Chicago Bears roster update: Jordan Mills cut; Kyle Long to play right tackle

The Chicago Bears have cut offensive tackle Jordan Mills-- come see what this does to the current 53-man roster.

One of the biggest offensive concerns for the Chicago Bears is the right tackle position, and on Sunday the team decided to part ways with 2013 5th round draft pick Jordan Mills.

Mills was an experimental Guard/ Tackle hybrid, and with his size and athleticism, he was a player that two different coaching regimes tried to find a place for. Unfortunately, Mills never seemed to bounce back from a broken foot that was sustained in the final regular season game of his rookie season, and the Bears have finally decided it was time to part ways.

Earlier on Saturday, the Bears claimed offensive guard Patrick Omameh (LINK).  Trying to read between the lines, this could likely mean that Kyle Long will finally kick out to right tackle, and either Vladimir Ducasse or Omameh will start out in Mills' old position.  Omameh started all 16 games last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that isn't exactly an offensive line that could be bragged about.

How will the Chicago Bears offensive line shake out? They've only got a few days to figure it out.  Stay tuned...
