So far, Graham Glasgow's problems with adjusting to a new city and a new team aren't about football; they're about furniture.
"I think it's gone pretty well," Glasgow said Tuesday. "… I drove out in March to kind of check out things, then I came back in May and then I moved out here for forever, basically, in the middle of July. That's been going really well. I don't have a lot of furniture in my house — thanks a lot, COVID. Things have taken a little bit longer than I would have liked. I don't have any couches. I have folding chairs in my living room."
But at work on the field, everything has gone pretty smoothly for Glasgow as he joins a young offensive line group.
"Other than that, things are going well," Glasgow said. "Meeting my teammates, everyone was super welcoming and I'm really grateful for that. They've been awesome so far, and I'm just trying to do what I can for them."
With a position battle yet to be decided at center, it may seem like the shortened offseason will raise issues regarding how well the line jells since the official starting five might not be known for a while. But if that's a concern outside UCHealth Training Center, it doesn't sound like there are any worries inside it about that.
"I don't think it takes as long to develop chemistry as a lot of people says it does," Glasgow said. "I think you can kind of get that going in a matter of a few weeks, a couple weeks. The rotations are necessary. They're battling for a job, and we're just trying to put the best five out there. Until we find out who the best five are, I think we need to keep doing it and figuring out what's best for the line and the team."

In previewing the 2020 NFL season via the alphabet, NFL.com's Marc Sessler gave the Broncos the letter I for "If Denver's young pieces fit together…". The logic there is that if Denver's young core works, they'll have a playoff team on their hands. "Drew Lock still a figure of mystery at QB after five late-season starts, but the surrounding talent is juicy," Sessler wrote. "Phillip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon form a stacked backfield beside a talented cast of wideouts led by star-in-the-making Courtland Sutton and fascinating rookie Jerry Jeudy."
In his second year, Lock's personality as the starting quarterback is developing. He's still the excitable young, confident gunslinger, but now he's working on his role as a leader. "It's that kind of 'swag' that has [Courtland] Sutton and other teammates excited for Lock's second season, but it's something they would not have seen from the young quarterback last summer," ESPN's Jeff Legwold writes.
