According to a CBS report, the Seattle Seahawks recently inquired with the Buffalo Bills about the possibility of trading for left tackle Cordy Glenn, but those talks didn't go very far due to his high salary coupled with the "considerable haul" it would take to get him.

Glenn missed two games in a row earlier this season due to a foot/ankle injury. He returned to the lineup Week 5 at Cincinnati, but didn't play a single offensive snap. He played four plays total, all on special teams. Rookie Dion Dawkins started in place of the six-year veteran in all three games.

Glenn missed five games last season due to injuries after starting all 16 contests for three straight years. The 28-year old signed a five year, $60 million contract with the Bills on May 5, 2016, four years after the team made the Georgia product their second round pick and shortly after they had placed the franchise tag on him.

Glenn currently counts $14.2 million towards the Bills' 2017 salary cap. He's scheduled to count $14.5 million in 2018. According to the salary cap website Spotrac, if Glenn were traded he would still count $9.6 million against the teams' cap next year, netting them a cap savings of roughly $5 million.

According to the report by Jason LaCanfora, the Seahawks, desperate for offensive line help, also inquired with the Houston Texans about left tackle Duane Brown, who is still holding out over a contract dispute.

The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, October 31.
