Moffitt is 6-foor-4, 319 pounds and in his third season in the NFL. He played college ball at Wisconsin, so, hey, maybe him and Joe Thomas can go fishing with D'Arcy Eagen and become BFFs? Moffitt was a redshirt freshman Thomas' senior year. Also, here's hoping Moffitt can block as half as good as Thomas.
Moffitt was a third-round pick by Seattle in the 2011 NFL Draft and started the first nine games that season before a knee injury sidelined him for the rest of the year.
Last year, he started four games at right guard and two at left guard.
Originally Seattle's third-round pick (75th overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft, Moffitt started the first nine games of his rookie campaign before a season-ending knee injury.
Last season, he started four games at right guard and two at left guard.

"Moffitt is the 11th player acquired by the Browns in 2013 who is either 26 or 27 years old."
