As part of the trade, the Bengals and Bills agreed to swap first-round picks, with Buffalo receiving the No. 12 overall selection and Cincinnati receiving No. 21 overall, a source confirmed to ESPN. Cincy also received Buffalo's fifth-round pick in exchange for the Bengals' sixth-round selection.
The trade means that the Bengals will now be on the hook for what's left of Glenn's five-year, $60 million deal that he signed back in May 2016.

In the Esquire profile, titled, " Shia LaBeouf is Ready to Talk About It", the actor says of his past behavior, "I fucked up". Black Panther' proved there's a demand for more diverse superhero movies. "I'm a buffoon", the actor said.
This move gets the Bills in much better position to jump up into the top five picks of the first round and land a top quarterback. More important to them is dumping Glenn's salary, who has a base salary of $9.25 million in 2018 with a $2 million roster bonus on top of that. He only played six games this past season due to injury.
Meanwhile, the Bengals have acquired a talented offensive lineman that can stabilize the left side of the offensive line on Pro Bowl quarterback Andy Dalton's blind side. Adding one or more of their second- or third-round picks to the deal could push Buffalo higher in the order. Dawkins started 11 games last season as a rookie in place of Glenn. A big hit that they will take is his contract, but it will be worth it if Glenn can keep defenders off of Dalton.
On a day in which many were focused on National Football League free agency tampering beginning, the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals were hard at work in building their own futures.
