Eagles Sign Veteran Guard John Moffitt
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed guard John Moffitt to a one-year contract and released guard Cole Manhart.
Moffitt most recently appeared in two games for the Denver Broncos during the 2013 season before retiring to deal with personal issues.
Moffitt (6-4, 319) was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of Wisconsin. Moffitt, 28, appeared in 17 games (15 starts) for the Seahawks over his first two seasons in the league. He started 42 of 45 games during his career at Wisconsin, splitting time between center and left guard.
He could be in the mix at right guard with Matt Tobin, Andrew Gardner and Dennis Kelly or battle Allen Barbre on the left side where he has played mostly since entering the league and also adds some depth at center.
An undrafted free agent signee of the Eagles in 2015, Manhart played collegiately at Nebraska-Kearney where he appeared in 44 games (33 starts).
