The Cleveland Browns made a move to address the injuries hitting at the interior of their offensive line.
The team acquired guard/center John Moffitt from the Seattle Seahawks on Monday in exchange for defensive lineman Brian Sanford.
"John's a tough and versatile lineman who will be in the mix for us upfront," Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said.
Moffitt, 26, gives the Browns another option at guard following injuries to Shawn Lauvao (ankle surgery) and Jason Pinkston (high ankle sprain). Both Lauvao and Pinkston are expected to be sidelined into the regular season, making Moffitt a favorite to open the season as a starter.
Moffitt started 15 games over the last two seasons for the Seahawks, including six in 2012.
