Benwikere signed with the Vikings on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Benwikere is a journeyman's journeyman, as the Vikings mark his sixth team in as many seasons. Due to a variety of injury and suspension issues, the 27-year-old has a legit shot to earn a spot on the team's final 53-man roster, but still has some work cut out ahead of him.

The Panthers are hoping that an improved offensive line and additional offensive weapons will lead to a healthier and more productive season for Cam Newton in 2015-16.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
In 13 games last year, Benwikere registered 59 tackles, nine passes defended and one sack, but a lower leg fracture ended his second season in December. Prior to then, Benwikere proved to be an excellent nickel cornerback, and also showed the ability to play outside in wake of injuries to his teammates. While Benwikere should be healthy by Week 1 of this season, the Panthers' two starting jobs could very well be filled by rookie draft picks, which would leave him to continue in an inside role that may feature slightly fewer snaps.
A fifth-round pick in 2014, Benwikere ultimately emerged as one of the Panthers' top cornerbacks over the course of his rookie season. Overall, the San Jose State product finished with 33 tackles, seven passes defended and one interception. Heading into his second season, Benwikere is expected to start at Carolina's nickel position, a significant role that should see his fantasy stock continue to rise.
A fifth-round selection this year, Benwikere will be expected to provide depth at cornerback during his rookie campaign.
