Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said on Tuesday that the team was ready to get back to the negotiating table with several players they wanted to sign to contract extensions.

It didn’t take long for them to check off one of those boxes.

The agents for left tackle Cordy Glenn announced on Tuesday evening that their client has agreed to a five-year extension with the team. The Bills gave Glenn the franchise tag earlier this offseason — Glenn signed it shortly after — and had until July 15 to hammer out a multi-year deal.

Glenn was Buffalo’s second-round pick in the 2012 draft and he has started 57 straight games for the team. No financial details of the deal have come to light, but it’s a good bet that the Bills were able to lessen the $13.7 million cap hit they would have taken if Glenn played out the year under the tag.

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore and quarterback Tyrod Taylor are the other players that the Bills would like to extend.
