Is Cordy Glenn key to Bills season?

Offensive lineman Cordy Glenn may just be the key to the Buffalo Bills 2012 season. Now he's under contract.

ATL: Draftees signing fast

Since the 2012 NFL Draft picks have been signing their respective deals faster than years before. Part of the reason is the new CBA. Brian McIntyre writes **More ...**

The Bills announced that second-round draft pick Cordy Glenn came to terms on a contract Friday. The No. 41 overall pick is projected to be the team's left tackle.

Some draft analysts thought the massive 6-foot-6, 345-pounder was better suited to play guard. But the Bills have made it clear that Glenn will protect Ryan Fitzpatrick's blind side as a rookie. Left tackle has been a longtime sore spot in Buffalo.

As important as the Mario Williams signing was for Buffalo, Glenn's ability to improve the team's protection is just as vital.

With Glenn and Stephon Gilmore under contract, only third round wideout T.J. Graham remains unsigned. (Continuing a league-wide trend of fast signings).
