Right tackle Morgan Moses is making his return to the New York Jets, ESPN reported Wednesday.

Moses, who played in 17 games (16 starts) for New York in 2021, is headed to the Jets in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens. The teams are swapping fourth-round picks (New York receives No. 134 overall; Baltimore No. 112) and the Ravens will also pick up a sixth-round selection (No. 218) in the same draft.

The trade cannot be finalized until the start of the new league year on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.

The Jets also acquired former Ravens free agent John Simpson earlier in the week to be their starting left guard.

Moses, 33, has started 144 of the 152 games in which he has played with the Washington franchise (2014-20), Jets (2021) and Ravens. He started all 17 games for Baltimore in 2022 and 14 in 2023.

The Jets are also re-signing punter Thomas Morstead to a two-year deal worth more than $5 million, per reports.

Morstead, 38, led the NFL in punts (99) and yards (4,831) with New York last season. He has played in 238 games with four teams since entering the league with the New Orleans Saints as a 2009 fifth-round pick.
