         === Browns-Seahawks trade nixed; Moffitt dealt to Broncos ===
 
 Englewood,  CO (Sports  Network)  -  The Denver  Broncos  acquired guard  John
 Moffitt  from  the Seattle Seahawks  on Tuesday,  one day after an agreed-upon
 deal with the Cleveland Browns for the former third-round pick was voided.
 
 According  to the Cleveland  Plain Dealer, Moffitt -- who had been sent to the
 Browns  by the Seahawks Monday in exchange for defensive lineman Brian Sanford
 -- failed a physical.
 
 Seattle then turned around and traded the third-year pro to Denver for reserve
 defensive tackle Sealver Siliga.
 
 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.  He  joins  a Broncos  squad  that  has dealt  with
 injuries  along the  interior of the offensive line, with starting center J.D.
 Walton  sidelined until possibly midseason while recovering from ankle surgery
 and intended replacement Dan Koppen tearing his ACL early in training camp.
 
 Siliga,  an undrafted  free agent, spent his rookie season of 2011 on Denver's
 practice squad and was active for only one game with the Broncos last year.
