Eagles working out Cordy Glenn

The Eagles have lost a pair of starting offensive linemen for the season and they are kicking the tires on an experienced starter as they try to figure out the best path forward for the regular season.

According to multiple reports, the Eagles will bring former Bengals and Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn in for a workout. Andre Dillard was expected to start at left tackle this season, but he went on injured reserve Thursday due to a torn biceps.

Glenn was set to move to left guard with the Bengals last season, but stayed at his regular position when Jonah Williams suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. He only played the final six games of the season as a preseason concussion kept him out of the lineup. He was also suspended for a week by the team in response to a dispute about treatment for that injury.

Glenn has made 95 career starts and would seem to be in the mix to replace Dillard if he agrees to a deal. The Eagles brought longtime left tackle Jason Peters back after right guard Brandon Brooks tore his Achilles, but they have been looking at Matt Pryor and Jordan Mailata at left tackle this week.

  1. JP is holding the team hostage over moving back to LT; he wants a bump in pay. His current deal is 3 mil with 3 mil in incentives. Convert 2 mil to guaranteed $ and make the other mil incentives. Move JP to LT and put Pryor back on the right side which is the side he’s typically played. And yes switching sides is a big adjustment.

  2. Even if you move JP to LT your gonna need a swing tackle because there’s no way he’s playing all 16.

  3. Everyone yelling for Peters to move back to LT hasn’t been watching eagles games the last 2 years. At best, he’s a league average tackle at this stage of his career. Working out a guy like Glenn can’t hurt. Peters doesn’t have the ability to move laterally enough anymore to keep up with defensive ends. At least, at right guard, he won’t have to move laterally nearly as much. Certainly can’t hurt to work out a guy like Glenn to help fill the void.

  4. People say he has the skills and ability, but no drive. Look who hes been with, Bills and Bengals so that probably lets you know that chances are low in getting a ring. Going to a competitive team with a great atmosphere on a 1 or 2 yr prove it deal with a legit challenger to get to the post season he will take advantage. For a fair price I dont mind signing him.
