Moeller has been with the Browns since the beginning of last season.Browns left tackle Joe Thomas told the team that Moeller was "dealing with some personal things" and he "might be gone for a while." Whatever optimism there might be in such a scenario, Thomas found it. "I think if it's going to happen to any group, it's probably, not that it's good that it happened to the O-line, but the amount of guys in the offensive line room that have started a lot of games, have played a lot of football, are really smart guys, that will really help make sure we don't miss a beat,'' he told Cleveland.com. Moeller's father, Gary Moeller, was fired as Michigan coach after an alcohol-related incident that university leaders felt tarnished the school's image.
