Moffitt trade to Cleveland voided due to health issues; he’s headed to Denver instead

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cleveland Browns voided the trade of offensive lineman John Moffitt in exchange for defensive lineman Brian Sanford because Moffitt failed his physical with the Browns.

So now Moffitt’s rights returns to the Seahawks, and Sanford goes back to Cleveland. Moffitt had major knee surgery two years ago, and also had elbow surgery a year ago.

The Seahawks wasted little time, sending Moffitt to Denver for defensive tackle Sealver Sealver Siliga, according to the Denver Broncos’ website.

UPDATE: The Seahawks confirmed the trade, pending Moffitt passes a physical.

At 6-3 and 325 pounds, Siliga was an undrafted rookie free agent out of Utah who spent time his rookie season on Denver’s practice squad in 2011, and played in one game for the Broncos in 2012.
