Word came last week at the Combine from the team website that the Bengals could move on from offesnive lineman Cordy Glenn. Now, comes a more definitive report.

According to Jenna Laine of ESPN, the Bengals are shopping Glenn, and if they can’t find a trade partner, they will release him.

Glenn, 30, got in the team’s doghouse last year. He ended up playing six games, with five starts, and served a one-game suspension for an argument with an assistant coach.

He had asked for his release during the 2019 season.

Glenn is scheduled to make $7.5 million in base salary and count $9.5 million against the salary cap in 2020 in the final year of his deal.

The Bengals already have their left tackle of the present and future. They drafted Alabama tackle Jonah Williams in the first round in 2019 to play left tackle, but Williams missed his rookie season with a shoulder injury. He is expected back this season.

  1. He doesn’t like football very much, but maybe someone will give up a mid round pick in the hopes that they can keep him happy?

  2. Bengals aren’t making any bones about how they’re in full blown re-build mode. No wonder Burrow doesn’t want to play there he’s going to be Troy Aikman 1989, but 3-4 years in a row!

  3. 9.5 for a starting left tackle is a pretty good value if he’s healthy and motivated. A team with line needs might float them a 5th or 6th for him.

  4. Bungles GM calling another teams GM> Hey buddy, want to trade for Cordy Glenn? We are going to cut him but if you give us something he’s yours.

    Bungles GM> Hello?

  5. He was out with a self reported concussion for 10-12 weeks? An offensive lineman, I don’t think anyone can pinpoint when he actually got the concussion…if he ever did.

    He played ok when he was back. Frustrating, but as said above, he doesn’t really like football. Apparently he did a similar thing with Buffalo.

  6. Horse crap! This is not true in the slightest.
    1. That’s a good price for a reserve so they could afford to let him ride the pine.
    2. He is a quality player.
    3. He plays a position of need.
    4. The Bengals are notorious for being tight lipped. Coaching staff usually has no idea what’s going on.
    5. The Bengals do not cut players for poisoness attitudes.

    Trade him? Yes… Cut him for nothing? Fairy tale!
