Cordy Glenn signs deal with Bills

The Bills are getting close to putting the final touches on signing their draft class.

One day after signing first-round pick Stephon Gilmore, the Bills announced that they have agreed to a contract with offensive lineman Cordy Glenn. The second-round pick signed a four-year deal with the team.

Coming into the draft there was a difference of opinion about what Glenn’s role would be in the NFL. Some thought his massive size — 6’6″, 345 pounds — meant that he would be playing guard while others thought that he could remain at the tackle spot he played at Georgia. Bills General Manager is part of the latter group and he picked Glenn as a potential solution to the team’s need at left tackle. Chris Hairston will be his competition for the job this summer and it won’t be any surprise to see Glenn wind up with the job.

With Glenn in the fold, third-round wide receiver T.J. Wilson is the only Buffalo draft pick yet to sign.

    Well the Bills really don’t know what they are doing if they are trying to sign T.J. Wilson instead of T.J. Graham.

    Glenn is a very good player, but I think Hairiston beats him out this year for the LT position.

    I’ve always been a kind of secondary Bills fan — always liked them even though Oilers/Texans have been my #1 team. Anyway, I hope for the Bills’ sake they don’t try to make Cordy Glenn a LT. I don’t think he can hack it — RT maybe, and certainly either Guard position, but I just don’t think he has the lateral quickness to play LT.

    I watched Glenn Dominate for the last 2 years at Georgia. I still can’t believe he went to the 2nd round. I thought he was a good pick for the Bills in the 1st round. This was a heck of a draft for Buddy Nix. The 1st 2 picks are studs and Brooks will be a starter in the NFL at corner. A+ draft for Buffalo. This is coming from a Dolphin fan.
