Bills coach Sean McDermott said RT Jordan Mills "had one heck of an offseason."
Mills was brought back on a cheap, two-year deal following a bad 2016, and the Bills added a potential replacement in second-rounder Dion Dawkins. Mills is not going down without a fight, but he has been a below-average starter for his entire career. Even if he has been great this offseason, he still has a lot to prove. Jun 15 - 11:57 AM

Bills re-signed RT Jordan Mills to a two-year, $4 million contract.

Mills is coming off a down year, grading as a bottom-15 tackle at PFF. He's returning for slightly over the veteran minimum. Re-signing Mills won't prevent Buffalo from upgrading on him as their starter.
Mar 11 - 4:58 PM

Impending free agent RT Jordan Mills said his preference is to re-sign with the Bills.

Mills said his agent plans to meet with Buffalo at the Combine. "The Bills are in the mix and they know they’re in the mix, but it comes down to negotiations with my agent," Mills said. A fifth-round pick by the Bears in 2013, Mills rehabbed his value somewhat in Buffalo after bouncing around the league in 2015. Still, he is a below average starter better suited to a swing role.
Feb 28 - 9:39 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Sep 6, 2015 02:35:00 PM

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.
