Just talked to John Moffitt. He's giving up football. Told the @DenverBroncos two days ago. "I'm ready to live a different kind of life."— Dave Softy Mahler (@Softykjr) November 5, 2013
Former Wisconsin and Denver Broncos offensive lineman John Moffitt is quitting football, according to Dave Softy Mahler of Sportsradio 950 KJR in Seattle. Moffitt didn't return to the Broncos after their bye, and the Denver Post's Mike Klis reported earlier Tuesday that Moffitt was frustrated by a perceived lack of playing time and "doing some soul searching." Indeed, Klis adds that Moffitt has now been placed on the Broncos' reserve/left squad list. Moffitt was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He was traded to Denver in August.
