Bills Trade LT Cordy Glenn To The Bengals


The Bengals have traded for a starting left tackle, according to FOX19 Now's media partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Per Spotrac, the Bills incur a $9.6 million dead money charge but also net $4.85 million in cap savings for 2018 as a result of the transaction.

The Bills could be looking to move up and land a quarterback in this year's draft. The teams also swapped fifth and sixth round picks. If the Browns want to take a quarterback, they will have their pick with the top overall selection in the draft.

The 28-year-old Glenn has been Buffalo's starting left tackle since entering the National Football League as a second-round pick in 2012 but a foot injury limited him to six games last season. That's why they were willing to trade Tyrod Taylor for a third round pick and it's way trading Glenn to move up to 12 was appealing. But even prior to last season, Glenn had issues with the ankle. The Bengals will also have Glenn under contract for non-guaranteed base salaries of $7.25 million (2018) and $7.5 million (2019), as well as $2 million roster bonuses each season. Offensive line play was a major problem for the Bengals and the addition of Glenn takes care of left tackle.

"Somewhat of a frustrating year overall", Bills coach Sean McDermott said in December, adding Glenn would undergo surgery on his foot in hopes of returning to health this offseason. After missing 15 games in the past two seasons due to injury, the Bills made a decision to part ways with his contract.

The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason.
