Morgan Moses, Baltimore Ravens, Agree to Contract
Moses came to the Jets after opting for a one-year deal in free agency last offseason. He started 16/17 games and played 94% of the team’s offensive snaps. Pro Football Reference charged him with three penalties and four sacks, both low marks for his career.
Moses spent his first seven seasons in Washington after being drafted by the team in the third round of the 2014 draft. Moses only started one game as a rookie and missed a significant portion of the season due to a lisfranc injury. This ended with him being placed on injured reserve. He came back strong in 2015 and won the starting right tackle job. He would hold down this position until his release from the team in 2021. After fellow starter Cornelius Lucas went down with an injury in 2020, Moses was able to swap over to the left tackle spot for three games.
Moses is a balanced tackle when looking at his PFF grades throughout his career. From 2015 to 2021 he only graded < 65 at run blocking once, with an elite 85.9 in 2020 as his best mark. As a pass blocker, he averaged a 70 grade in the same time span. His first two seasons as a starter saw his overall grade rank 18th and 27th among tackles, but he dipped to an average rank of 46 from 2017 to 2019. 2o2o saw him jump back up to 18th again, before settling in at 40th in 2021.
He is also an iron man, having played in every game since his second season. His snap percentage has never been below 91% since becoming a starter.
One weakness in his game is his tendency to commit a lot of penalties. Excluding his year with the Jets, he was frequently among the most penalized players at his position. Per PFF he was the second most penalized tackle in both 2015 and 2018.
