The New York Jets officially signed veteran right tackle Morgan Moses on Friday.

Previous reports said Moses agreed to a one-year, $3.6 million deal that could be worth up to $5.3 million if he plays 80 percent of the team’s snaps in 2021.

Moses, 30, was released by the Washington Football Team in May. He started every game at right tackle over the past six seasons for Washington.

Washington reportedly saved $7.75 million by releasing Moses, who signed a five-year, $38.5 million deal prior in April 2017.

Overall, he has started 97 of 104 games played since entering the NFL with Washington in 2014. He played college football at Virginia and was a third-round draft selection.
