Updating an earlier item, Broncos OG John Moffitt has decided to leave the game of football.
"I'm ready to live a different kind of life," Moffitt told Seattle radio host Dave "Softy" Mahler. Moffitt informed the Broncos of his decision two days ago, and was placed on the reserve/left squad list on Tuesday. An All-American at Wisconsin, Moffitt made 15 starts for the Seahawks between 2011-12, but had been active only twice for the Broncos, playing nine snaps. Tue, Nov 5, 2013 04:35:00 PM

Broncos placed OG John Moffitt on the reserve/left squad list.

Reportedly frustrated by his lack of playing time, Moffitt didn't report to the Broncos when they returned from their Week 9 bye. Acquired from the Seahawks in August, Moffitt was a healthy scratch for six of Denver's first eight games. Now he's ineligible to return this season. A 2011 third-rounder, Moffitt made six starts for Seattle last season, and nine in 2011.

Broncos acquired OG John Moffitt from the Seahawks in exchange for DT Sealver Siliga.

A bum knee voided Moffitt's trade to Cleveland, but the Broncos are willing to take a chance on his health. Moffitt has made 15 career starts, but will come off the bench behind Zane Beadles and Louis Vasquez in Denver. That's if he can get healthy. It's worth noting Moffitt played some center in college. Ryan Lilja is currently penciled in, but center is a major question mark for the Broncos.

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

Moffitt failed his physical, and his rights have reverted to the Seahawks. Sanford's rights have reverted to the Browns. Considering Cleveland's issues at guard, their examination of Moffitt must have turned up something major. It's unclear what the Seahawks plan to do with Moffitt, but he could be waived.

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

It's a solid pickup for the guard-needy Browns, who became extremely thin on the interior after losing Jason Pinkston and Shawn Lauvao to injuries. Moffitt now becomes the favorite to open the year as Cleveland's starting right guard. The 75th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Moffitt has made 15 NFL starts. He was getting beaten out by J.R. Sweezy at right guard in Seahawks camp.

Seahawks OG John Moffitt pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was fined $1,407.

Moffitt also received a suspended sentence of 24 months in jail, but he won't have to serve it as long as he avoids further legal trouble. Moffitt originally faced two misdemeanor charges -- criminal trespassing and obstruction of a law enforcement officer -- following a series of three different incidents at Bellevue Square mall. He shouldn't face any discipline from the NFL.

Seahawks OG John Moffitt was absent from OTAs on Tuesday due to a court appearance.

The charges are misdemeanors for trespassing and obstruction, and shouldn't have an impact on the upcoming season. Moffitt began last season as the starting right guard, but missed time due to elbow and knee injuries before eventually being scratched healthy. He's back to competing for a job.

Seahawks OG John Moffitt is active for Sunday's Wild Card round game at the Redskins after being a healthy scratch the past two weeks.

J.R. Sweezy is expected to draw the start at right guard, but Moffitt could end up splitting time. Seahawks inactives: WR Deon Butler, OG Rishaw Johnson, OT Mike Person, S Winston Guy, CB DeShawn Shead, LB Allen Bradford, and DT Jaye Howard. Seattle doesn't have a single injured-related inactive for the playoffs.

Seahawks RG John Moffitt (knee) returned to practice on Monday.

Moffitt was injured in Week 3 against the Packers, and Monday was his first practice since going down with the injury. Paul McQuistan has been starting at right guard for the Seahawks, and according to Pro Football Focus, he has been an above average run blocker.

Seahawks declared RG John Moffitt, WR Charly Martin, SS Winston Guy, CB Danny Gorrer, CB Jeremy Lane, DT Clinton McDonald and DT Jaye Howard inactive for Week 6 against the Patriots.

Marshawn Lynch was limited in Wednesday's practice for rest purposes, but was full go on both Thursday and Friday. He's ready to go against the Patriots' top-10 run defense. Pat McQuistan is making another start in Moffitt's absence. Moffitt remains week-to-week.

The Seahawks have no timetable for RG John Moffitt's (knee) return.

Pat McQuistan played well in place of Moffitt in last week's win over Carolina, so Seattle should be able to wait out the absence. "It was a little bit more serious than we thought," Carroll said. "So we're just making sure we're taking care of him. We're OK on the depth chart right now so it's working out."

Seahawks RG John Moffitt (knee) has been declared out for Week 6 against the Patriots.

Moffitt has been sidelined since Week 4, and remains week-to-week. Marshawn Lynch has had little trouble rolling up big numbers in his right guard's absence.

Seahawks declared RG John Moffitt (knee) inactive for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Panthers.

Marshawn Lynch hasn't missed Moffitt too much as he leads the league in rushing. Otherwise, the Seahawks are healthy as CB Marcus Trufant (back) is ready to go. Their inactives: WR Charly Martin, SS Winston Guy, CBs Danny Gorrer and Jeremy Lane, DTs Jaye Howard and Greg Scruggs.
Sun, Oct 7, 2012 02:47:00 PM

Seahawks RG John Moffitt (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5 against the Panthers.

It will be Moffitt's third straight absence. It's a blow to the Seahawks' running game, but Marshawn Lynch has still been rolling up big numbers in Moffitt's absence. He remains week-to-week.
Wed, Oct 3, 2012 07:07:00 PM

Seahawks declared RG John Moffitt, WR Charly Martin, S Winston Guy, CB Danny Gorrer, CB Bryon Maxwell, DT Jaye Howard and DT Greg Scruggs inactive for Week 4 against the Rams.

G/T James Carpenter (knee) is active, and will be making his 2012 debut. He'll start at left guard. Otherwise, it's a quiet week for the Seahawks, who enter the quarter pole as one of the league's healthier teams. Earlier reports that DT Alan Branch was inactive were inaccurate.
