Moses signs mul­ti­year ex­ten­sion with Red­skins

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

The Red­skins signed right tackle Mor­gan Moses to a 5-year ex­ten­sion.

The ex­ten­sion would make Moses the se­cond-high­est paid right tackle in the league, ac­cord­ing to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. That could vault Moses into the $10 mil­lion per year range.

Moses, a thir­dround pick of the Red­skins from Vir­ginia in 2014, de­vel­oped into a player who started ev­ery game over the last two sea­sons as Wash­ing­ton’s of­fense flour­ished.

He would have reached free agency in 2018 and com­manded big money on the open mar­ket, par­tic­u­larly as he has the abil­ity to play on the left as well as the right. Moses played some left tackle in 2014, his first year in the NFL.

As a midround pick who was con­sid­ered a de­vel­op­men­tal prospect, Moses’ Draft Day ex­ten­sion serves as a re­minder of what solid draft­ing can do for a team.
