The Philadelphia Eagles announced the singing of guard John Moffitt on Monday. The signing of Moffitt will add much needed depth on the offensive line.
During his rookie season Moffitt suffered a knee injury after his ninth start and miss the rest of the year. During that time he was suspended for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing policy. After returning from suspension in 2012, Moffitt was involved in multiple off-the-field issues.
He was traded to the Denver Broncos in 2013 and played in just two games. Moffitt then decided that he had had enough of football and suddenly retired. He said he was not wiling to put his body on the line for money and that he was not happy playing football.
Moffitt has been working with FOX's NFL insider Jay Glazer, who also trains professional athletes. Glazer tweeted that he is proud of Moffitt for deciding to come back to the NFL and thinks he is physically ready for a return to football.Read more... Join the Conversation...
