The Buffalo Bills have re-signed their starting left tackle, Cordy Glenn, to a five-year deal worth $65 million, per reports from Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Schefter reports that the deal includes $36 million in guarantees, while Rapoport reports that $26.5 million is fully guaranteed - and that that's the second-highest such figure ever given to an offensive tackle. Glenn will make $19 million in the first year of the deal, and $30 million over the first two, per Schefter.

In #Bills LT Cordy Glenn's 5-year, $65M deal, he gets $26.5M fully guaranteed, 2nd highest ever for an OT.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 3, 2016
Glenn had originally been scheduled to make $13.706 million in 2016, based on the terms of the franchise tender that he signed back in March. It's not yet clear how the terms of his new deal will affect his 2016 salary cap hit; that's the next bit of info to full.
For now, however, the news is generally good: the Bills have re-signed their 26 (soon to be 27) year old starting left tackle to a long-term contract extension. Glenn has been the Bills' starting left tackle since the team made him a second-round pick out of Georgia in 2012, and he has missed just three starts in his four pro seasons to date.
