Seahawks reportedly inquired about trading for Bills LT Cordy Glenn

As the Seattle Seahawks look to bolster their offensive line, CBS reported that they inquired with the Bills this year about the availability of left tackle Cordy Glenn, but talks didn't get very serious.

From CBS' Jason La Canfora:

The Seahawks had previously approached the Bills about their left tackle, Cordy Glenn, but those conversations largely fizzled. While Glenn could be an option to be moved ahead of the deadline — Buffalo has a plethora of tackles at a time most teams have a scarcity, and the team is high on several of its young linemen — it would take a considerable haul to land him. That and his high salary made for a poor fit with the Seahawks.

The NFL trade deadline is 4 p.m. Eastern on Oct. 31, but Glenn seems like a hard player to move. He's a quality left tackle when he's healthy, but not only would he be expensive for the new team to take on (they'd be charged the prorated portion of his $9 million base salary this season for the number of weeks he's on their roster), but he'd also cost the Bills $9.6 million against the salary cap next season due to the future signing bonus money he's owed.

If a team blew the Bills away with an offer, it wouldn't be impossible for them to take that hit, but it's a lot of money to pay someone not to play, especially when considering they might already have to work around significant dead cap space if they cut Marcell Dareus.
