Broncos add defensive end Sanford

Denver signed former Browns and Raiders defensive end Brian Sanford (6-2, 280) on Tuesday. He joins a long list of players who were first signed by Tom Heckert in Cleveland, and again with the Broncos.

Undrafted out of Temple in 2010, Sanford saw 108 snaps last season for Oakland and Cleveland, grading out at -2.5 according to PFF. He was officially credited with four tackles and four assists in seven games, including one start.

A year ago, the Browns agreed to send Sanford to Seattle in exchange for John Moffitt, but rescinded the deal when Moffitt failed his physical.

Shortly thereafter, Denver traded Sealver Siliga to Seattle in exchange for Moffitt, who retired in November and accused the Browns of having played dirty with his physical.

In March, Moffitt was arrested at a Chicago nightclub on battery and drug charges.

Meanwhile, Siliga was cut by Seattle and ended up in New England, where he thrived to the tune of a +5.5 PFF grade over 328 snaps.
