Bills free agents 2016: Cordy Glenn, Richie Incognito are high-priority targets

Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito have been great for the Bills this season, and the team wants to keep them around for a good, long while.

Speaking with WGR 550's The Howard Simon Show on Tuesday morning, Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley said that the team will prioritize re-signing starting offensive linemen Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito once the 2015 season has concluded.

"I've talked to both of those guys, and we've talked to their representation, that after the season, we will be putting a full-force effort to try to get those guys under contract," Whaley said of the Bills' starting left tackle and left guard.

"We look at it (as) if we can keep that line together, that's one part of the football team that we can lay our hat on," Whaley later continued. "They've been playing extremely well, and this is their first year together. Imagine next year, when it's year two, and if we can keep them three years, then that's when you start talking about the consistency and the cohesiveness up front. With Coach Ryan's philosophy, it starts up front on both sides of the football."

Glenn and Incognito are both scheduled for unrestricted free agency this coming March. The two veteran linemen have been the Bills' best this season, and along with tailback LeSean McCoy have spearheaded a Bills running game that currently ranks in the top five in the NFL in most rushing categories.

The Bills are a bit cap-strapped as it stands today - many are very quick to point that out - but they will also have several avenues with which to clear space to not only re-sign Glenn and Incognito, but take care of some other pressing business, as well. But first: a four-game playoff push.
