Bills trade Cordy Glenn to Bengals, move up in the first round

There are multiple reports Monday that the Bills have traded offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals.

The Bills also send their fifth-round pick to Cincinnati, and the Bengals send their sixth-round selection to Buffalo. In the first round, the Bills move up to No. 12 and the Bengals move down to 21. They are positioning themselves closer to the top of the 2018 NFL Draft, now within striking distance of being able to draft one of the top quarterbacks in the class.

2015 first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi hasn't progressed as expected, while Clint Boling is more suited to guard than tackle, despite his strong performance at tackle toward the end of the 2017 season. With Dawkins productivity this year and with him having the much cheaper contract, Glenn was more than likely on his way out. Now he's already moving on to another team less than two years after signing that deal. They dealt Tyrod Taylor to the Browns for a third-round pick on March 9.

Kansas City Chiefs release DE Tamba Hali
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN , the Kansas City Chiefs are releasing the 34-year-old EDGE man prior to free agency. But after the 2017 season would see him appear just five times, the Chiefs are releasing him.

Cardinals reportedly made offer to Bills for QB Tyrod Taylor
The franchise desperately needs what Taylor can bring - by all accounts, a great locker-room presence and competent QB play. The Browns sent a third-round pick to Buffalo for Taylor , and fourth- and seventh-round picks to Miami for Landry .

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that at least two teams - and possibly three - are willing to give him a contract like that. The Vikings , Bills, Jets , Broncos and Cardinals are among the teams most desperate for quarterback help this offseason.

Despite any concerns about Glenn's durability, he's a sensible addition for the Bengals after their offensive line was an area of weakness in 2017. Hali played in just five games and recorded only one tackle. The upside for the Bengals is that if Glenn doesn't get healthy or doesn't work out in Cincinnati, they can release him after the 2018 season without taking a cap hit.

The 28-year-old Glenn has been Buffalo's starting left tackle since entering the National Football League as a second-round pick in 2012 but a foot injury limited him to six games last season.

The Buffalo Bills unloaded their high-priced and oft-injured left tackle and, in the process, may be in line to draft a quarterback next month.
