More Buzz That Bills Are Open To Trading LT Cordy Glenn

Albert Breer reports that the Bills are open to trading LT Cordy Glenn this offseason, as there are a lot of teams looking for tackle help right now.

  • This comes a day after Jason La Canfora mentioned that Buffalo was still willing to move Glenn, even though they haven’t been operating as though they need to make this trade.
  • La Canfora believes the Browns could make sense as a potential trade partner for Glenn if Joe Thomas retires from the NFL. Although, after speaking with people around the NFL, La Canfora mentions that the consensus is that Thomas will be back for the 2018 season.
  • According to La Canfora, the Eagles could make sense too, but the Jason Peters is “very likely” to be back in Philadelphia next year, as they’ve made no attempts to move on from him up to this point. La Canfora adds that Eagles GM Howie Roseman “will have other tricks up his sleeve.”

Glenn actually surfaced as a potential trade candidate in the days leading up to last year’s trade deadline. However, Buffalo reportedly had a high asking price for him and the deadline came and went with a deal getting done.

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 would 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.
