The Cincinnati Bengals have traded for a quality starting left tackle in former Bills lineman Cordy Glenn.
The news came as quite a surprise and Bengals fans were mostly thrilled. Seriously, nothing has made us excited on the day that free agency legal tampering starts in as long as I can remember.
The reactions were great and came in quick and with hysterics. Here are some of the best reactions to the Bengals trading for Glenn. Leave yours in the comments section!

Clint Boling and Cordy Glenn played together at Georgia from 2008 to 2010.— Goodberry (@JoeGoodberry) March 12, 2018
Boling played LT while Glenn played LG. For the Bengals, it'll be swapped.
Awesome! Bengals needed a Quality starter at Tackle after letting Whitworth walk. Great for Mixon and Dalton to block and protect. Swapping 1st rd is good compensation for getting a quality starter. Hopefully a OT slides to pick 21 #whodey— Eric D'Sky (@Skee_Brewery) March 12, 2018

But really, WHATTTTT?!
The Bills and Bengals have been paling out ever since Andy Dalton and Tyler Boyd sent the Bills to the playoffs for the first time in 15 years.
The biggest loser in this trade: Cedric Ogbuehi.
The bills owe us Glenn, we handed em a playoff spot last https://t.co/TJb4MCWvLe— Brian V (@BVillono) March 12, 2018
A lot of people just couldn’t believe it and didn’t know what to do with themselves...

I was having a dream that the Bengals made a trade. pic.twitter.com/dW8fi7C0Z5— Houston Crawford (@htown) March 12, 2018
Good for both. Bills continue to work on moving up to get their QB. Bengals get a good deal on a quality LT that has had some nagging injuries, but is still a good player and will step in day 1 and play his ass off.— Bryan Metz (@BryanMetz11) March 12, 2018
Here’s how it all evens out, if you buy into this...
On the traditional chart, they went -400 in the first, +8 or so in the 5th, -392 is roughly equal to pick 51 in the draft. By the traditional chart, they gave up a 2nd rounder of value. https://t.co/ukCN6XMUoq— Jake Liscow (@Jake_NFL) March 12, 2018
This is largely how Bengals fans feel...
Holy shit we've made a trade. Welcome to the NFL Bengals fans. https://t.co/CxRmPTuKDZ— Joe Howdyshell (@Jhowdy54) March 12, 2018
But then again, there are always some people who are just perpetually mad.
