BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Browns have acquired offensive lineman John Moffitt in a trade from Seattle for defensive lineman Brian Sanford.

Cleveland needed an experienced guard after losing Shawn Lauvao and Jason Pinkston to ankle injuries in the past week. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Moffitt is a “tough and versatile lineman who will be in the mix for us up front.”

The 6-foot-4, 319-pound Moffitt made 15 starts over the past two seasons. He started the final six games — four at right guard, two at left — last season, helping Seattle earn a spot in the NFC playoffs.

The Seahawks drafted Moffitt in the third round in 2011. He started his first nine games as a rookie before sustaining a season-ending knee injury.

Sanford played in six games the past three seasons for Cleveland.
