Protecting the blindside is the most important factor in building an O-Line, for Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa that would be the RT position, if you read my article on ‘3 free agents that need a blank check‘ then you know how I feel about Trent Brown.
Brown is one of the best talents in the market but injury history and weight does make him an odd fit for Mike McDaniel’s offense, enter scene Morgan Moses; RT from the New York Jets.
Moses is 30 years old but has been an ironman his entire career, playing and starting in every single game since 2015 until November 2021. Moses would suffer an injury vs the Dolphins ironically, but only missed 1 game before returning to action.
The injury ended up being an MCL sprain which Moses will not need surgery for, great news for his recovery process and any team trying to sign him.
Morgan Moses played 16 of 17 games in 2021, through this time he went through 1,022 offensive snaps, 4 sacks, but only 3 penalties. The Jets are a rebuilding team so not excelling in a below average offensive line doesn’t make you a bad player. But being above average in it definitely sparks my interest.
Jesse Davis could easily be charged for war crimes for some of the blocking efforts he had to protect Tua Tagovailoa in 2021. In 2022 the upgrade at the RT position is the biggest need for the Dolphins offense.
Moses’ resume speaks for itself and teams seem to be focused on bigger name brands like Terron Amstead, Orlando Brown, and others. Which does not put this player in a position to be overpaid, and with the Dolphins $65 Million dollars in cap space Moses should be a no brainer for the Dolphins brass. Bring him home.
