Buffalo also traded its fifth-round pick (158th overall) for the Bengals' sixth-round selection (187th) as part of the Bill's second major trade in three days.

The Bills will be able to move further up in the first round to select the quarterback of their future and the Bengals get a veteran left tackle and are able to focus on the rest of the line moving forward.

The move shakes up not just NFL free agency, but the entire outlook of the 2018 NFL Draft.

In terms of the value on the NFL Trade Value Chart, the Bills are getting roughly a mid-second round pick back for Glenn. The team could still package their draft picks to move up higher in the draft if they really want someone specific. It limits the team's options in free agency, but shores up the team's biggest issue. An ankle injury also hampered his availability during the 2016 season, when he missed five games.

Is Anyone Better Than Cristiano Ronaldo Right Now?
With two goals for Real Madrid vs Eibar on Saturday, Ronaldo has averaged 1.7 goals per match over his last 10 appearances. Ramos went off on minute 73 before Ronaldo had scored his second goal to give Real Madrid all three points in a 2-1 win.

Using a conventional draft trade value chart, the Bills could package the Bengals' first-round pick and the No. 22 selection (acquired previous year from Kansas City) to move as high as No. 4. The upside for the Bengals is that if Glenn doesn't get healthy or doesn't work out in Cincinnati, they can release him after the 2018 season without taking a cap hit.

Despite any concerns about Glenn's durability, he's a sensible addition for the Bengals after their offensive line was an area of weakness in 2017.

However, with the New York Jets and Denver Broncos also possibly needing to trade up to grab a quarterback, the Colts may be in a prime position for a bidding war that now includes the Bills.

The 28-year-old Glenn was once looked at as one of the best offensive linemen in the league. All Whitworth did previous year was make the Rams instant contenders.
