So, The Bengals move from pick number 12 to pick number 21 in the first round.
Addressing one of their biggest holes with this trade, the Bengals can now be more "picky" with their first-round pick. Dareus, Glenn and Tyord Taylor - once his trade to Cleveland becomes official - will account for $31.4 million in dead money.
With a new need opening up for the Bills at the quarterback position, they are extremely inclined to look for a way to move up in the draft and take a potential franchise quarterback. 21 and 22) were worth only enough to move to No. 7 under a conventional draft trade value chart.
The Bills used Dion Dawkins in Glenn's spot at left tackle the final ten games of the season. This allows the Bills to clear anywhere from four to six million dollars off their cap for 2018. They also unload an offensive tackle that was marred by injuries, and they still have two picks in the first-round.
But trading Glenn before Sunday means the Bills will save $4.85 million against the 2018 salary cap (that assumes the deal will be finalized by then). Buffalo placed Glenn on injured reserve in Week 15. The rookie second-round pick out of Temple was expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle. He missed five games and played a career-low 657 snaps in 2016.
"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. In the spring of 2016, Glenn signed a $65 million contract extension with Buffalo that the Bengals will now take on.
