Here’s the Bills news of note for Feb. 28th.
Among the Bills more important upcoming free agent decisions is starting right tackle Jordan Mills. Soon to be an unrestricted free agent, Mills, in an appearance on the John Murphy Show, confirmed that his agent will be meeting with the Bills in Indianapolis later this week.
“He’s more excited than I am,” Mills said. “He’s talked to the Bills a couple of times, but he’s really going to talk to them at the combine this week. So I’m anticipating a lot of good things coming from the Bills and some other teams.”
Mills said it is his preference to re-sign with Buffalo knowing the continuity of Buffalo’s offensive line, with the other four starters up front under contract.
“The Bills are in the mix and they know they’re in the mix, but it comes down to negotiations with my agent, knowing other things could happen,” said Mills. “They really appreciated what I did since I’ve been here. I talked to (GM Doug) Whaley and I know he’s going to make an effort to get me back there.
“At the same time there are other obligations and we had like 24 free agents on the team this year. But I’m pretty sure he wants to get me back there and I know he’s going to make the attempt. We’re going to know more this week at the combine and when March 9th comes we’ll definitely know more. We’ll see.”

“In the last 10 years there have been 26 first round QBs drafted,” said Mayock. “I’m going to discount…
