Eagles Officially Sign G John Moffitt, Waive OL Cole Manhart

The Philadelphia Eagles announced the signing of G John Moffitt to a one-year contract on Monday.

  • The Eagles placed OL Cole Manhart on waivers to make room for Moffitt.

Ross Jones of FOX Sports first reported that the Eagles were set to sign Moffitt to a one-year contract last week.

According to Jones, Moffitt drew interest from several teams, but ultimately felt that the Eagles were his best fit and opportunity.

Moffitt decided to unretire from the NFL a few weeks ago and the Broncos granted him his release.

After becoming available, Jones mentioned that Moffitt the Eagles, Dolphins, Buccaneers, Jets and Texans were likely to show “strong interest” in signing him to a contract.

Moffitt, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2011. He spent just two years in Seattle before he was later traded to the Broncos in return for DL Brian Sanford.

Seattle tried to trade him to the Browns, but that deal fell through after injury concerns were raised regarding this injured knee.

Moffitt last appeared in an NFL game during the 2013 season while playing for the Broncos.
