Other roster moves include:

Griffin, 31, recently signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Vikings this offseason, making his time in Minnesota very short lived. He was also entering the final year of his five-year, $35 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed when he was released by the Titans back in February.

In 2015, Griffin appeared in 15 games for the Titans and recorded 101 tackles, one sack, an interception, and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 77 safety out of 88 qualifying players.


Boehringer was one of the best stories that came out of this year’s NFL draft and is the first player to be drafted out of European league

Boehringer receives a four-year deal worth $2,490,420 and includes a signing bonus of $150,402, according to

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.


Sorensen, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Chargers back in 2013. He was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later signed by the Titans to their practice squad.

However, Sorensen lasted less than a week in Tennessee before later returning to the Chargers at the end of the 2014 season. After spending some time with the Chargers, Sorensen signed a contract with the Vikings a few weeks ago.

The Vikings then made Sorensen one of their roster cuts as they trimmed down to 75 players, but was brought back just a few days ago.

Sorensen has yet to appear in an NFL game.
