Bills Place Cordy Glenn on IR; Will Undergo Offseason Foot Surgery

Recommended Posts

I want to keep Glenn.  I've never been someone to hold nagging injuries against a player (except Jarius Byrd...there's just something about that guy...).

 

I really hope we're not trying to trade him for a 4th round pick. Handing talent away for nothing is frustrating. If Glen can fully heal, he will be a starting LT for possibly 10 years.

hope they can get something for him this off season. wont be much given his injury history but they need to deal him none the less.

 

useless player.

The only issue for me is the nature of his injury.  When healthy, he is a very good left tackle.  If this injury is going to be a chronic issue for him going forward, then yes, it's maybe time for him to retire.  If he just needs surgery or time to fully recuperate, then there is no reason he couldn't combine with Dawkins to create an outstanding tackle tandem for the Bills.

We have a starting LT already. A younger, cheaper, and healthier one.

OLineman with those type injuries will likely not play up to his level of the past again.

 

time to move on from him.

Why can't we keep both guys?

Because one guy's a behemoth with not one but two bad feet?

 

NOT a good combination.

Sucks for Glenn. Wouldn’t mind keeping him around though. Ideally he stays at LT and Dawkins holds down the right side. We would just need an upgrade at RG and the line would be strong.

I think Cordy is a Bill next season, or at least part of next season.  He'll have to start a few games to prove he's healthy which should get some trade value for him.

Hope this works out, he's been durable until this season.

Let him get fixed and heal up proper. He will be a beast when he returns.

Hope your right and we do not sell low again. Finding a solid LT is not a easy chore by any means.

I'm fine with keeping him another year... We can move him or dawkins to the right, and prevents us having to fill another hole.

 

Assuming, of course, he actually steps on the field.

even after surgery he'll be at risk of re aggravating one or both feet again? I see no value in that and they're better off moving on from him. 

 

besides, wouldn't there be some money to be saved from that contract if they were to trade him?

It would be a folly to trade Glenn.  There's no reason to do so when you don't have to pay Dawkins until after the 2020 season.

 

Move Glenn over to RT and let Mills be the swing OT.  Cut Ducasse and draft an OG to compete with Miller, and you'll go into the 2018 season with a starting 5 of:

 

Dawkins-Richie-Wood-Miller-Glenn

 

...backed up by Mills, Groy, and a rookie.
