Bengals make move for Bills tackle

The Bengals will also acquire a fifth-round pick from Buffalo and send a sixth-round pick to the Bills as part of the exchange. Left tackle Cordy Glenn will be protecting Andy Dalton's blind spot in Cincinnati. There are also reports the teams will also swap 5th and 6th round picks. It limits the team's options in free agency, but shores up the team's biggest issue.

That potential trade became even more interesting on Monday as the NFL's legal tampering period opened. Glenn spent most of last on the sidelines with a nagging foot injury. The contract while paying Glenn top tackle money is low risk in the sense that the Bengals would not be shelling out dead cap money if they chose to move on from Glenn. Right tackle Jake Fisher, the team's 2015 second-round pick, ended his 2017 season early due to a heart condition but will be ready to play next season.

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 Bills are sending the #21 overall pick and Glenn to the Bengals. Before the trade, the Bengals had over $30 million to spend this offseason, however, they only intended on spending about $15 million.

Last week, the Bills agreed to trade quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns. All Whitworth did a year ago was make the Rams instant contenders. 21 and 22) were worth only enough to move to No. 7 under a conventional draft trade value chart. The money in 2018 is high for Glenn, but the ability to cut all ties if he doesn't work out after one year brings some comfort as well.
