According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Denver Broncos reworked the contract of the veteran guard, Graham Glasgow. Per Yates, they have reduced his base salary from $8.4 million dollars to $3.1 million dollars with an opportunity to make $1.4 million in play-time incentives.

Glasgow is coming off an injury-filled season that limited him to just seven games this past season. Glasgow was taken by ambulance to the hospital after the opener because of a heart condition. He was later diagnosed with atrial fibrillation which sidelined him for week two. He later suffered a fractured leg during the week nine victory over the Dallas Cowboys that ended up sidelining him for the remainder of the 2021 season.

This allowed second-year guard Netane Muti and rookie Quinn Meinerz to receive playing time throughout the year in his absence. This made Glasgow a potential cap casualty this upcoming offseason, but for now, the Broncos decided to keep him on the roster at a reduced rate.

If he does stay on the roster throughout the offseason, he will compete at the guard position and potentially push Lloyd Cushenberry at the center position as well.
