Former Michigan football OL signs extension with Detroit Lions

It began as a feel-good story, with former Michigan football walk-on-turned-scholarship player Graham Glasgow staying in metro Detroit by getting drafted by the local Detroit Lions in 2016. After a couple of standout years with the local franchise, however, when Glasgow became a free agent, the powers that be at the time did not make him a priority, and he ended up moving on to the Denver Broncos.

However, under general manager Brad Holmes, the Lions got Glasgow back and he played an integral role as a starting right guard in 2023. And it looks like he’ll remain with the franchise that drafted him for the foreseeable.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Detroit is resigning Glasgow to a three-year, $20 million contract with $9.5 million guaranteed.

2024 will mark Glasgow’s ninth year in the NFL and sixth with the Detroit Lions.

Hailing from Aurora, Illinois, he was the first of three brothers who all came to Michigan football as a walk-on but ended up leaving not only as a scholarship player, but as an NFL draft pick. However, the eldest Glasgow is the only brother remaining in the professional ranks at this juncture.
