Bills Trade LT Cordy Glenn To The Bengals

Report Bengals plan to spend only $15M in free agency Report Bengals plan to spend only $15M in free agency

The Bills owned two first-round picks prior to the trade, the 21st and 22nd overall selections, which many draft analysts assumed they'd deal in an effort to move up for a quarterback.

The beauty to this trade for the Bills, as they likely will go all in to bring in their franchise quarterback, is that it now gives teams near the top of the 2018 NFL Draft more incentive to move down and acquire more picks, while not moving so far down the order that it blows up the value they would have had by selecting at their former lofty spot.

According to the NFL Network's Pete Schrager, the Bills and Bengals swapped first round picks as part of the deal.

This is one of those trades where both sides are definitely going to come away happy.

The Bengals have now filled a massive need with Glenn.

They took a pair of tackles in the 2015 NFL Draft (first-rounder Cedric Ogbuehi and second-rounder Jake Fisher), but neither of them were able to replace departed free agent Andrew Whitworth past year. The Bengals allowed 40 sacks, which tied for 13th in the NFL. They drafted two tackles in the 2017 National Football League draft, Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher, and would have likely been forced to take another at 12 in April's draft.

As long as he's healthy, Glenn will be an instant upgrade over any tackle that the Bengals now have on the roster. However, Glenn did undergo an operation in January and he's expected to be ready for practice when offseason workouts begin in April.

Glenn struggled to stay on the field in 2017, making only five starts due to a nagging ankle injury. Following Monday's move - another blockbuster by Bills GM Brandon Beane - it's clear that they must have liked what they heard from at least one of those players. At pick 21, the Bills would be asking a team near the top of the draft to make an unprecedented move.

Glenn signed a five-year, $60 million contract with Buffalo before the 2016 season.
