Morgan Moses Could Be Ravens' Most Vital Offseason Signing

NFL veteran will start at right tackle.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens made sure they would not be short-handed again at offensive tackle by signing Morgan Moses.

Moses, 31, is durable and has started every regular-season game in each of the past seven seasons. He is renowned for his blocking skills, especially in the run game and should be able to take over the starting spot at right tackle. 

Moses, 6-foot-6, 335 pounds, is also a smart player and committed just three penalties and allowed four sacks over 1,022 snaps. He spent seven seasons with Washington before signing with the New York Jets last year. 

"When I think of Morgan, the thoughts that I have [are] big, tough, very smart, and also very durable," Ravens GM Eric DeCosta said. "This is a guy that’s played and started in 115 games in his career. He’s a versatile guy who can play different spots. We’re excited to bring him here."

Moses, however, has never had stability at the quarterback position throughout his eight-year career.

There was a carousel of players during his time in Washington and with the Jets.

Now, Moses will finally have a franchise quarterback behind him with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. He's excited to be protecting such a dynamic player.

"Obviously, it’s a blessing to be able to block for Lamar," Moses said. "My whole career, I’ve averaged about five quarterbacks a season, so … To have one, just to have one, is amazing. So, I’m ready to go. I’m excited, man. I’m excited to run out of the tunnel for the first time, see the fans and just make this place home for us.”

The Ravens signed Moses to a three-year, $15 million deal at the beginning of free agency. He should be an immediate boost to an offensive line that struggled with injuries last season.

His goal now is to help take Jackson and the rest of the offense to a new level.

Jackson had a passer rating of 70.0 against the blitz in 2021, the fourth-lowest mark in the NFL, according to Next Gen Stats.

"How can I help Lamar?" Moses asked. "He’s throwing an out-route; can I set the guy a little bit wider so he can see that it creates a lane, and he can throw the ball in that lane? Those are the things that I think about – how can I help him, how can I help him see the safety rotation and things like that. That just comes with playing a lot of football over the course of the years. So, I’m hoping that my knowledge of the game that I’ve been taught and that I’ve seen over the years with Coach’s teaching and the offense that we have, Ronnie Stanley, all the guys that we have coming back, Mark Andrews, a great tight end.

"With that knowledge and putting it together, I’m hoping that it’s going to be a great fit. I know it’s going to be a great fit.”
