Bills LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) has shed his walking boot.

Glenn isn’t practicing, but he’s trending in the right direction. He’s still expected to miss the entire preseason. Barring setbacks, Glenn should be ready for Week 1.
Aug 20 - 10:05 AM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, and is expected to miss the entire preseason.

The good news is, per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Glenn is believed to have avoided structural damage. It's another blow to a Bills team whose summer has been marred by injury and suspension, but Week 1 is obviously all that matters. Of course, Glenn's absence will make the first-team offense more ragged during its exhibition snaps, perhaps affecting everyone's timing ahead of the opener. Glenn hasn't missed a game since 2012.
Aug 8 - 3:09 PM

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) was spotted wearing a walking boot Monday.

Glenn injured his left ankle during a scrimmage Saturday. The boot suggests he is dealing with an injury which could keep him out a couple weeks. Cyrus Kouandjio worked with the first-team with Glenn sidelined.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn sat out minicamp with a "minor foot issue."

This is mostly just for bookkeeping purposes in case Glenn's injury lingers into camp. There's been zero indication that's a concern. Signed to a five-year, $65 million extension last month, Glenn hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 2012.
Jun 16 - 1:39 PM

Bills signed franchise player LT Cordy Glenn to a five-year, $65 million contract.

The deal includes $36 million guaranteed, $26.5 million of which is "fully" guaranteed. That's the second most in history for a left tackle. The No. 41 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Glenn has manned the blindside since his rookie year, and developed into one of the league's better left tackles. Headed into his age-27 season, Glenn hasn't missed a game since 2012. Locking Glenn up now allows the Bills to focus on long-term deals for Stephon Gilmore and Tyrod Taylor.
May 3 - 6:22 PM

Bills GM Doug Whaley acknowledged he's "actively" trying to get a long-term deal done with franchise player LT Cordy Glenn.

The Bills slapped Glenn with the franchise tag back in March, and Glenn quickly signed the dotted line for a guaranteed $13.706 million this season. He's occupying a large chunk of the Bills' salary cap, and signing him to an extension where the money can be spread out over a number of years will give Buffalo some relief. Glenn is expected to command $11 million-plus per year.
Apr 20 - 12:37 PM

Bills signed franchise player LT Cordy Glenn to a one-year, $13.706 million contract.

As expected. The two sides now have until July 15 to agree on a long-term deal. Even with next to no cap space, the Bills couldn't risk losing Glenn on the open market.
Mar 4 - 3:17 PM

Bills assigned the non-exclusive franchise tag to LT Cordy Glenn.

The move was widely expected. Glenn will earn $13.706 million if he plays out 2016 on the tag, but the Bills will work hard to sign him to a long-term deal. The two sides have until July 15 to work out a new contract. A second-round pick in 2012, Glenn is only 26.
Mar 1 - 12:33 PM

The Bills are expected to franchise free agent LT Cordy Glenn if a deal isn't reached before the March 1 deadline.

Even with the worst cap situation in the league, Buffalo isn't letting Glenn hit the open market. Franchising Glenn will allow more time to finalize an extension. Glenn would make $13.5 million if he plays under the tag.
Feb 27 - 4:57 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports it would be "tough cap-wise" for the Bills to use the franchise tag on impending free agent LT Cordy Glenn.

Buffalo is one of the few organizations dealing with cap issues this offseason. The expected release of DE Mario Williams should create enough space to tag Glenn, but the Bills also want to re-sign LG Richie Incognito and likely want to add some talent at linebacker as well. It will be difficult to accomplish those goals with Glenn taking up an estimated $13.5 million on the cap. Signing Glenn to a long-term deal is Buffalo's best option.
Feb 23 - 9:19 AM

A source told the Buffalo News that impending free agent LT Cordy Glenn's "floor" could be $10 million annually on a new contract.

That sounds more than reasonable. Glenn won't turn 27 until after Week 1 next season and can play both guard and tackle. He's also coming off a strong season that saw him grade out as PFF's No. 6 overall left tackle, excelling in pass protection. The Bills are up to their neck with the salary cap, but have ways around it. Getting a long-term deal done with Glenn is one of their top priorities. If not, Buffalo will almost certainly use the franchise tag on him.
Jan 27 - 11:14 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said re-signing impending free agent LT Cordy Glenn is "imperative."

Whaley said the same of LG Richie Incognito. "When you look at that position (offensive line) as a whole," Whaley said, "you like to have those guys with some continuity and playing together and basically playing like one." Glenn has been a rock on an ever-changing offensive line, starting at left tackle in every game since Week 9 of his rookie year. Buffalo should do everything they can to keep the Glenn-Incognito partnership together.
Jan 14 - 12:18 PM

At his season-ending press conference, GM Doug Whaley called re-signing free agents LT Cordy Glenn and LG Richie Incognito "major points of emphasis."

Both Glenn and Incognito are coming off excellent seasons, Glenn as a pass protector and Incognito all around. Incognito, in fact, earned PFF's No. 2 overall guard rating behind only Ravens RG Marshal Yanda. Glenn turned 26 years old last September. He'll have a huge market if he makes it there.
Jan 4 - 4:29 PM

Cordy Glenn and Seantrel Henderson alternated between right and left tackle during the Bills' offseason program.

Glenn only played left tackle at minicamp but that was because Henderson was demoted to the third team after missing the first day of practice. The Bills could be grooming Henderson to play left tackle when Glenn's contract expires after this season. With Nigel Bradham, Marcell Dareus and Stephon Gilmore also headed for free agency, re-signing Glenn won't be Buffalo's top priority.
