Former Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn began this offseason with a franchise tag from the Buffalo Bills, but the franchise guaranteed him a lot more money Tuesday.
Glenn agreed to a five-year contract with the Bills worth $65 million, according to several reports. There have been conflicting reports on the amount of guaranteed money in the contract. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the contract calls for $36 million guaranteed, while Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported it includes $26.5 million guaranteed.
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk offered more details, reporting that Glenn will earn $19 million in the first year of the deal and $30 over the first two seasons. Glenn was a second-round pick by the Bills in 2012 and has started 61 of 64 games in his four-year NFL career.
