So Long again… John
Another twist just minutes after the last Moffitt news…
Ten minutes ago we thought we were getting funny-man John Moffitt back. Now via Jay Glazer we’ve found out we’re getting DT Sealver Siliga.
Sealver Siliga #98 DT
Height: 6-2 Weight: 325 Age: 23
Born: 4/26/1990 West Jordan , UT

Here’s what we’ve learned in the 10 minutes since Glazer’s tweet. Softy says Moffitt has a possible knee injury.
Hearing Moffitt failed physical with Browns. Bad knee. Told Hawks are now trading him to Denver.

The Broncos say they’ve officially acquired Moffitt.

From the Broncos website. “Siliga spent the entire 2012 season on the team’s active roster, contributing one tackle in one game played. He spent the 2011 season on the club’s practice squad. “Thanks (to the) Denver Broncos organization for everything they’ve done for me,” Siliga tweeted. This day is just pure comedy.
Funny part about trade falling through, when Carroll was talking about Sanford earlier, he caught himself noting that deal wasn’t yet final.
