Cincinnati Bengals reportedly trade for OT Cordy Glenn from Buffalo Bills

ORCHARD PARK, NY- The Bills have moved on from left tackle Cordy Glenn.

Buffalo also receives Cincinnati's sixth-round pick (No. 187) and the Bengals get the Bills' fifth-round pick (No. 158).

Glenn battled injuries throughout 2017, and the Bills placed him on injured reserve in December after he appeared in six games.

2015 first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi hasn't progressed as expected, while Clint Boling is more suited to guard than tackle, despite his strong performance at tackle toward the end of the 2017 season.

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

While her surrogacy experience wasn't always the easiest, Kardashian knows that they ultimately made the right decision. Kim Kardashian demands control in almost all facets of her life, but her surrogate had only a few simple rules.

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. In the first round, the Bills move up to No. 12 and the Bengals move down to 21. With Dawkins productivity this year and with him having the much cheaper contract, Glenn was more than likely on his way out.

Cincinnati lost Kevin Zeitler and Andrew Whitworth in free agency last offseason, and Cincinnati failed to adequately replace them. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have acquired a talented offensive lineman that can stabilize the left side of the offensive line on Pro Bowl quarterback Andy Dalton's blind side. If the teams finalize the deal by Sunday, the Bills will save $4.85 million against the 2018 cap, according to the Buffalo News .

Still, adding a proven blocker such as Glenn addresses a big need for the Bengals. He missed five games and played a career-low 657 snaps in 2016.
