Former Seahawks and Broncos’ guard John Moffit made headlines this week for retiring from the NFL at the age of 27. Moffit made his rounds with the media this week to explain his decision to walk away from the fame and fortune of the NFL to “live a normal life.”
Moffit joined The Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning to explain his decision. After Moffit went on to explain his desire to work a regular nine to five job and be a normal member of society, Patrick pried the former Wisconsin lineman on the difficulty of walking away from a Super Bowl contender.
“I’ts easier I think to walk away from Jacksonville than it is Denver? Patrick asked.
To which Moffit responded, “Yeah it would have been easier to walk away from the Browns who I almost went to before I got traded to Denver. But in reality it didn’t make a difference to me because my heart’s not in it.”
The Browns acquired Moffitt earlier this season to provide some support at the depleted guard position, but the trade was voided by the NFL because of a failed physical due to a reportedly lingering knee issue. Moffitt returned to Seattle where he was later acquired by the Super Bowl-hopeful Denver Broncos.
