The Cincinnati Bengals plan to release offensive tackle Cordy Glenn if their attempt to exchange him fails, according to Jenna Laine from ESPN. It’s unclear what the team is looking for in exchange for the disgruntled veteran. This is a deep year for the talents of attacking attackers, who could have an impact on the trading market. However, there will be an interest in its services via trade or upon its release.
Glenn was acquired – with the No. 21 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft and a fifth round pick – from the Buffalo Bills on March 12, 2018 in exchange for the No. 12 Overall Selection and a sixth round pick . The 30-year-old has started 18 of 19 games played with Cincinnati in the past two seasons.
The team suspended him for a match for “internal disciplinary reasons”. The linesman had suffered a concussion. When he was allowed to return, he chose not to attend training. The situation became toxic and he was available at the NFL Trade. An agreement has clearly not been concluded.
A second-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft out of Georgia, Glenn started 95 of 97 career games. He played a playoff career.
According to Spotrac.com, the Bengals have the 16th largest salary cap ($ 47.64 million). Glenn’s release would save them an additional $ 9.5 million, which is his base salary plus a $ 2 million bonus for the 2020 season. A year ago, the selected organization left striker Jonah Williams with overall selection # 11. Williams missed the entire 2019 season after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum.
