ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Bills offensive tackle Jordan Mills is staying in Buffalo after signing the team's qualifying offer.
Mills was a restricted free agent, whose rights were retained by the team on March 7.
Mills had five starts in 10 games with Buffalo after the Bills signed him off the Detroit Lions' practice squad in October. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2013 draft by Chicago, and spent his first two seasons playing for the Bears.
He provides the Bills depth on a line that's set to have all five starters return from last season.
