Two weeks ago, the Washington Football Team released longtime starting right tackle Morgan Moses. Although he hasn’t signed a new contract just yet, there are a few teams interested in him.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Chicago Bears are hosting Moses for a visit this Tuesday. This is the second visit that Moses will take since being released by Washington.
Last week, the New York Jets brought Moses in to see whether he’d be a good fit for their locker room. They already have a future star at left tackle in Mekhi Becton, but they could use another quality offensive tackle.
Chicago also needs another offensive lineman to bolster that position group. General manager Ryan Pace added a potential starter at offensive tackle in this year’s draft, selecting Oklahoma State product Teven Jenkins in the second round. However, there is not much depth at that position right now.

Moses, 30, still has some gas left in the tank. He might not be the most dominant offensive tackle in the NFL, but there’s no doubt that he’s reliable.
Since 2015, Moses has started every game for Washington. Almost all of those starts have taken place at right tackle.
In the event the Bears or Jets sign Moses before training camp, they’ll be adding a lot of experience and leadership to their locker room. Those are two qualities that every coach values.
