  • 2018 NFL draft Why recent moves won't change Browns plan at No. 1

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that the Bills will send their first 5th round pick (158 overall) to Cincinnati for the Bengals' 6th rounder (187 overall).

The Bill had put themselves in the position to make a move with back-to-back first-round draft picks at the 21st and 22nd overall selections. That is in addition to the pick the team still has at No. 22 overall.

Buffalo also will drop 29 spots on day three of the draft. On Friday, Buffalo traded starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland for a third-round pick.

The Bengals have struggled at tackle since longtime veteran Andrew Whitworth signed with the Los Angeles Rams in free agency last year and have been noncommittal about picking up the fifth-year option of 2015 first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi. But even prior to last season, Glenn had issues with the ankle. He started all 61 of the games he appeared in for the Bills over the course of his first four seasons in the league.

The Bills will save $4.85 million of Glenn's $14.4 million cap hit for the 2018 season as long as the deal is completed before his $2 million roster bonus comes into effect on Sunday.

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.

Reportedly, the Bengals will assume all of Glenn's current contract. Buffalo placed Glenn on injured reserve in Week 15. Cincinnati is sending the #12 overall pick to Bills. With Dawkins productivity this year and with him having the much cheaper contract, Glenn was more than likely on his way out.
