Buffalo Bills: Breaking down the trade of Cordy Glenn to the Bengals

Buffalo Bills: Breaking down the trade of Cordy Glenn to the Bengals

ORCHARD PARK, NY- The Bills have moved on from left tackle Cordy Glenn.

The trade, reported by multiple outlets, will also see the Bills swap their first-round pick (No. 21 overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft for the Bengals' first-round selection at No. 12. The Bengals are dropping nine spots in the first round of the draft to acquire Glenn, which is a steep price to pay if Glenn isn't a 100 percent. Glenn signed a five-year, $60 million contract extension back in 2016.

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. He is expected to step in as the Bengals starting left tackle this coming season. He played 11 games in 2016 and only six a year ago.

It was discussed over the weekend how the Indianapolis Colts have a potential new trade partner in the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 NFL Draft after they traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns. The Bills will save more than $4 million on the cap in the deal. As a rookie, Dawkins proved more than capable of filling that role. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo. The Bills had been looking to unload Glenn and the Bengals were in desperate need of an upgrade at the offensive tackle position.

The Bengals will inherit the final three seasons of Glenn's deal, including his $9.25 million base salary and $2 million roster bonus due next week.

"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.
