Broncos OC Pat Shurmur praised recently signed G Graham Glasgow and was thrilled when he decided to sign with Denver.
“Graham Glasgow, he is a solid football player and he’s been very, very productive,” Shurmur said, via Jon Heath of BroncosWire. “I’ve watched him play throughout his career and obviously, my years in Minnesota watching him. When he was available and he decided he wanted to come here, we were thrilled.”
Shurmur believes Glasgow has been a consistently strong interior offensive lineman throughout his career.
“He’s an interior player that has done an outstanding job,” Shurmur said. “When you can bring a guy that’s done it very well for a very long time and add him to your lineup, I think that’ll be helpful.”
Shurmur added that Glasgow has proven successful in both run and pass protection.
“That experience there will help us, along with the fact that he’s an outstanding pass blocker as well as a run blocker.”
- Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that Jets S Jamal Adams‘ future contract demands are a large factor in possible trade negotiations with other teams.
- Fowler, citing a source from a team that has “looked into” acquiring Adams, adds that safety is expected to demand “well above” $20 million per year.
- Fowler notes that an annual contract of $20 million would be difficult for him to achieve given the current market at his position is below $15 million.
- Adams, who recently requested a trade from New York, wrote to a follower on Instagram: “It’s time to move on. Let it go. Appreciate you guys. No hard feelings. Nothin but luv.”
- The Athletic’s Vic Tafur notes with a crowded depth chart, Raiders CBs Isaiah Johnson, Nevin Lawson and Keisean Nixon may be battling for one roster spot.
- Tafur adds undrafted rookie CB Madre Harper has been turning some heads during virtual OTAs and could push for a practice squad spot at the least.
- At wide receiver, Tafur believes Nelson Agholor, Zay Jones, Rico Gafford, Keelan Doss and Marcell Ateman are competing for one or two spots to round out the roster.
- Raiders owner Mark Davis says he hasn’t been the reason the team hasn’t signed QB Colin Kaepernick: “Since 2017, I’ve told the coaches and general managers that if they want to hire Colin Kaepernick, they have my blessing.” (Paul Gutierrez)
