Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Bengals fined LT Cordy Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team at some point after the two sides were at odds over this return from a concussion.
According to Florio, the Bengals and Glenn have been at odds with one another over his “concussion, its symptoms, whether he’s able to return, the need for second opinions, and how the player feels.”
A source tells Florio that things became heated between Glenn and a member of the Bengals’ coaching staff on Wednesday, which resulted in Glenn eventually telling HC Zac Taylor to just cut him.
Glenn was reportedly upset because he believes that the team rushed him back from his concussion.
Glenn was cleared to return from the concussion on Wednesday, but he was not at practice on Thursday.
Glenn, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. Buffalo traded Glenn to the Bengals last year as part of a pick swap.
Glenn is currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $65 million contract that included $36 million guaranteed and a $16 million signing bonus. He stands to make base salaries of $7.25 million (2019) and $7.5 million (2020) over the remainder of the agreement.
In 2018, Glenn appeared in 13 games for the Bengals and made 13 starts for them.
