Eagles Discussed Trade For Bills LT Cordy Glenn, But Price Was Too High

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Seahawks trade for Texans LT Duane Brown actually drove up the price for other teams looking to acquire a left tackle before the deadline.

According to La Canfora, the Eagles had discussions with the Bills about LT Cordy Glenn. However, the cost to acquire Glenn became even more prohibitive following the Brown trade.

Buffalo wasn’t openly shopping Glenn last week, but were willing to trade him for the right return. The Bills actually spoke to the Seahawks during the season about Glenn but elected to do the deal for Brown instead.

La Canfora says that the Eagles exchanged some ideas with the Bills regarding a Glenn trade, but it soon became clear that there wasn’t a deal to be made and Philadelphia moved on to other options.

The Eagles also spoke to the Dolphins and Colts about potential trades, but nothing obviously came of the talks outside of the early morning trade for RB Jay Ajayi.

Yesterday, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported the Eagles made an attempt to trade for Brown before the deadline, so they were clearly in the mix for a number of offensive tackles.

Outside of Brown and Glenn, there were not that many names mentioned as trade candidates at the offensive tackle position.

The Eagles ultimately stuck with their current group of offensive linemen and will move forward with Halapoulivaati Vaitai (left tackle), Stefen Wisniewski (left guard), Jason Kelce (center), Brandon Brooks (right guard) and Lane Johnson (right tackle).
