Vikings German rookie Böhringer doesn't own car, walks to practice every day

- Vikings rookie wide receiver Moritz Böhringer, 22, revealed in a recent interview that he doesn't own a car, and he actually walks to practice every day.

"The main reason why I walk everywhere is because I don't have a car because I wanted to save money," Boehringer said Tuesday in an interview with TransferWise. "Every morning I just walk to the facility [Winter Park], and in the afternoon I walk back."

Böhringer, from Germany, is the first-ever player to be drafted by an NFL team directly from Europe.

The rookie apparently lives three miles from the Vikings' facility in Eden Prairie, so he's walking a total of roughly six miles each time. He said his significant other gets a kick out of him walking everywhere.

"My girlfriend thinks it's pretty crazy, because, like most Americans, she drives everywhere," Boehringer said.
