Cordy Glenn

The Bills have moved up the first round of this year's National Football League draft by sending Cordy Glenn and the No. 21 pick to the Bengals in exchange for the No. 12 choice, The MMQB's Albert Breer reports. Buffalo will take over Cincinnati's spot at 12th overall while the Bengals fall back to number 21. Buffalo now owns the 12th overall pick and the 22nd pick from their prior deal with Kansas City. Dalton was sacked a total of 39 times past year, which was tied for the sixth-highest total of any quarterback in the NFL.

This is when injuries began to creep in, with Glenn missing 15 games across the last two seasons - making just five starts for the team in 2017.

As for the Bengals, Glenn, 28, will be a much-needed addition to an offensive line that has needed to grow. The Bills had been looking to unload Glenn and the Bengals were in desperate need of an upgrade at the offensive tackle position.

As long as he's healthy, Glenn will be an instant upgrade over any tackle that the Bengals now have on the roster. Are you sad to see Glenn go?


Of course, this trade could turn into a disaster for the Bengals if Glenn doesn't return to his pre-2016 form.

The Bills will save $4.85 million of Glenn's $14.4 million cap hit for the 2018 season as long as the deal is completed before his $2 million roster bonus comes into effect on Sunday. The teams also swapped fifth and sixth round picks. Monday they traded him to the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason. The Cincinnati Bengals tried to prepare for the future without their Pro Bowl left tackle, Andrew Whitworth, and it would be safe to say that those plans have fallen through.
