Ian Rapoport reports that Moses is signing a one-year contract worth $3.6 million worth up to $5.3 million based on whether he plays 80 percent of the team’s snaps.
Reports had said that the Jets were making progress on a one-year contract with Moses, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
The Bears had also been linked to Moses since he was released by Washington, but it was clear that the Jets were the team to beat in the end.
Moses, 30, is a former third-round pick by Washington back in 2014. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.05 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $800,000 for the 2017 season when he signed a five-year, $40 million extension.
Washington released Moses with two years remaining on his deal this offseason.
In 2020, Moses appeared in all 16 games for Washington and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 18 offensive tackle out of 79 qualifying players.
