More than two months prior to the deadline for signing franchise-tagged players to long-term deals, the Bills and tackle Cordy Glenn converted his one-year franchise tender into a five-year contract.
Per a source with knowledge of the deal, Glenn receives $26.5 million fully guaranteed at signing, as part of a five-year, $65 million package. He’ll earn $19 million in the first year, and $30 million through year two.
The deal has another $9.5 million guaranteed for injury.
It’s the second highest full guarantee any offensive lineman has received, and it puts Glenn under contract with the Bills through 2020.
