Former Bills tackle Cordy Glenn moving to guard with Bengals

Former Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Cordy Glenn is moving to left guard for the Cincinnati Bengals, according to reports.

Glenn, 29, has made all 90 of his career starts at tackle but will slide inside to make room for first-round draft pick Jonah Williams.

The move came after Glenn talked with offensive line coach Jim Turner.

"Coach Turner and I had a man-to-man talk," Glenn told reporters, via Paul Dehner of The Athletic.

"Love his mindset," coach Zac Taylor said, via Fletcher Page of the Cincinnati Enquirer. "He wants to do whatever to help us win. ... It's helpful that he's done it in the past (in college at Georgia)."

The Bills traded Glenn to the Bengals before the start of free agency in 2018. In the deal, the Bills sent Glenn and the No. 21 pick to the Bengals for No. 12, which Buffalo traded on draft night to move up to No. 7 and select Josh Allen. The Bills also got a sixth-round pick and gave up a fifth-round pick.

Glenn started for the Bills since he was drafted in Round 2 in 2012 but was sidelined for 11 games in 2017 with a foot injury, opening the door for Dion Dawkins.

Glenn has two years remaining on a five-year, $60 million contract that he signed with the Bills that paid him $36 million guaranteed.

He struggled in his first year with the Bengals, with a Pro Football Focus run blocking grade of 46.5 and a passing blocking grade of 71.3.
