Bengals trade for Bills OT Cordy Glenn

Buffalo traded Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson who first reported the developments.

According to Spotrac, Buffalo also frees up $4.85 million in salary cap space with the Glenn trade. the team now has a little over $39.7 million to spend this offseason. The Bills now own the 12th and 22nd pick in the first round this year.

This move gets the Bills in much better position to jump up into the top five picks of the first round and land a top quarterback. The two teams will also swap fifth and sixth round picks in the deal. Cincinnati feels that he will be healthy come 2018 and ready to make an immediate impact on an offensive line that has struggled the last two seasons resulting in 80 sacks on quarterback Andy Dalton and nearly no run game. 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.

The Albany region not only features top-seeded UConn , but some of the top prospects in the upcoming WNBA Draft (April 12, ESPN2). The team enters the tournament as a No. 1 seed for the 21 time in program history and the 12 consecutive season.

Last summer, Glenn missed a significant portion of training camp and the preseason because of a lingering foot and ankle injury. In the spring of 2016, Glenn signed a $65 million contract extension with Buffalo that the Bengals will now take on. He was then placed on the season-ending injured reserve in Week 15 after being unable to play in five straight weeks before that.

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. The rookie second-round pick out of Temple was expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle. Football Outsiders ranked Cincinnati's offensive line 24th in adjusted line yards and 20th in adjusted sack rate. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo.
