Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Jordan Mills is taking a free agency visit with the Houston Texans.
Houston Texans are expected to meet with Buffalo Bills former starting right tackle Jordan Mills. He is an unrestricted free agent after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, and he started 29 of the 32 games for the Bears at right tackle.
Mills spent his first two seasons with the Bears before being waived, he was claimed by the Dallas Cowboys but waived a couple of days later and signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad. Mills signed with the Bills during the 2015 NFL season and started in five of the ten games he played in his first season in Buffalo.
Mills played one more season under his original contract before signing a two-year contract extension worth up to $4 million with the Bills. He started a total of 53 games in his time in Buffalo. Mills has started in 82 of the 87 games he has played since entering the league in 2013.
Texans general manager Brian Gaine spent the 2017 season with the Bills’ front office as the vice president of player personnel and had a close look at Mills performance. Entering his second season as the general manager, Gaine has had a history of bringing players to the Texans that were with Bills while he was working in Buffalo’s front office.
Texans projected right tackle in 2019, Seantrel Henderson, cornerback Shareece Wright, linebacker Tyrell Adams, and quarterback Joe Webb III were all part of the Texans active roster in the 2018 season after being with the Bills the season prior.
