With NFL free agency starting soon, the Cincinnati Bengals still have yet to part ways with embattled tackle Cordy Glenn.
The assumption has been the Bengals will eventually cut Glenn and save almost $10 million in cap space, and that’s still highly likely to be what ultimately happens.
But before then, the team is trying to see if any other team would actually trade for Glenn, according to ESPN reporter Jenna Laine.
Should say Glenn would likely be released if no trade partner found. It would free up $9.5 million in salary cap space for the Bengals https://t.co/EoBKGZUgqv— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) March 2, 2020
It’s very hard to envision any NFL team being foolish enough to trade for Glenn unless Hue Jackson is a head coach somewhere, so it’s really a matter of when, not if the Bengals cut Glenn.
With A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, Darqueze Dennard, Tyler Eifert, Shawn Williams, William Jackson, Auden Tate, Carl Lawson and possibly John Ross (if his 5th-year option isn’t picked) becoming free agents over the next year, the Bengals can’t afford to waste money on a problem child like Glenn who wants out of Cincinnati anyhow.
