AP Source: Broncos agree to $44 million deal with Glasgow

first_img Associated Press Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditENGLEWOOD, Colo. (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

(AP Photo/Steve Dykes)ExpandPORTLAND, Ore. — The Clippers remain desperate to make the playoffs, but the problem is they don’t always play that way from the opening tip.“If you’re desperate to get wins like we are to extend our season and play in the postseason like we are, we’ve got to have a sense of urgency from the start of the game,” Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said.Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic and Damian Lillard had no such problem on Friday night. Nurkic had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Lillard added 17 points and 11 assists, and the Trail Blazers held off the Clippers 105-96 on Friday night.“We understand each other,” Nurkic said. “Every possession, we already know where we’re going to be and how we’re going to play. When we look at each other we already know what we’re going to do.” The first half was a highlight reel of dunks for the Blazers, who led 64-49 at the break.Portland coach Terry Stotts sees the connection between Nurkic and Lillard that Nurkic spoke of too.“I thought Damian was terrific with his passing. He found Nurk. They kept trapping him and he found Nurk almost every time,” Stotts said. “Someone asked me before the game about getting Nurk more shots. I think Dame is responsible for getting Nurk some shots.”Rookie Zach Collins came off the bench with a career-high 15 points for the Blazers, who were hurt in the third quarter when Ed Davis rolled his right ankle and left the game.Portland remains in third place in the West, coming off a 2-1 road trip that ended with a 108-103 loss at Memphis on Wednesday night. But the Blazers played that game without Lillard, who was awaiting the birth of his first child. Damian Lillard Jr. was born Thursday morning.“I don’t think there’s any way to describe it. It’s a different level, different type of excitement. It was my son looking into my eyes. It was different,” Lillard said Friday.But his joy was tempered because his half-brother was shot multiple times in the parking lot of a Portland-area shopping mall on Thursday night. Lillard said 20-year-old Jahrell Lillard was in stable condition. Police continue to look for the suspects.“I just tried to go out there and have fun, clear my mind. I didn’t want to drag my personal things into the locker room or on to the court,” Lillard said. “I had a son, that’s a great thing. It was an unfortunate thing with my brother but he survived it, so a lot to be thankful for.”Collins had three dunks in the second quarter to finish the first half with 13 points, topping his career high for a game. The Blazers had 17 assists in the first half.Al-Farouq Aminu’s layup and free throw put Portland up 74-51 early in the second half. But Davis headed to the locker room later in the third quarter. The Blazers said after the game that X-rays on the ankle were negative.Portland was already playing without starter Maurice Harkless, who had a minor procedure on his left knee on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.TIP-INSClippers: L.A. had won three straight in Portland. … Austin Rivers struggled, going 1 for 8 from the floor.Trail Blazers: A reporter quipped that Lillard’s newborn son had a stack of his signature shoes waiting for him. “Nothing but the finest,” Lillard laughed. … Portland had 30 assists, matching it season high.UP NEXTClippers: Host the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.Trail Blazers: Host the Grizzlies on Sunday. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Clippers, who are just outside the playoff picture in the West with six games left. Lou Williams led the Clippers with 23 points.After trailing by as many as 23 points in the third quarter, the Clippers got within 92-80 early in the fourth, prompting Lillard to return to the game. The Clippers narrowed the gap again to 102-94 with just under a minute left but Pat Connaughton answered for the Blazers with a 3-pointer on the other end.The Clippers were short-handed. The team announced earlier Friday that Milos Teodosic has a torn plantar fascia in his left foot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. Already missing were Avery Bradley (abdominal surgery) and Patrick Beverley (knee).But the Clippers saw the return of Danilo Gallinari, who had missed 18 games with a fractured right hand. Gallinari finished with 11 points.“I just thought Portland was the better team. I thought they were better coached, I thought the players played better, I thought they played harder. And that’s disappointing,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

OMB Certifies First Built Green® Houseboat

first_imgFacebook3Tweet0Pin0Olympia, WA – The Olympia Master Builders Built Green® Program certified its first houseboat to Level 3 Built Green® last week.  According to Built Green third party verifier Pam Worner of Green Dog Enterprises, this is the first houseboat in Washington State to be certified Built Green.  “This is what Built Green is all about,” said the OMB Built Green Committee Chair Tina Allen, “providing homeowners with resource-efficient homes that are cost-effective to own and operate – even on the water!”When houseboat builder and resident Mike Auderer of Olympia Construction began planning to downsize from a three-story Victorian house to the 550-square foot houseboat, he had efficiency and the environment in mind.  From using nontoxic materials and recycling job site waste to using high efficiency windows and hot water heater, Auderer kept his green bases covered.                 Auderer was ecstatic when Built Green third party verifier Worner told him his houseboat would qualify for certification.  “I can’t wait to start my next project,” says Auderer.  “Armed with what I have learned from going through the certification process, my next houseboat will score even higher.”  Auderer plans to have the houseboat available for public tours during the OMB Tour of Homes in August and the BIG Home and Garden Show in September.  (Visit www.omb.org for event details.)The OMB Built Green Program’s rating system has 5 levels, all of which are verified by an independent third party.  The program focuses on cutting energy bills, improving indoor health, reducing water usage and ensuring that homes are built to last.last_img read more
