Sources say the Baltimore Ravens reached agreements with safety Marcus Williams and offensive tackle Morgan Moses on Tuesday.

The Ravens found a safety in Williams and a right tackle in Moses.

A source told Jeremy Fowler that Baltimore and Williams had an agreement on a five-year, $70 million deal. A source told Adam that the deal includes $37 million and $32 million in the next year.

The Ravens agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal with Moses. The move was reported by The Athletic.

The New Orleans Saints used the franchise tag on safety Marcus Williams last season after the two sides were unable to work out a long-term deal.

Since Williams arrived in New Orleans, the Saints' defense has improved greatly, ranking sixth in the league in both yards and points allowed. In the regular season, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder has 15 career picks, including one for a touchdown in 2019. He has made over 300 tackles and has three forced turnovers.

Although he has never been selected to a Pro Bowl or an All-Pro team, Williams is one of the league's top safeties. He has been graded among the league's top seven safeties in each of the past three seasons by Pro Football Focus.

Williams missed a tackle against the Minnesota Vikings in the playoffs at the end of his first year. He recorded a career-high 74 tackles in 2021. The Ravens struggled to defend the pass last season.

The Baltimore Ravens allowed the most passing yards, yards per reception and average yards after the catch in the NFL last season. The pass defense gave up a franchise-worst 31 touchdown passes.

Baltimore has a strong investment in its secondary. Over the past three years, the Ravens have invested over 70 million in guaranteed money in the defensive backfield: Humphrey, Peters, and Chuck Clark.

The Ravens have not made a lot of splashes in free agency, but they usually do it for a safety. Earl Thomas and Eric Weddle were signed by Baltimore. Weddle was one of the best free-agent additions, but Thomas was cut after an altercation with a teammate at training camp.

After addressing the secondary, the Ravens turned their attention to the offensive line that gave up the most sacks in the league. Since his second season with Washington in 2015, Moses has played in 113 consecutive games, making him one of the most durable players in the league. He missed one start for the Jets in the season opener.

After signing a one-year, $3.6 million contract last June, Moses was placed into a competition with George Fant at right tackle. After a close battle in the preseason, the coaches decided to go with Fant.

The Jets moved Fant to left tackle in Week 1 when Mekhi Becton went down with a knee injury. He started the last 16 games and was praised for his leadership.

According to research,Moses ranked 16th in pass-block win rate. The Jets ran the ball well over the final eight weeks, finishing second in the league in yards per carry.

He was cleared after the last game because of a knee injury, but was told he didn't need surgery. The big man said he has a lot of football left to play.

Baltimore had a problem with the right tackle last season. Four linemen played at least 60 snaps at right tackle for the Ravens.
