Glenn has started all 29 games he's played the past two season. Of Glenn, the report said:

"A huge man at 345 pounds, his game has improved while his sacks and hurries allowed have dwindled."

Alonzo was a finalist for NFL Rookie of the Year this past season. He was fourth in the NFL in tackles and added four interceptions. Of Alonso, the report said:

"It sure looks like the Bills made a genius second-round pick here. Just watch Alonzo play: He's all over the place, as evidenced by his 159 tackles (nine for a loss) and five turnovers forced."

Andrew Luck, Eddie Lacy, Josh Gordon and Keenan Allen were among the other players named to the roster.
