Bengals listening to offers for Cordy Glenn, per report

This needs to happen.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Could the Bengals shock the world and actually make a move prior to the NFL trade deadline?

I’d still say no, but if there is someone who needs to be dealt, it’s Cordy Glenn.

The embattled left tackle has made it clear he wants out of here, even telling the team to cut him. That, as well as a confrontation in practice with an unnamed coach, led to the Bengals suspended Glenn for a game in Week 7, and they didn’t even bring him to London for Sunday’s Week 8 loss to the Rams.

Turns out, the Bengals are listening to offers for Glenn ahead of Tuesday’s 4pm EST deadline to make trades, according to Tyler Dragon.

If the Bengals manage to trade Glenn, I can’t imagine it’s anything more than a fifth-round pick, and I imagine it will be closer to a conditional sixth or seventh-round pick that could be higher if he reaches certain playing incentives.

There are plenty of teams that could use help at either tackle spot, and Glenn is also capable of playing guard, so there should be plenty of interest in him.

The real question is will any offer be enough for the Bengals to go against their stubborn ways and actually trade a player?
