Bengals trade for Cordy Glenn

Recommended Posts

We've all been saying it for months now right?  Love the move as long as he can get healthy, but they had to do something.  Moving back to 21 frees us up to take Price, Daniels, Hernandez, or just BPA.

I'll take it.  Not going to complain with us addressing the OL.  I thought we could get a higher pick back as well, but again I'm a happy man.  Now if we can draft James Daniels, Isaiah Wynn,  or Will Hernandez with that #21 pick, I'll do back flips.  After I figure out how to defy the laws of gravity...

We lose out on potentially elite guys falling to 12, but that wasn't a guarantee anyway.  I'm ok with this, at least as long as Glenn isn't broken.

1000 times better than starting a rookie at left tackle.

It seems slightly steep, but worth it if we get him healthy and lock down the left side. Please draft a C at 21 now.

Health is a question. If he can stay healthy it is great. Struggled the last few years with injuries.

Called it. Lol. 

Love the deal. Now we can go BPA

Nailed it.  Glad we swapped 5th and 6th round picks as well.  Would have liked another pick outright (or moving up to the 4th or 3rd), but I'll take it...

Hey guys, Bills fan here. Just wanted to give you some thoughts on Glenn. Let's start off with the big negative, he's got some pretty big injury concerns and has missed time the last two seasons. His cap number is also pretty large but I don't think completely ridiculous given his ability. 

When he's healthy he's certainly near a top 10 LT. He's a better run blocker than he's a pass blocker but he is more than adequate. I'd say he tends to struggle with the speed rushers more than power rushers. I'm happy with the trade from a Bills perspective but if you get a healthy Glenn (a big if in my opinion), you've got a guy who can play LT for you guys for another 5 or 6 years.

This is probably a good move although I think we overpaid. Moving up from 21 to 12 should have cost them more than their 2nd round pick so we're basically valuing Glenn at that level. But there were reports Buffalo was going to cut him for cap reasons rather than keep him as Dion Dawkins backup. 

 

The 11.5 mil we're spending on Glenn will no doubt take us out of regular free agency until only the dregs are left. I imagine we'll re-sign Andre Smith and maybe Bodine. So our top draft pick could go to any position. If we don't re-sign either Bodine or Smith, then we know where it will go.

So, when healthy, how good is he as a run blocker?

Pass blocker?

Glenn is a bit like Whit in that he was pigeon holed as a rt OT guard and has been effective as a left tackle. As long as he is healthy, left tackle is a strength.

I pretty much echo all of this. 

If he gets back to full health and you guys nab Hernandez or Daniels at 21, your OL will be top notch,
