The Browns voided their trade with Seattle for guard John Moffitt today because of health concerns a league source said.
Hours after the trade was voided the Seahawks traded Moffitt to the Broncos for defensive tackle Sealver Siliga.
The Browns will retain the rights to defensive lineman Brian Sanford who had been shipped to the Seahawks in the trade for Moffitt.
Moffitt talked to the media in the locker room before practice and then pulled on his shells and jersey and headed out to the practice field helmet in hand. But before he even began warming up coach Rob Chudzinski escorted him back to the locker room and was overheard telling him they would take care of it upstairs.
Moffitt a third-round pick of the Seahawks in 2011 out of Wisconsin was set to compete with rookie Garrett Gilkey for the starting right guard job in the absence of the injured Shawn Lauvao and Jason Pinkston.
Moffitt who started the first nine games of his rookie year tore knee ligaments and underwent surg...

If you’ve felt yourself feeling a little down the past two days, perhaps so far as in the dumps, it’s likely because Seattle Seahawks‘ funny-man John Moffitt was traded to the Denver Broncos yesterday after it had been announced that J.R. Sweezy had won the starting guard job.
But, as in all things Moffitt, he made sure his exit from the organization was comical...

That was interesting.
The Browns and Seattle Seahawks made a trade yesterday sending DE Brian Sanford to the Seahawks for offensive lineman John Moffitt. The guard was in Berea today, but just before practice he was brought back into the locker room. It seems the Browns didn’t like what they saw in Moffitt’s physical.
