John Moffit returning to NFL
 
Report: Ex-Broncos guard John Moffitt to return to NFL


Former Denver Broncos guard John Moffitt will attempt to make a return after battling drug issues.
Moffitt abruptly retired in 2013, saying he was "ready to live a different kind of life."

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported on Wednesday that after battling a drug issue, the 28-year-old blocker has gotten clean and wants to return to the NFL.

"I have never been so proud of a guy I've trained than I am of John Moffitt," Glazer wrote on Twitter. "Retired two years ago (because) he knew he had drug issues, took time to go to rehab, clean up his life, beat his demons and he has taken his life back! Guy inspires us every day. He came to me three months ago at (Glazer's gym) Unbreakable to train to take his career back. He's become the favorite of every player in our gym. He officially un-retired today. Free agent starting guard. So proud of him to get here."

The Broncos announced that they released Moffitt on Wednesday.

After his retirement in 2013, Moffit said the NFL made him feel like a commodity and he questioned the long-term health of players. His life unraveled from there with partying, alcohol and drugs at the center -- including several run-ins with the law. The New York Times wrote a fascinating in-depth look at his life last November.

"Amazing how this guy took his life back. He's taught us in the gym a bunch about beating your demons," Glazer added about Moffitt's recovery.

The former third-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks started 15 games in the Upper Northwest before being traded to the Broncos in August 2013. Appearing in just two games in Denver, he retired less than three months later.

Now Moffitt will attempt to battle his way back into the NFL

Funny how this guy tried to put it on the NFL saying it was a health thing. I guess it was. But not because of concussions.... Because of his use of weed, coke, and amphetamines.

Yep. I remember him going on radio shows whining about it. Good job on utilizing his time away.

Well, he went to rehab and he wants to play. He was quite good with the Broncos see how 2 years away affects him.

Oh yeah.. Ray Rice ****ing decked his fiance in an elevator knocking her the **** out. How are they even related?

And one last thing. Rice would be playing today if he hadn't averaged 3.2 yards per carry his last year in the NFL.

Moffitt lied in 2013. He didn't even own up to his problems. He blamed them on NFL culture. He doesn't deserve a second chance. I hope he has to settle for an AFL2 gig because that the right place for no integrity bums like Moffitt.

Rice's body of work is enough to warrant a second chance. A subpar YPC can also be offensive line-related. Rice wasn't playing behind Kubiak's and Dennison's well-oiled front of 2014.

Or...it could just mean he simply realized he can make way more money playing a game than working a crap job, so he might as well try.

So just to be clear, people who lie don't deserve second chances?

Lying is pretty damn low. Sure he deserves a chance but good luck finding one. This dip**** acts like it's easy to land a NFL job. It's hard to get a 90-man roster spot. Two years later and he has to compete with a younger crop of players, many of whom have no substance issues or a self-induced hiatus from the game. **** him.

Ray Rice is a PR nightmare. That's why he don't have a job.

I mean, If the Ravens release you for an off the field incident.... wow..... lol

Moffit realizes that even though he might not like being an NFL player, he sure likes the big paycheck.

So Moffitt is a bum and Rice should be playing.... so How many women have you beaten?
