Buffalo Bills Trade Cordy Glenn, Move Up in First Round of 2018 NFL Draft

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

The Bills also send their fifth-round pick to Cincinnati, and the Bengals send their sixth-round selection to Buffalo.

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. Left tackle Cordy Glenn will be protecting Andy Dalton's blind spot in Cincinnati.

The Bills also have the 22nd pick in the draft next month. But free agency allows for a team to plug some holes on the depth chart with National Football League ready talent.

This trade shows that the Bills are building something big for next season. But he was slowed by foot and ankle injuries and limited to five games last season.

Many fans likely want the Colts to take NC State edge rusher Bradley Chubb with the No. 3 overall pick and if he is available, that's likely the route they will go. After the Bills drafted him in the second round with the 41st overall pick in 2012, Glenn has been a regular contributor on the offensive line when healthy.

The Bengals drafted a pair of tackles in the 2015 NFL Draft in first-rounder Cedric Ogbuehi and second-rounder Jake Fisher. This season will be the last in Glenn's deal before Cincinnati could potentially release him without taking a massive cap hit. Perhaps they'll stay put and utilize this selection on a quarterback.

The Buffalo Bills got off to a quick start to free agency by agreeing to terms with veteran corner Vontae Davis and running back Chris Ivory. Many thought the Bengals may use their 12th overall pick on a tackle, or an offensive lineman of some sort at the very least.

Trade agreements can not be made official until Wednesday.

After letting Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler leave in free agency a year ago, the Bengals offensive line was a total disaster in 2017.
