The Bills could be looking to move up and land a quarterback in this year's draft.

The Bills are sending Glenn and the 21st overall pick in thw 2018 draft to the Bengals. There are also reports the teams will also swap 5th and 6th round picks. On Friday, Buffalo traded starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland for a third-round pick. The Bills will save more than $4 million on the cap in the deal. The team has struggled to find a solution at left tackle since Pro Bowler Andrew Whitworth departed in free agency last offseason.

The former Georgia Bulldog was made expendable after Dion Dawkins' strong rookie season in 2017. The move also clears Glenn's cap numbers of $12.45 million in 2019 and $12.7 million in 2020 for Buffalo. The Bengals likely are not done adding to their offensive line, as few reliable pieces other than Glenn and Clint Boling are locked in. There is no doubt that Glenn will start come 2018 at the left tackle position.

Last summer, Glenn missed a significant portion of training camp and the preseason because of a lingering foot and ankle injury.

Clinton officer killed, two others wounded
According to Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt Bill Lowe, Morton was shot after a 911 call came in from a home near downtown Clinton. Officer Morton was an army veteran who served two tours and was a member of the Missouri Army National Guard.

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. Buffalo placed Glenn on injured reserve in Week 15.

The 28-year-old has only played in 17 of a possible 32 regular season games over the past seasons.

Glenn signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Bills in May 2016, but that was before Brandon Beane became the Bills general manager and Sean McDermott became their head coach.
