The Bills have moved up the first round of this year's National Football League draft by sending Cordy Glenn and the No. 21 pick to the Bengals in exchange for the No. 12 choice, The MMQB's Albert Breer reports.

The trade will now see the Bills take a step closer to landing their desired future franchise quarterback, moving up to 12th in the draft, while the Bengals move down to 21st overall. The teams will swap a series of draft picks as part of the deal, which bolsters the Bengals in the trenches for next season.

Prior to the arrival of Bills GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott, Glenn signed a five-year, $60 million extension in 2016.

Glenn, 28, has played six seasons with the Bills since being selected out of Georgia in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Why they shouldn't sign Jimmy Graham — Packers free agency
A five-time Pro Bowler, Graham picked Aaron Rodgers and the Packers over a reunion with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints . The Packers have always been on the hunt for a tight end to add a new dynamic to the team's offense.

2015 first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi hasn't progressed as expected, while Clint Boling is more suited to guard than tackle, despite his strong performance at tackle toward the end of the 2017 season. Nathan Peterman, the team's fifth-round pick in 2017, will be the only quarterback on the roster once Taylor is officially traded.

It isn't clear how much the Colts would be able to get for the No. 3 overall pick from the Bills but it would nearly certainly include the No. 12 and No. 22 overall picks as the Bills own both. ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that the Bills will send their first 5th round pick (158 overall) to Cincinnati for the Bengals' 6th rounder (187 overall). He only played in eleven games these season while rookie Dion Dawkins saw playing time in 16 games.

Trading away Glenn's cap space will allow the Bills to target a top QB in free agency and make the team capable of competing for other free agents that would help improve other areas of the team. The Bills will save more than $4 million on the cap in the deal.

Reportedly, the Bengals will assume all of Glenn's current contract. He missed two games because of an ankle injury and three games because of a back injury in 2016.
