The Cincinnati Bengals have released offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, clearing up $9.5 million that they can use to go after free agents next week.

The Cincinnati Bengals have released offensive tackle Cordy Glenn from the active roster. The Bengals haven’t seen eye to eye with Glenn the last few years since acquiring him from Buffalo.

Cordy Glenn, 30, hasn’t been the player the Bengals thought he would be, especially since they moved down almost 15 spots in the 2018 draft to acquire him. He has struggled with injuries missing 13 games the last two seasons with Cincinnati. Glenn only missed three games in 2018. In 2019, he suffered from an ongoing concussion, resulting in him accusing the medical staff of mistreating him. Glenn has been outspoken over the last few months about him wanting to be either released or traded. The Bengals were shopping him to other teams but had no luck.

This move clears up a whopping $9.5 million for the Bengals to spend when free agency opens up next week. They can make other moves to clear up even more cap, such as trading/releasing quarterback Andy Dalton and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. There have been rumors of multiple teams interested in trading for Dalton. Given his team-friendly contract, the team shouldn’t have a problem moving him.

Glenn should be able to find a new home, either as a depth piece or a potential fit in the interior. He will likely be forced to take a small one year contract given his injury history. The Bengals were planning on using him there in 2019 before rookie Jonah Williams was ruled out for the year in mid-June. Williams will return in 2020 as the likely starter at left tackle if he’s healthy. The 2019 first-round pick should be an upgrade on a terrible offensive line.
