Bengals Trade for Cordy Glenn

13 March 2018

The Bills are sending the #21 overall pick and Glenn to the Bengals.

The injury limited Glenn to five starts through the first nine weeks of last season before he was unable to play in the Bills' next five games.

The Buffalo Bills unloaded their high-priced and oft-injured left tackle and, in the process, may be in line to draft a quarterback next month.

A deal originally reported by ESPN's Josina Anderson Monday afternoon will, according to NFL Network's Peter Schrager, involve the Bills and Bengals swapping first round picks and picks later in the draft. The contract while paying Glenn top tackle money is low risk in the sense that the Bengals would not be shelling out dead cap money if they made a decision to move on from Glenn. At pick 21, the Bills would be asking a team near the top of the draft to make an unprecedented move.

Addressing one of their biggest holes with this trade, the Bengals can now be more "picky" with their first-round pick.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have acquired a talented offensive lineman that can stabilize the left side of the offensive line on Pro Bowl quarterback Andy Dalton's blind side. The Bengals lost Andrew Whitworth to Los Angeles in free agency and weren't able to replace him with Cedric Ogbuehi or Jake Fisher last season. Nathan Peterman, the team's fifth-round pick in 2017, will be the only quarterback on the roster once Taylor is officially traded. This could put them in position to move further up in the first round to possibly land their next franchise quarterback.

Glenn, 28, has three more years left on his contract and is owed $11.25 million in 2018, though his 2019 and 2020 salaries are non-guaranteed.
