Brian Sanford DL CLE 7 Months

Browns signed DE Brian Sanford to a two-year contract.

Sanford has a history with the Browns as he was spent 2010-2012 with them appearing in six games and spending time on the practice squad. He was traded to the Seahawks in August, but the deal was voided when John Moffitt failed his physical. Sanford was then waived and landed with the Raiders, who cut him loose in November. Now the rotational end and special teamer is back where it all started.

Raiders claimed DL Brian Sanford off waivers from the Browns.

Again, they'll take what they can get. Sanford, 26, is a 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive line 'tweener at 6-foot-2 and 280 pounds. The Seahawks did try trading for Sanford in August, but the deal was rescinded when John Moffitt failed his Browns physical. Sanford will add depth to a pathetic Raiders D-Line.

NFL voided Seattle's acquisition of DL Brian Sanford from the Browns in exchange for OG John Moffitt.

Moffitt failed his physical, so Sanford's rights have reverted to the Browns. A situational run stuffer who was buried on the depth chart before his trade, Sanford appears unlikely to survive final cuts.

Seahawks acquired DL Brian Sanford from the Browns in exchange for OG John Moffitt.

A 6-foot-2, 280-pound situational run stuffer and special teamer, Sanford was buried in Cleveland behind Ahtyba Rubin, Desmond Bryant, Billy Wynn, and John Hughes. Sanford should be stretched to make Seattle's final 53-man roster.
