The Denver Broncos activated center J.D. Walton and placed guard John Moffitt on the reserve/left squad list for not reporting from the bye week, the team announced Tuesday. Moffitt later said he has decided to quit playing football.
Moffitt, 27, told Dave Softy Mahler of Sports Radio 950 KJR that he's giving up football and that he has already informed the Broncos that he's calling it a career.
"I'm ready to live a different kind of life," Moffitt said.
Moffitt, a third-year player from Wisconsin, was acquired in a preseason trade with the Seahawks. He had been inactive for six of the Broncos' eight games this season.
Walton was a 2010 third-round draft pick who started the first 36 games of his career before being lost for the season after the fourth game last year.
