has taken in his efforts to be the first player to make the jump from Europe directly to the National Football League.

The NFL Network will be airing "Undiscovered Journey" centered around Böhringer. It will air at 6 PM Central time on Sunday, 17 July.

To be honest, this is the first I've heard about this show, so I'm not sure what it's going to entail. About all I can give you is the generic description from the NFL Network website.

Three European football players, German Moritz Bohringer, Frenchman Anthony Dablé and England's Harry Innis, pursue the dream of making an NFL roster. Their lives and hopes take center stage as they travel thousands of miles, adjust to life in an unfamiliar country, and put their lives on the line for a game they love.

So, it won't just be about Böhringer, but given what happened on draft weekend, he's probably the most well-known name of the three. Dablé and Innis are both currently with the New York Giants. Dablé is a wide receiver and Innis is a tight end.

It's an hour-long episode, and as a special bonus the NFL Network is airing the Vikings' 2015 highlights immediately following "Undiscovered Journey," so you can kick back and watch that as well.
