Should we be interested?

Free agent OG John Moffitt wants to return to the NFL.
Moffitt, 28, retired in November 2013 due to drug issues. He's since cleaned up his life and has been training the past three months with an eye toward returning to the league. The former No. 75 overall pick in 2011 by the Seahawks, Moffitt was an All-American at offensive lineman-friendly Wisconsin. Moffitt (6-foot-4, 319) is a nasty mauler in the trenches who can play guard or center. Jun 17 - 11:30 AM

Edit: It seems that the Broncos still own his rights, but Glazer announced that they will release him. However, since he's still on his rookie contract, he will be subject to waivers.

I have no problem bringing this guy in to compete because at the very least, he is probably just as good or better than Konz, Gunn, Lefeld or Replogle. Since he is an ex- Seahawk, Quinn and Chris Morgan should know him well. He should also be familiar with the blocking scheme.

Actually, neither one ever came in contact with him. Morgan was with the Redskins, and Quinn was at Florida.

If he clears waivers the Bucs or Bill will grab him...... Dam...

I still don't understand what waivers are and why the Buccs seem to be the first to claim somebody and their momma off waivers. First D.J Swearinger (who I personally did not want he is a clown) TE Tim Wright (not a neccessary grab IMO) and if this pattern continues they might Moffit. A guy we need for either reliable depth or starter.

If you are on your rookie contract, then, when you are released, you are subject to waivers. What this means is that you are not a FA, but rather all 32 teams will first get a chance to take on your contract, before you would become an UFA. All teams can submit a claim, and the team with the highest claim number wins the player. The higher your draft pick was, the higher your claim number is. For example, we are currently #8 on the waiver wire.

That seems incredibly fair to all 32 teams and the player himself. Sounds the like the most ridiculous piece of **** I have seen yet. I think if a player gets released by a team, he should decide where he wants to go to next.

Falcons should take a flier on him. Especially with Holmes being hurt and just plain not that good. I know Holmes is an OT and Moffitt is a interior linemen. But they still have no replacement for Blalock. Moffitt was a stud and is still young.

Chris Chester is essentially Blalock's replacement.
