                 === Browns obtain G Moffitt from Seahawks ===
 
 Berea,  OH (Sports  Network) - In an  effort to add depth to an injury-plagued
 interior  of  their offensive  line, the Cleveland  Browns acquired guard John
 Moffitt  from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday in exchange for defensive lineman
 Brian Sanford.
 
 A  third-round pick of Seattle in the 2011 draft, Moffitt started 15 games for
 the  Seahawks during  his first  two  NFL seasons,  but had  been bypassed  by
 second-year pro J.R. Sweezy on the depth chart at right guard during camp.
 
 The  Wisconsin  product joins a  Cleveland team that has  two of its top three
 guards,  Shawn Lauvao and Jason Pinkston, currently battling injuries that are
 expected  to  keep both out  for the  upcoming season opener. Lauvao underwent
 surgery on his left ankle earlier this month, while Pinkston is dealing with a
 high ankle sprain.
 
 Sanford  has appeared in  six games with the Browns over the past two seasons,
 but has just five tackles to his credit.
