Seahawks trade OL John Moffitt to Denver after Cleveland voids initial trade

Moffitt, however,won’t be returning to Seattle as he was then traded to Denver for defensive tackle Sealver Siliga — here’s the Broncos’ official release on that deal.

Moffitt was traded for defensive end Brian Sanford, who will  now return to the Browns.

Moffitt had injury problems throughout his time in Seattle. He missed the second half of his rookie year because of a knee injury and then had surgery on his elbow during training camp last year.

Moffitt began to participated in a practice for Cleveland Tuesday, having talked to reporters beforehand, but was then pulled off the field shortly afterward.

Siliga announced his trade to Seattle via Twitter a little while ago:
