Bills Trade LT Cordy Glenn To The Bengals

This trade turns out just to be a draft pick swap for the Bills, and according to Peter Schrager from the NFL Network, the Bengals swap first-round picks, and trade their sixth-round pick for Buffalo's fifth-round pick.

The deal is an apparent move for Buffalo to position itself for one of the several quarterbacks expected to be taken in the first round of the draft.

This is the second big trade in three days for Buffalo.

Between adding a 3rd round pick for a quarterback they didn't really want (Tyrod Taylor) and moving up nine spots in the first round for a tackle they didn't really want, Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott have done plenty of work towards getting the Bills in position to get the quarterback they want. 21 and 22) were worth only enough to move to No. 7 under a conventional draft trade value chart.

Glenn has been a Bills starter since his rookie season in 2012.

Glenn is entering the third season of a five-year, $65 million contract he signed in May 2016. Additionally, Glenn is due a $2 million roster bonus Sunday. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo.

But trading Glenn before Sunday means the Bills will save $4.85 million against the 2018 salary cap (that assumes the deal will be finalized by then).

The Bengals have now filled a massive need with Glenn.

Overall, Glenn has played in 78 games (77 starts) during his six National Football League campaigns. He was eventually placed on injured reserve in December. He missed two games because of an ankle injury and three games because of a back injury in 2016.
