The NY Jets have quite a few impact players set to hit the open market in March. Most discussed among them have been All-Pro kick returner Braxton Berrios, defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi, and wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
One player that often gets missed in free agency discussions despite his stellar 2021 play, however, is offensive tackle Morgan Moses. Moses started at offensive tackle for Gang Green for all 17 games this past season, getting time at both the right and left tackle spots.
Moses signed a one-year contract with the Jets back in June of 2021 and has yet to be given a contract extension by general manager Joe Douglas.
As it currently stands, the Jets’ cap space ahead of the offseason is about $48 million per Over The Cap, and Douglas is going to need to spend almost all of it if he wants his 4-13 Jets to still be competing come December.
Should the Jets re-sign Moses and give him another season to provide solid depth or even potentially start at tackle again? Or should Douglas let Moses walk to retain some precious cap space?
Moses’ track record and the Jets’ QB situation point towards the former as the right choice.
