Bills reportedly trade OT Glenn to Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills have reached agreement on a trade that will send offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals, multiple media outlets reported Monday. At pick 21, the Bills would be asking a team near the top of the draft to make an unprecedented move.

Per NFL Network's Peter Schrager, the Bills and Bengals are swapping their first-round picks while exchanging fifth and sixth-round picks this year.

Glenn is a former second-round pick and has started 77 career games with the Bills.

Last summer, Glenn missed a significant portion of training camp and the preseason because of a lingering foot and ankle injury. The team is now on the hook for the remainder of the five-year, $65 million extension Glenn signed with the Bills in 2016. There was a lot of praise and hype surrounding Ogbuehi coming out of Texas A&M, as he was set to become Andrew Whitworth's replacement when he left the Bengals before last season.

Having the 12th overall pick should allow the team to have a better selection of quarterbacks in the first round if that's how it wants to replace Taylor. The Bills will save more than $4 million on the cap in the deal.

And they may have to, considering that they do not now have much available at quarterback after they traded their starter, Tyrod Taylor, to the Cleveland Browns for the top pick in the third round.

The Bills have been at the center of high-profile trades for the past several months now going back to last season when they dealt Sammy Watkins. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo.

Still, adding a proven blocker such as Glenn addresses a big need for the Bengals.
