Versatile by the sounds of it.

Paying a premium for a solid, versatile offensive lineman. Played 62 of a possible 64 games in his career.

Gives them flexibility going into the draft too. I think they'd be okay going into the season with Risner-Glasgow-Wilkinson. But the second round could also be a sweet spot to take a center and kick Glasgow to RG.

He'll be an upgrade from Leary, his sturdiness and ability to stay on the field is important to keeping Drew Lock upright and healthy

Apparently his best season was at RG. Very solid, no sacks just 3 hurries.

Center could be a battle between our two TCU centers, Schlottman and Morris.

seems like a solid deal money wise for the first day of free agency

Or pick Ruiz in the second, solidify that line up.

It's a calculated risk, but frankly, if there's a reason to be optimistic besides having Munchak - it's Glasgow's both been durable AND he's still young.    Entering his age-27, there's every reason to hope he will still be at peak levels of play for 2021-23, and the first 2 years, which are fully guaranteed.

Now, he is a FAR better player in a zone blocking scheme; he really struggled in a man/gap scheme in his sophomore year.    But he's got the footwork / agility and smarts to help overcome some of his power deficiencies.  And he's a pretty clear upgrade on a declining Leary (duh).   

Now, the $ is steep - that's the reality with the cap $ increases.   I'm totally OK if this is the only major signing we make today or tomorrow (although I'm not going to object if we get a Hargraves/Reader either).   But the $ #'s are going to be a little nuts, it's why the cap figure of 50M is deceiving - we likely are getting maybe 1 more top-3 type FA at a key position, if Elway wants to make a splash - then I suspect we're hitting mid-level tier more for the rest.

I agree that this move also gives Elway the flexibility to get either a C or G on Day 2/Rd 4 at the draft.  I would not be surprised to see that go down at all.

From what I've seen, you probably don't get the push and power in the run game Leary provided early in his Broncos tenure before the injuries piled up, but Glasgow is rock solid in pass protection.
