Buffalo also receives Cincinnati's sixth-round pick (No. 187) and the Bengals get the Bills' fifth-round pick (No. 158). The teams will swap a series of draft picks as part of the deal, which bolsters the Bengals in the trenches for next season.

The 28-year-old Glenn has been Buffalo's starting left tackle since entering the National Football League as a second-round pick in 2012 but a foot injury limited him to six games last season. Dion Dawkins, a rookie second-round pick, started the 11 games Glenn didn't.

Per Spotrac, the Bills incur a $9.6 million dead money charge but also net $4.85 million in cap savings for 2018 as a result of the transaction.
Still, if that happens, the Bills could likely get a nice consolation price in former USC quarterback Sam Darnold, assuming they are able tor trade their way into the top five. He was limited to six games a year ago because of an injury to his left foot that eventually required surgery.
Meanwhile, the Bills are set at left tackle. A big hit that they will take is his contract, but it will be worth it if Glenn can keep defenders off of Dalton.More news: Baby-sitter accused of abusing OH girl, 3, causing brain damage
