With new found cap space Bills must continue to be aggressive in free agency

With new found cap space Bills must continue to be aggressive in free agency

Recent high draft picks Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher have not panned out as expected.

It was discussed over the weekend how the Indianapolis Colts have a potential new trade partner in the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 NFL Draft after they traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns. With this trade likely being done to move up to select a quarterback, the team decided to make a change at the other most important position on offense.

The Bills also send their fifth-round pick to Cincinnati, and the Bengals send their sixth-round selection to Buffalo.

In terms of the value on the NFL Trade Value Chart, the Bills are getting roughly a mid-second round pick back for Glenn.

Poonam Raut and Smriti Mandhana got India off to a bright start with a flurry of boundaries, but the spinners pegged them back. Earlier, a 76-run partnership for the eighth wicket saved India the blushes before being bowled out for 200.

Many fans likely want the Colts to take NC State edge rusher Bradley Chubb with the No. 3 overall pick and if he is available, that's likely the route they will go.

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.

Glenn has been Buffalo's starter at left tackle since he was drafted in the second round in 2012 but was limited to just six games (five starts) in 2017 due to a foot issue.

Reportedly, the Bengals will assume all of Glenn's current contract. It eventually led to the Bills placing him on season-ending injured reserve on December 15th. He started all 61 of the games he appeared in for the Bills over the course of his first four seasons in the league. Offensive line play was a major problem for the Bengals and the addition of Glenn takes care of left tackle.
