Bills sign Glenn to 5-year, $65-million deal

Two down, two to go.

The Buffalo Bills took care of another major offseason priority by signing left offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to a long-term contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

According to multiple sources, the deal covers five years and is worth $65 million, including $26.5 million fully guaranteed.

Glenn, who in March received a franchise tag from the Bills guaranteeing him $13.7 million for this year, is now due to be paid $19 million in 2016. He will get a total of $30 million in the first two years of the agreement.

In March, the Bills signed left guard Richie Incognito to a three-year deal worth $15.75.

The 26-year-old Glenn, a second-round draft pick from Georgia in 2012, had his best season in 2015, when the Bills led the NFL in rushing yards (2,432) and yards per carry (4.78). He has started at left tackle in all 61 games in which he has appeared.

The Bills are also working to lock up two players with one season left on their respective contracts to long-term agreements: cornerback Stephon Gilmore and quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
