Bills to trade LT Cordy Glenn to Bengals

However, with the New York Jets and Denver Broncos also possibly needing to trade up to grab a quarterback, the Colts may be in a prime position for a bidding war that now includes the Bills.

The Buffalo Bills' wheeling and dealing offseason continued on Monday, as they reportedly made a big move up the draft board by trading left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals.

By packaging one of their picks with Glenn, the Bills are in a great position to continue their climb up the first round in an effort to land one of the top four quarterbacks in this year's NFL Draft.

Buffalo also will drop 29 spots on day three of the draft.

The Bills are sending the #21 overall pick and Glenn to the Bengals.

The team still has nine draft picks in their arsenal, something that gives them the capital to pounce on a top-five pick when offered.

The Bills also have the No. 22 pick, acquired past year from the Chiefs when Kansas City traded up to select Patrick Mahomes. 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 move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo.

He has played in all 16 games in a season three times, while in the other three seasons he played 13, 11, and 5 games. The rookie certainly showed enough promise to make Glenn expendable, especially considering his contract and injury history. Nathan Peterman, the team's fifth-round pick in 2017, will be the only quarterback on the roster once Taylor is officially traded.
