Today, the Buffalo Bills got one of their biggest things off their checklist by extending their Pro Bowl Left Tackle Cordy Glenn. Glenn agreed to a new deal that will keep him in Buffalo for the next five years at a lucrative price of $65 mil, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Now, he will receive $36.5 mil guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, but Mike Florio reported that Glenn will get $26.5 mil fully guaranteed. So he has a chance to earn up to $36.5 mil in guaranteed money.
Now, Glenn signed his franchise tender due to the fact he wanted to stay in Buffalo, but he was also optimistic on landing a new deal, which he has been calm about. His appreciable play and patience landed him this deal. Glenn has been reliable in Buffalo as he started 61 games for them.
Interestingly, the Georgia product only allowed 2 quarterback sacks, which was the second best in the league for tackles that started 75% of their snaps according to Pro Football Focus. Joe Thomas tied Glenn in that stat. Lastly, Glenn was second in least amount of sacks allowed, second in quarterback hits allowed and eighth in quarterback hurries allowed.
Finally, 26-year-old was rated as the number tenth best overall tackle and fifth best left tackle last season by Pro Football Focus. He has definitely out played that rookie contract and also, he is the anchor to that offensive line that should be even better than last year.
