Bills Open To Trading More Veterans Including LT Cordy Glenn & WR Anquan Boldin Before Deadline


According to Jason La Canfora, the Bills are also open to trading LT Cordy Glenn and WR Anquan Boldin at the right price, even after they sent DT Marcell Dareus to the Jaguars for a conditional sixth-round pick (NFLTR) earlier in the week.

La Canfora mentions that it would take something of real value to land Glenn, but he can be had by an interested team willing to pay the price. Buffalo happens to be one of the few teams deep at offensive tackle, which leaves them in a great spot to recoup value ahead of the trade deadline.

As for Boldin, La Canfora says he’s no longer part of their plans and the Bills were surprised that he informed them last week that he wants to resume his NFL career and would like to do so for another team.

Buffalo has clearly been open for business since they hired new GM Brandon Beane, who has already traded WR Sammy Watkins and CB Ronald Darby away for future picks and other assets.

A few weeks ago, La Canfora reported that the Seahawks approached the Bills about Glenn but those talks didn’t go anywhere. However, Seattle could really use some help at the position and Glenn is among the best available options, so this is at least worth watching in the coming days.

As for Boldin, the Bills granted him permission to speak to other teams about a trade (NFLTR), but he won’t be allowed to visit, tryout, take a physical, or discuss a new contract with another team.

Glenn, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2012. He’s currently in the second 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 million (2017, $9.25 million (2018), $7.25 million (2019), and $7.5 million (2020) over the remainder of the agreement.

In 2017, Glenn has appeared in four games for the Bills.

Boldin, 36, is a former second-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2003. He spent seven years in Arizona before being traded to the Ravens in 2010. Baltimore later traded him to the 49ers where’s he’s remained for the past three seasons.

Boldin finished out his two-year, $12 million contract with the Ravens before signing a one-year contract with the Lions last July. Boldin signed another one-year deal with the Bills a few weeks ago worth $2.75 million.

For his career, Boldin played 14 seasons for the Cardinals, Ravens, 49ers and Lions. He caught 1,076 passes for 13,779 yards receiving to go along with 82 touchdowns. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
