3 Former Michigan football O-lineman sign for over $100 million in NFL free agency

On Monday, the first day of the NFL free agency tampering period, some former Michigan football offensive linemen inked contracts worth more than $100 million.
On the first day of NFL free agency, former Michigan offensive tackle has had an excellent day. Even though contracts cannot be legally signed until Wednesday, three former Michigan players agreed to big contracts on Monday, and none of them were first-round picks.
Michael Onwenu was a former sixth-round choice of the New England Patriots who was projected to command a large contract on the open market. He even acted as his own agent, and it was rumored that he re-signed with New England for three years at $57 million, with $22 million guaranteed.

The former Michigan football standout and 2020 NFL draft pick has started 56 of 64 games in his career, including starts at tackle and guard for the Patriots, who traded Mac Jones this week and were recently expected to choose J.J. McCarthy at third overall.

Another former Michigan football player, Graham Glasgow, a third-round choice by the Lions in 2016, signed a three-year, $20 million contract with Detroit after starting 15 games last season. Glasgow is in his second season with the team, and the 31-year-old could finish up retiring as a Lion. For now, he’ll get to stick around for a potential Super Bowl run after the club wasted a 17-point lead in the second half against the 49ers in last season’s NFC championship Championship game.
Last but not least, former Michigan football offensive tackle Jon Runyan Jr., who currently plays guard for the Green Bay Packers, has signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Giants. His father was a long-time Eagle, which is unusual, but it’s fantastic to see Runyan cash in after a strong start to his career in Green Bay.
