Bengals Making Moves (Cordy Glenn Trade)

Apparently, the Browns aren't the only Ohio team making moves this offseason.  In perhaps the least Bengal-esque move ever, yesterday, the Bengals traded to acquire Bills' LT Cordy Glenn.  Compensation also included swapping 1st Rounders (21st for the 12th), as well as a 6th Rounder for the Bills' 5th.  I've heard swapping the 1st Rounders amounts to giving up a 2nd Rounder in the "draft pick value" chart. 

Can't say I knew a ton about Glenn before yesterday.  It sounds like he's an upper-tier LT when healthy, but has been bit by the injury bug the last two years.

What does everybody think? 

It seems like a fair (if not cheap) price to pay in exchange for an LT with the ability to be one of the better ones in the league.  And given the Bengals' gaping hole at that position, it makes a lot of sense.  Add in the fact that there didn't seem to be a great OT pick at 12 who fills a need, and this seems to be a no-brainer.

At the very least, the Bengals made a move with the potential to address a glaring need.  Even if it backfires, at least they're trying.
