The Washington Redskins have reached an agreement on a five-year contract extension with right tackle Morgan Moses, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan report.
Moses’ new deal makes him the second-highest-paid right tackle in the NFL behind the Eagles’ Lane Johnson, who currently is under contract for $11.25 million per year. The Detroit Lions signed Rick Wagner to a deal worth $9.25 million earlier this offseason.
Moses entered the NFL as a third-round pick in 2014 and became a full-time starter in his second season. His play early in the ’15 training camp enabled the Redskins to move fifth overall pick Brandon Scherff to guard. Last season, Moses established himself as one of the better right tackles, playing alongside Scherff.
Moses would have been one of three potential unrestricted free agents next offseason on the Redskins’ o-line. Center Spencer Long and left guard Shawn Lauvao also are entering the final year of their contracts.
