Bills Trade Cordy Glenn to Bengals, Swap Picks


On Friday, Buffalo shipped quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland, leaving them with just one quarterback under contract for 2018, Nathan Peterman. The Bills had been looking to unload Glenn and the Bengals were in desperate need of an upgrade at the offensive tackle position.

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.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, the Bills have traded their left tackle to the Bengals. He only played six games this past season due to injury. It resulted in him signing a five-year, $65 million contract with the team during the 2016 off-season.

One year after letting two key offensive linemen walk in free agency, it looks like the Bengals have finally made a decision to bring in some extra protection for Andy Dalton, and they're paying a hefty price to do it.

As for the Bengals, Glenn, 28, will be a much-needed addition to an offensive line that has needed to grow.

The Bills, meanwhile, continue to maneuver around the National Football League draft after they received a third-round pick from the Cleveland Browns by trading Tyrod Taylor. This latest move by the Bills may not be the last.

No NFL team had ever traded out of a top five pick to a position in the first round outside the top 20 picks.

Many fans likely want the Colts to take NC State edge rusher Bradley Chubb with the No. 3 overall pick and if he is available, that's likely the route they will go. Monday they traded him to the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cincinnati Bengals surprised everyone by making a move for a veteran lineman days before free agency opened.
