Bengals make move for Bills tackle

Report: Bengals bolster O-line in trade with Bills, move back in draft

According to, the Bengals have pulled off a trade with the Bills that will send left tackle Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati. The Bengals and Bills also swapped picks, including the 12th and 21st pick.

Glenn, a second-round pick of the Bills back in 2012, has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons.

It isn't clear how much the Colts would be able to get for the No. 3 overall pick from the Bills but it would nearly certainly include the No. 12 and No. 22 overall picks as the Bills own both. The Bills had been looking to unload Glenn and the Bengals were in desperate need of an upgrade at the offensive tackle position.

Quarterbacks Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield are jockeying for top-10 status in Round 1, and the Bills have suddenly become a legitimate suitor as draft season kicks into high gear.

Despite any concerns about Glenn's durability, he's a sensible addition for the Bengals after their offensive line was an area of weakness in 2017. He started all 61 of the games he appeared in for the Bills over the course of his first four seasons in the league. The rookie second-round pick out of Temple was expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle.

The moves help place the Bills in a position to use one of their first-round picks to draft a quarterback. The upside for the Bengals is that if Glenn doesn't get healthy or doesn't work out in Cincinnati, they can release him after the 2018 season without taking a cap hit. It resulted in him signing a five-year, $65 million contract with the team during the 2016 off-season.

Last week, the Bills agreed to trade quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns.
