Colts' potential trade with Bills becomes even more interesting

Browns could win bidding war for left tackle Nate Solder if Joe Thomas retires

Browns could win bidding war for left tackle Nate Solder if Joe Thomas retires

After the Bills drafted him in the second round with the 41st overall pick in 2012, Glenn has been a regular contributor on the offensive line when healthy.

Using a conventional draft trade value chart, the Bills could package the Bengals' first-round pick and the No. 22 selection (acquired past year from Kansas City) to move as high as No. 4.

This is the second big trade in three days for Buffalo. That's why they were willing to trade Tyrod Taylor for a third round pick and it's way trading Glenn to move up to 12 was appealing.

Quarterbacks Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield are jockeying for top-10 status in Round 1, and the Bills have suddenly become a legitimate suitor as draft season kicks into high gear. 21 and 22) were worth only enough to move to No. 7 under a conventional draft trade value chart. This allows the Bills to clear anywhere from four to six million dollars off their cap for 2018. If the Browns want to take a quarterback, they will have their pick with the top overall selection in the draft.

As for the Bengals, the acquisition means that the final three years of Glenn's deal move to their books at $11.25 million in 2018, $9.25 million in 2019 and $9.5 million in 2020, according to Spotrac.

The timing of the decision to trade left tackle Cordy Glenn is significant, given the salary cap ramifications. He was eventually placed on injured reserve in December. He missed five games and played a career-low 657 snaps in 2016.

Glenn struggled with injuries after signing a five year, 60 million dollar contract in May of 2016.
