John Moffitt traded to Browns

John Moffitt’s tenure with the Seahawks has ended after two seasons as the former third-round draft choice was traded to the Cleveland Browns on Monday for defensive lineman Brian Sanford.

The Seahawks have traded former third-round draft choice guard John Moffitt to the Cleveland Browns for defensive lineman Brian Sanford, pending physicals.

The 6-foot-2, 280-pound Sanford joined the Browns as a rookie free agent in 2010, when he split the season between the practice squad and 53-man roster but did not play in a game. He appeared in the final five games in 2011, making five tackles, after starting the season on the practice squad; and one game last season, when he also was on the practice squad for the first seven weeks.

Moffitt was the 75th pick overall in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Seahawks and started the first nine games that season before getting a season-ending knee injury. He played in eight games last season, starting six.

Moffitt became expendable because of the continuing development of J.R. Sweezy, a defensive lineman in college who started the opener last season after being drafted in the seventh round and also was in the lineup at right guard for the final two regular-season games and both playoff games.

The Browns view Moffitt as upgrade to the depth on their offensive line.

“We continue to look each day of the year for any opportunity to improve our roster,” CEO Joe Banner told Browns.com. “We’re committed to building a team that can consistently compete in this league.”

Added Brown’s coach Rob Chudzinski, “John’s a tough and versatile lineman who will be in the mix for us up front.”
