5 Bengals players who might be finished in Cincinnati
After suffering a concussion during the 2019 pre-season, Cordy Glenn sat out until week 11 despite being cleared by team doctors, causing tempers to flare within the organization. At that time, it became widely speculated that Glenn would either be cut or traded as soon as possible. However, things have settled down considerably since the widely known dispute.
Still, with how strained the relationship between the two parties became, it may be better for both sides to part ways.
For the Bengals, it may be difficult to let the former Georgia Bulldog go, considering their weakness along the offensive trenches.
On the other hand, Zac Taylor continues to harp on how important the culture he’s building is going to be for the success of the franchise moving forward. On several occasions, he’s referred to how the guys in the locker room never gave up, despite an extremely disappointing year. The outside world will never know for certain how things played out with Glenn last season, but there was a sense that he no longer wanted to be with the franchise.
That fact alone may be enough for Taylor to pull the plug on Glenn’s time in a Bengal uniform. Add in the fact that the team can save $9.5 million with zero dead cap space, and it seems more likely than not number 77 will be on the move.
Thankfully for the Bengals, the saved money would allow them to go after an offensive lineman in free agency, and the 2020 draft class is being touted for its depth at offensive tackle.
