(AP) — The Denver Broncos have agreed to a four-year, $44 million free agent contract with offensive guard Graham Glasgow, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said Monday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because deals cannot become official until the start of the NFL’s new calendar year on Wednesday.ESPN first reported the agreement, which includes $26 million in guaranteed money. March 16, 2020 AP Source: Broncos agree to $44 million deal with Glasgowcenter_img Although the versatile Glasgow can also play center and Broncos incumbent Connor McGovern is set to hit free agency, Glasgow will get his first look at guard following the Broncos’ decision to cut ties with oft-injured right guard Ronald Leary.Glasgow has started 58 games in four season with the Detroit Lions, who drafted him in the third round out of Michigan in 2016. He played left and right guard his rookie season as well as some center and has mostly played center since then.Broncos general manager John Elway has made bolstering his O-line an offseason priority, and teaming the 27-year-old Glasgow with second-year left guard Dalton Risner gives Denver one of the best young tandems in the league.The Broncos are counting on their headliner from last year’s free agent class, right tackle Ja’Wuan James, to bounce back from a balky knee that limited him to just three appearances in 2019. Their left tackle, Garett Bolles, has been flagged 46 times in 48 career games but showed some improvement down the stretch as rookie QB Drew Lock won four of his five starts. ___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6last_img read more

Women’s soccer: Wisconsin returns home to host Purdue

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team is coming off Sunday’s disappointing 1-0 loss against the Scarlet Knights. This was their second game this season without putting the ball in the net.The team is now in the midst of a 0-2-1 three-game stretch against Michigan, Maryland and Rutgers after having won the previous seven games, including two Big Ten matchups. The Badgers now sit at 8-3-1 overall and have now dropped to No. 26 in the NCAA rankings after having spent much of the first part of the season ranked in the top 25. They look to recover from their broken winning streak and get their season back on track Friday night against the Purdue Boilermakers in Madison. This is a much needed return to campus after being unable to win their previous two games on the road. The Purdue Boilermakers womens team is currently an impressive 9-2-1 including 4-0-1 in the Big Ten with wins over Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, and Illinois. The NCAA has them ranked at 28, just two spots behind the Badgers. They are led in goals by Maddy Williams, who leads the Big Ten currently with nine goals as well to go along with an impressive eight assists. Their second top offensive player so far has been Andrea Petrina who has contributed heavily to the Boilermakers offense with five goals and four assists thus far. This offense should prove to be a challenge for the Badgers defense, who have performed well this season. The Badgers have shut out six teams in their 12 games played, which is a testament to how well Caitlyn Clem and the defense have been playing. The Badgers are led in scoring by sophomore Dani Rhodes with eight goals and Lauren Rice with three goals.The game will be played at 7 p.m. on Friday evening at McClimon Soccer Complex and will be available to watch on Big Ten Network Plus. Tune in to watch the Badgers attempt to get their season back on track in the second half of the season.last_img read more
