The Chicago Bears waived right tackle Jordan Mills and claimed a few new faces Sunday afternoon as they continued to revise their roster.

Mills started all 29 games during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. He called the move to waive him "shocking," according to the Chicago Tribune.

"It's kind of shocking. But it's a part of the business," Mills told the Tribune. "Some things, you never want it to happen to you, but you've got to move on from it. I wish the Bears nothing but success this year. It's saddening, but the Bears are always going to be a part of me."

The Bears also claimed defensive back Harold Jones-Quartey and offensive lineman Patrick Omameh.

Jones-Quartey was waived by the Arizona Cardinals after he signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Findlay in Ohio. He played in 43 games in four seasons at Findlay, collecting 241 tackles, nine tackles for losses, four interceptions, 21 passes defensed and three forced fumbles.

Omameh was waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after starting all 16 games at right guard for the team in 2014. He entered the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers out of the University of Michigan.

In another roster move Sunday, the Bears terminated their contract with veteran safety Sherrod Martin. The safety appeared in 72 games with 38 starts over five seasons with the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville. In that time, Martin collected 195 tackles and eight interceptions.

The Bears trimmed their roster to 53 before Saturday's deadline, keeping outside linebacker Willie Young.
