Buffalo Bills trade former Georgia tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati Bengals

Buffalo Bills trade former Georgia tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati Bengals

The Bills also have the No. 22 pick, acquired previous year from the Chiefs when Kansas City traded up to select Patrick Mahomes. In return, Buffalo will get Cincinnati's first-round pick, which is the 12th overall selection.

It was discussed over the weekend how the Indianapolis Colts have a potential new trade partner in the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 NFL Draft after they traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns.

ORCHARD PARK, NY- The Bills have moved on from left tackle Cordy Glenn. At pick 21, the Bills would be asking a team near the top of the draft to make an unprecedented move.

This is a direct response to Cedric Ogbuehi being unable to fill in at left tackle after Andrew Whitworth left in free agency a year ago.

According to Spotrac, Buffalo also frees up $4.85 million in salary cap space with the Glenn trade. the team now has a little over $39.7 million to spend this offseason. The rookie second-round pick out of Temple was expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle.

As long as he's healthy, Glenn will be an instant upgrade over any tackle that the Bengals now have on the roster.

Since signing a big extension with the Bills in 2016, Glenn has been limited with many injuries. He was then placed on the season-ending injured reserve in Week 15 after being unable to play in five straight weeks before that.

Whatever happens, the Bills will miss Glenn's presence on the O-line.

Glenn's cap number will hit $14,450,000 this year, as he was under a five year, $60 million dollar contract with the Bills in May of 2016.
