John Moffitt deal to Cleveland rescinded, heading to Denver now
John Moffitt's trade to the Browns was rescinded and now the former Seahawks offensive lineman is heading to Denver in his second trade of the past 24 hours.
The Broncos announced that they traded for Moffitt on Tuesday, as the Browns and Seahawks had their deal rescinded less than 24 hours after the teams agreed to move Moffitt. Reportedly the deal fell through because Moffitt failed his physical in Cleveland.
In exchange, Denver sent defensive tackle Sealver Siliga to Seattle. Siliga tweeted that he was excited for the "new journey."
It's official just got traded to the Seattle Seahawks! Thanks denver broncos organization for everything they've done for me. New journey!— sealver siliga (@S_Siliga) August 20, 2013
There was no tweet from Moffitt about either trade, which is really a shame because his Twitter profile pic is both amazing and terrifying.
Seattle felt they had sufficient depth at the guard position to move Moffitt, a third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, to beef up their defensive line.
Originally they planned to receive Browns defensive end Brian Sanford in exchange for Moffitt but that deal fell through.
Denver needs the offensive line depth and Moffit provides that, along with the added bonus of being a stand-in for John Snow from Game of Thrones:
