The Jets continue to look for upgrades on the offensive line, with news coming out today that they hosted former Washington Football Team tackle Morgan Moses last week for a visit according to Ian Rapoport.

As things stand, it’s expected that George Fant will start for the Jets at right tackle.

Morgan, who has started 97 games for Washington since he entered the league as a 3rd round pick back in 2014 does offer vast experience at the position, something that the Jets could covet with a young left side and a rookie signal-caller.

Moses enjoyed one of his best seasons last year according to PFF, where he was rated at 80.6 overall. His run-blocking grade of 85.9 is particularly eye-catching.

A career Right Tackle, he did slow the ability to slide over and cover the LT position in 2020 when Cornelius Lucas was injured towards the end of the season.

Moses has released earlier this off-season after Washington drafted Texas tackle Sam Cosmi in the 2nd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Originally Washington were looking to trade the veteran tackle, but after failing to find a suitor, they ended up releasing him. Ron Rivera spoke about the release last week after OTA’s:

“Nothing other than we’re just going in a different direction. We have an opportunity to get some young guys on the field,” Rivera said. ”We went out and brought in a veteran left tackle. So, feel very comfortable with those decisions because of the players we have on the roster right now...They’re both (Geron Christian & Moses) very good players, they were good players for us and they’ll continue to be good players in the league,”
