The Cincinnati Bengals announced Monday that they’ve waived WR Moritz Bohringer and RB Devwah Whaley.
Bohringer was the first international player to be drafted who didn’t play college football.
Bohringer, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2016. He signed a four-year deal worth $2,490,420 with Minnesota but was cut loose at the start of the 2016 season and later re-signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.
Bohringer returned to the Vikings on a future/reserve contract in 2017 but was once again cut loose. The Bengals added him to their practice squad as their international development player in 2018 and he’s remained in Cincinnati ever since.
In Germany, Boehringer caught 70 passes for 1,461 yards (20.9 YPR) and 16 touchdowns, which was good enough for Rookie of the Year honors.
