The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne said the Bills' right tackle job is "Jordan Mills' to lose."
With Seantrel Henderson's (Crohn's) future still in limbo and Cyrus Kouandjio terrible, Mills is basically the only option. Still, offensive line coach Aaron Kromer said Mills has done "a solid job" during the offseason program. The left side of the offensive line is set with LT Cordy Glenn and LG Richie Incognito, but the Bills need to see some dramatic improvement on the right side this season. Jun 21 - 10:22 AM

Jordan Mills opened Bills OTAs as the starter at right tackle.

GM Doug Whaley said Tuesday he would be disappointed if Cyrus Kouandjio did not win the right tackle job, but he is clearly behind Mills right now. A fifth-round pick of the Bears in 2013, Mills struggled in five starts last season.
May 24 - 12:18 PM

The Buffalo News considers Jordan Mills the "likely starter" at right tackle.

The Bills missed out on Matt Slauson and didn’t add any offensive linemen in the draft. With Seantrel Henderson’s playing status up in the air, Mills should enter training camp as the favorite to bookend Cordy Glenn, though that could change if Henderson gets cleared. Third-year RT Cyrus Kouandjio is also in the mix to start.
May 11 - 7:42 PM

The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne believes Jordan Mills will open the offseason program as the Bills' starter at right tackle.

That is exactly where he finished last season after being signed off the Lions' practice squad in October. With Seantrel Henderson still struggling with Crohn's disease and former second-rounder Cyrus Kouandjio apparently in the dog house, Mills has the inside track at this point in the offseason, but the Bills will likely look to add talent in the draft. Mills signed his one-year, $1.67 million tender last week.
Mar 31 - 11:11 AM

Bills re-signed OT Jordan Mills to a one-year, $1.67 million contract.

Plucked off the Lions' practice squad last October, Mills ended up starting the final five games of the season at right tackle. With RT Seantrel Henderson's (Crohn's disease) status uncertain, Mills is an insurance policy on Tyrod Taylor's right side.
Mar 24 - 7:30 PM

Bills signed RT Jordan Mills off the Lions' practice squad.

Mills started 29 games for the Bears the past two seasons, but wasn't particularly effective and was part of Chicago's final cuts in September. The Bills lost RT Seantrel Henderson to a concussion on Sunday. Cyrus Kouandjio will likely draw the start in Week 7 against the Jaguars when the two teams face off in London.

Cowboys claimed OT Jordan Mills off waivers from the Bears.

Mills has loads of experience, but struggled mightily the past two seasons. He's unlikely to see the field for the best offensive line in football.

Bears waived OT Jordan Mills.

The Bears needed the roster spot after claiming Harold Jones-Quartey and Patrick Omameh off waivers on Sunday. Mills was one of the worst starting right tackles in the league in over the last two seasons. He lost his job to Charles Leno this preseason.

Bears declared RT Jordan Mills, LB Khaseem Greene, LB Darryl Sharpton, OT Eben Britton, DE Trevor Scott, KR Chris Williams and CB Terrance Mitchell inactive for Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Mills is missing with a rib issue, but was on the field for pre-game warmups. He could return next week. Sharpton (hamstring), Britton (illness), Williams (hamstring) and Scott (knee) are week to week.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 11:39:00 AM

The Bears are moving RT Jordan Mills to left guard.

With LG Matt Slauson tearing his pec in Week 8, the Bears are shuffling their line. Mills will slide inside between LT Jermon Bushrod and C Roberto Garza, with rookie Michael Ola taking over at right tackle next to RG Kyle Long.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 06:40:00 PM

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is expected to be ready for Sunday's opener against the Bills.

Mills was held out for the entire preseason as he completed his recovery from foot surgery, but resumed practicing on August 20. "If I had to (play), I would have," Mills said of August. "I'm very ready." A 2013 fifth-rounder, Mills was among the league's poorer right tackles as a rookie.
Mon, Sep 1, 2014 01:53:00 PM

There's concern that Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is in danger of missing Week 1.

Mills is listed as day to day, but he hasn't played in a preseason game yet and has been spotted with a walking boot sporadically throughout camp. He underwent left foot surgery in January. When asked if his starting right tackle is in doubt for the opener, coach Marc Trestman said, "I'm hopeful that it's not. I'm not trying to get you to insinuate anything. I'm just hopeful it's not." Mills was the weakest member of the Bears' improved line last season.

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) has been medically cleared for the start of camp.

Mills had surgery to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal way back in January. Although Mills is billed as having solidified the Bears' right tackle position last year, he was the weak link of Chicago's offensive line. PFF charged Mills with 62 QB hurries allowed, the most in the NFL among tackles. The Bears will hope for improvement in Mills' second year. Mills won't turn 24 until Christmas eve.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 09:23:00 PM

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is sitting out mandatory minicamp.

According to coach Marc Trestman, the Bears are trying to be "smart" with Mills' healing process. Mills suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal last Week 17, but avoided a dreaded Lisfranc injury. He could begin camp on the active/PUP list, but is fully expected to be ready for Week 1.
Tue, Jun 17, 2014 05:28:00 PM

Bears RT Jordan Mills (foot) is on track to participate in OTAs.

Mills underwent foot surgery in January, but isn't expected to miss a significant portion of the offseason program. A fifth-round pick last year, Mills started all 16 games as a rookie and will return as a starter when healthy.
