Bills Move Up in First Round by Trading Cordy Glenn to Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals have acquired top offensive tackle Cordy Glenn in a trade with the Buffalo Bills, reports Fox Sports.

According to Albert Breer, the Bills and Bengals are swapping first-round picks, with Buffalo moving from 21 to 12, but are also sending a fifth-round pick back in exchange for a sixth.

The moves help place the Bills in a position to use one of their first-round picks to draft a quarterback. The team is now on the hook for the remainder of the five-year, $65 million extension Glenn signed with the Bills in 2016. Buffalo moves up to 12th overall and the Bengals drop to 21st.

The Bills used Dion Dawkins in Glenn's spot at left tackle the final ten games of the season.

Meanwhile, the Bills are set at left tackle. He was limited to six games previous year because of an injury to his left foot that eventually required surgery.

The Bills, meanwhile, continue to maneuver around the National Football League draft after they received a third-round pick from the Cleveland Browns by trading Tyrod Taylor. On the other hand, if Glenn turns into a star, the Bengals have him under contract for the next three years at just $30 million, which is a bargain for a starting left tackle.

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. The franchise pays more money but has an easy out if the outcome isn't beneficial for the team.

The team still has nine draft picks in their arsenal, something that gives them the capital to pounce on a top-five pick when offered. The Bills dealt Tyrod Taylor, who played in the team's first playoff game since 1999, to the Browns on Friday and are in obvious need of a quarterback. It eventually led to the Bills placing him on season-ending injured reserve on December 15th.
