Buffalo Bills trade Cordy Glenn and move up in the first round

Buffalo Bills mock draft 1.0: First two rounds of the 2018 draft

The Cincinnati Bengals on Monday agreed to acquire left tackle Cordy Glenn from the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports.

Per Spotrac, the Bills incur a $9.6 million dead money charge but also net $4.85 million in cap savings for 2018 as a result of the transaction.

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.

This move gets the Bills in much better position to jump up into the top five picks of the first round and land a top quarterback. The teams will also swap 5th and 6th round picks. Nathan Peterman, the team's fifth-round pick in 2017, will be the only quarterback on the roster once Taylor is officially traded. This allows the Bills to clear anywhere from four to six million dollars off their cap for 2018.

Amanda Nunes' Next Title Defense Set For UFC 224
She cuts a tremendous amount of weight to make the featherweight limit of 145 pounds, so the UFC decided on Nunes-Pennington. UFC 224 will also see Vitor Belfort take on fellow legend, Lyoto Machida, and Kelvin Gastelum battle "Jacare" Souza.

Dion Dawkins, a rookie second-round pick, started the 11 games Glenn didn't.

The Bengals have now filled a massive need with Glenn. He was limited to six games a year ago because of an injury to his left foot that eventually required surgery.

In return, the Bills get to jump up nine spots in the first round. It resulted in him signing a five-year, $65 million contract with the team during the 2016 off-season.

Glenn, 28, had been the Bills' starting left tackle since being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft. The Bengals likely are not done adding to their offensive line, as few reliable pieces other than Glenn and Clint Boling are locked in. He missed two games because of an ankle injury and three games because of a back injury in 2016.
