Bills may have new owner this fall; It might be Donald Trump

Scott Halleran

The Bills hope to have a new owner by this Fall, and could Donald Trump be the one?

Donald Trump previously stated that he had interest in purchasing the Buffalo Bills, and he wasn't kidding. The billionaire says he's sincere in his wish to purchase the Bills while also keeping them in New York.

"I'm going to give it a heavy shot," Trump told The Buffalo News on Monday. "I would love to do it, and if I can do it I'm keeping it in Buffalo.

"I live in New York, and it's easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place. Where am I going to move it, some place on the other side of the country, where I have to travel for five hours?

"I have a track record that's pretty much unparalleled, but that doesn't mean that I pay stupid prices. Somebody could come out and bid through the roof for the Bills, something crazy. In which case, I'm sorry I can't do anything about that.

"You have to be sane. But maybe there's not going to be any other bids. You never know with these things."

The Bills are in a bit of quandary after owner Ralph Wilson passed away, and speculation that the team could leave Buffalo eventually has put a black cloud over the franchise.

Tim Graham of the the Buffalo News is also reporting his Bills sources have told him a sale could be finalized as soon as October, the earliest NFL owners could vote on it, although approval more likely would happen at the December or March meeting.
