According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, the Bills have traded their left tackle to the Bengals.

According to Albert Breer, the Bills and Bengals are swapping first-round picks, with Buffalo moving from 21 to 12, but are also sending a fifth-round pick back in exchange for a sixth.

The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason.

Dion Dawkins, a second-round draft pick in 2017, stepped in effectively and held his own throughout the season as the team finally reached the playoffs for the first time this century.

And they may have to, considering that they do not now have much available at quarterback after they traded their starter, Tyrod Taylor, to the Cleveland Browns for the top pick in the third round.

This trade makes sense for the Bills in more than one way, with the team determined to get a top quarterback of the future in the upcoming draft and wanting to do away with Glenn's contract. Left tackle Cordy Glenn will be protecting Andy Dalton's blind spot in Cincinnati. So, The Bengals move from pick number 12 to pick number 21 in the first round.

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.

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.

"Somewhat of a frustrating year overall", Bills coach Sean McDermott said in December, adding Glenn would undergo surgery on his foot in hopes of returning to health this offseason. He only played six games this past season due to injury.
