The Browns have made another trade.
“We continue to look each day of the year for any opportunity to improve our roster,” CEO Joe Banner said in a statement issued by the Browns. “We’re committed to a building a team that can consistently compete in this league.”
Moffitt was a third-round pick in 2011; Sanford signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2010.
“John’s a tough and versatile lineman who will be in the mix for us upfront,” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said.
The acquisition of Moffitt could be related to a high-ankle sprain recently suffered by Jason Pinkston, one of the three candidates to play guard for the Browns.
Regardless, Moffitt adds some veteran experience to a team with plenty of young players. The release announcing the trade specifically points out that the Browns have added 11 players this year who are either 26 or 27.
