Bengals Trade for Cordy Glenn


The Cincinnati Bengals on Monday agreed to acquire left tackle Cordy Glenn from the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports.

Per NFL Network's Peter Schrager, the Bills and Bengals are swapping their first-round picks while exchanging fifth and sixth-round picks this year.

The trade means that the Bengals will now be on the hook for what's left of Glenn's five-year, $60 million deal that he signed back in May 2016.

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.

2015 first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi hasn't progressed as expected, while Clint Boling is more suited to guard than tackle, despite his strong performance at tackle toward the end of the 2017 season.

After trading away Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns last Friday, general manager Brandon Beane made yet another trade that puts the Bills in great position for the draft.

The Bills set themselves up to possibly get their franchise quarterback in the draft. According to ESPN, the trade value of packaging those two first-rounders would be worth a top-four pick in the draft - assuming, of course, someone is willing to make that trade. It eventually led to the Bills placing him on season-ending injured reserve on December 15th. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo. Many thought the Bengals may use their 12th overall pick on a tackle, or an offensive lineman of some sort at the very least.

As long as he's healthy, Glenn will be an instant upgrade over any tackle that the Bengals now have on the roster. He only played in eleven games these season while rookie Dion Dawkins saw playing time in 16 games.
