Graham Glasgow – C (Denver Broncos)

The market for centers in the NFL is incredibly scarce. You would be hard-pressed to find a starting center on the trade block, especially one that would actually upgrade your team.

As the Vikings head into the new season, it is becoming increasingly obvious that center Garrett Bradbury is one of the weakest parts of the offensive line. In his final year under contract with the team, there is speculation that he may not even begin the season as a starter.

Minnesota needs help in the middle of their line, and they should bring in an outside player to compete for the job before the regular season begins.

A player that could be on the Vikings’ radar is Denver Broncos center Graham Glasgow. Glasgow is a former third-round draft pick out of Michigan, and while he currently is listed as a guard for the Broncos, he has extended experience as a center too.

Glasgow has held his own in the NFL, having a stretch from 2017 through 2019 where his PFF grade was above 70. Even as his play has declined slightly in recent years, he is still able to contribute.

With Glasgow now being relegated to a backup role in Denver, the opportunity for the Vikings to go after him is right there. Minnesota could take a chance on the 30-year-old and see if he has what it takes to dethrone Bradbury at center. And even if he is unable to do so, having a versatile lineman with extensive playing time is never a bad issue to have.
