Browns signed DE Brian Sanford to a two-year contract.

Sanford has a history with the Browns as he spent 2010-2012 with them appearing in six games and spending time on the practice squad. He was traded to the Seahawks in August, but the deal was voided when John Moffitt failed his physical. Sanford was then waived and landed with the Raiders, who cut him loose in November. Now the rotational end and special teamer is back where it all started.

Raiders waived DL Brian Sanford.

Sanford appeared in four games as a situational run stopper, but hasn't been active since Week 5. OL Jack Cornell was promoted from the practice squad to take his spot on the 53-man roster.

Raiders claimed DL Brian Sanford off waivers from the Browns.

Again, they'll take what they can get. Sanford, 26, is a 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive line 'tweener at 6-foot-2 and 280 pounds. The Seahawks did try trading for Sanford in August, but the deal was rescinded when John Moffitt failed his Browns physical. Sanford will add depth to a pathetic Raiders D-Line.

NFL voided Seattle's acquisition of DL Brian Sanford from the Browns in exchange for OG John Moffitt.

Moffitt failed his physical, so Sanford's rights have reverted to the Browns. A situational run stuffer who was buried on the depth chart before his trade, Sanford appears unlikely to survive final cuts.

Seahawks acquired DL Brian Sanford from the Browns in exchange for OG John Moffitt.

A 6-foot-2, 280-pound situational run stuffer and special teamer, Sanford was buried in Cleveland behind Ahtyba Rubin, Desmond Bryant, Billy Wynn, and John Hughes. Sanford should be stretched to make Seattle's final 53-man roster.

Browns placed DE Brian Sanford (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The extent of Sanford's knee injury was never revealed. Sanford, 25, was a run-stopping end at 6-foot-2 and 280 pounds. He also played on special teams.

Browns signed DL Brian Sanford from the team's practice squad.

Sanford takes the roster spot vacated by Scott Fujita (neck, injured reserve). The 25-year-old made five tackles in five games with Cleveland last season.
Sat, Oct 27, 2012 05:00:00 PM

Browns waived DL Brian Sanford and Scott Paxson.

Paxson was waived/injured. Sanford appeared in five games last season, making three tackles. A reserve nose tackle, Paxson suited up for all 16 games in 2011, tallying 21 tackles and a sack.

Browns signed DL Brian Sanford from the practice squad, and released T Paul McQuistan.

McQuistan did not play in any games after being with the team for four weeks. Sanford, an undrafted free agent out of Temple, will provide depth along the defensive line with Kenyon Coleman (knee) and Shaun Rogers (ankle) listed as questionable for Week 10.
