The Washington Football Team will reportedly be releasing both of their Week 1 starting offensive tackles. Morgan Moses was given permission to seek a trade, but the market must have been cold for a player who started 96 straight games and came with a 2 year/$15 million contract. Moses now has a chance to sign with a team looking for help on the line(looking at you Denver). He will likely sign a 1-year deal since he is entering free agency after the draft and in a reduced cap year.
Geron Christian Sr got a chance to start at left tackle last year, but was replaced by free agent signing Cornelius Lucas after an injury. Lucas held on to the job through Washington’s playoff game, and has a spot locked in for this season. He is projected to compete with 2nd round rookie Sam Cosmi at RT, and possibly his former Chicago Bears teammate Charles Leno Jr at left tackle.
Washington explored trade options for Christian, a 2018 third-round pick and last season's Week 1 starter, but couldn't find a viable deal. Would imagine Christian has several options in free agency if not claimed in waivers.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) May 20, 2021
Still leaves WFT with a deep group of tackles.
