Bills Trading LT Cordy Glenn To Bengals

Josina Anderson reports that the Bills are trading LT Cordy Glenn to the Bengals on Monday.

  • Peter Schrager reports that the Bills receive the No. 12 overall and the Bengals 2018 sixth-round pick for Glenn, No. 21 overall and the Bills 2018 fifth-round pick
  • Mike Rodak points out that trading Glenn will save the Bills $4.85 million if the trade is executed before March 18, when Glenn is due a $2 million roster bonus.

There has been increasing buzz over the past few days that the Bills were open to moving Glenn in a deal and there’s no question that the Bengals could use a solid left tackle.

Glenn, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. He’s entering the third year of his five-year, $65 million contract that included $36 million guaranteed and a $16 million signing bonus.

Glenn will make base salaries of $9.25 million (2018), $7.25 million (2019), and $7.5 million (2020) over the remainder of the agreement.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Glenn will free up $4.85 million of available cap space while creating $9.6 million in dead money.

In 2017, Glenn appeared in six games for the Bills before he was placed on injured reserve.
