Buffalo also receives Cincinnati's sixth-round pick (No. 187) and the Bengals get the Bills' fifth-round pick (No. 158). According to ESPN, the trade value of packaging those two first-rounders would be worth a top-four pick in the draft - assuming, of course, someone is willing to make that trade.
The trade means that the Bengals will now be on the hook for what's left of Glenn's five-year, $60 million deal that he signed back in May 2016.
The writing on the wall surrounding Glenn's future in Buffalo centered around Dion Dawkins ably filling in for him.
The Bengals are getting an arguably top 15 or top 10 tackle in the league, when healthy.
"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. Glenn provides them a major improvement. This latest move by the Bills may not be the last.
For the Bills, they move up to a much better spot in the draft without having to give up an arm and a leg. They are still too low to get someone like Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen, but could be in a position to get a quarterback like Baker Mayfield or Josh Allen.
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. It all starts this week with free agency and the draft next month.
