Ravens trading OT Morgan Moses to Jets: Sources

The New York Jets are acquiring tackle Morgan Moses from the Baltimore Ravens, team sources confirmed to The Athletic.

The Jets are receiving Moses and a fourth-round pick in this year’s draft in exchange for a fourth- and sixth-round pick.

Moses, 33, has spent the past two season with the Ravens starting 31 out of a possible 34 games. He spent one season with the Jets in 2021 and appeared in all 17 games that season, starting 16.

The veteran tackle was a third round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Washington Commanders. He spent seven seasons with Washington and started every game in his last six with the franchise.

Why the Ravens made the move

Ravens decision makers made clear that they viewed solidifying the offensive line as one of their offseason priorities. They wanted to get younger and more athletic upfront. Moses played well for the Ravens over the past two seasons, but he’s just turned 33 and he battled through an arm/shoulder injury for much of last season. Moving on from him should allow the Ravens to get a bit younger upfront and it also creates much-needed $5.5 million of salary cap savings. — Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens beat writer
