5 thoughts and a grade for Buffalo Bills trading Cordy Glenn

Cincinnati Bengals full 2018 NFL mock draft Bills Today: Schein makes his forecast for Bills' draft plans
Frederick Owens | 13 March, 2018, 01:59

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a trade with the Buffalo Bills for left tackle Cordy Glenn, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Buffalo now owns the 12th and 22nd selections in the 2018 draft.

The deal is an apparent move for Buffalo to position itself for one of the several quarterbacks expected to be taken in the first round of the draft.

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. The Bengals also get the Bills' fifth-round pick (No. 158) and the Bills get the Bengals' sixth-round pick (187th). They also unload an offensive tackle that was marred by injuries, and they still have two picks in the first-round.

In terms of the value on the NFL Trade Value Chart, the Bills are getting roughly a mid-second round pick back for Glenn. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo. 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. Many thought the Bengals may use their 12th overall pick on a tackle, or an offensive lineman of some sort at the very least.

The Bengals have now filled a massive need with Glenn. He played 11 games in 2016 and only six previous year.

"Somewhat of a frustrating year overall", Bills coach Sean McDermott said in December, adding Glenn would undergo surgery on his foot in hopes of returning to health this offseason. It resulted in him signing a five-year, $65 million contract with the team during the 2016 off-season.
