The Bills could be looking to move up and land a quarterback in this year's draft. If Glenn is healthy, he could be the anchor at left tackle the Bengals need. The team could still package their draft picks to move up higher in the draft if they really want someone specific. It all starts this week with free agency and the draft next month.
This trade shows that the Bills are building something big for next season.
Glenn was hurt for much of last season with the Bills and one of the reasons that the team wanted to move on from him.
Cincinnati will pick up the existing contract with Glenn paying him $11,250,000 in 2018.
Not only were the Bills open to trading Cordy Glenn, they were successful at it. 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.
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.
Since the trade of veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns last week, it has made it clear that the Buffalo Bills are in the market for a quarterback.
