And it sounds like the experiment is over

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the great German experiment for the Minnesota Vikings has officially come to an end.

According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings will be waiving wide receiver Moritz Böhringer, and it doesn’t appear that they have any intention of bringing him back to the practice squad.

Böhringer was a sixth-round pick of the Vikings in the 2016 NFL Draft, becoming the first player to be drafted without having played at a college in North America. Despite his undeniable athleticism, he just couldn’t quite get caught up to the speed and physicality of the American game. He did have a catch in the preseason finale against Miami, but it appears that it’s the only one he’ll have in his NFL career.
