The Detroit Lions have signed Graham Glasgow, a fan-favorite, to a one-year deal worth up to $4.5 million. Glasgow has played in 99 NFL games and he can play all three interior offensive line positions, which sets a high standard for his potential role in Detroit. With the loss of Evan Brown, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks, Glasgow is his direct replacement and potentially an upgrade. He could be the Week 1 starter at right guard, depending on what the Lions decide to do with Halapoulivaati Vaitai, whose health and high cap hit pose challenges for the team.
