Donald Trump told WBEN radio in Buffalo, N.Y. on Tuesday that he has been approached by an unnamed group about possibly investing in the Bills, according to an ESPN report citing the radio interview.

The billionaire real estate mogul said he was called by the group to consider looking into whether he would want to invest in the team in the wake of the passing last week of Bills owner Ralph Wilson. Trump said he will of course consider the offer to become a part of the organization, adding that he would like to see the team remain in Buffalo as speculation grows as to where the Bills may be headed under a new team owner.

"People have actually talked to me about the Bills. I mean, the group of people called me -- would I be interested in investing, and I'll take a look at it. I mean, I look at a lot of things. I'll take a look at it...I know so many people in Buffalo, and they have asked me about looking at that and I certainly would look at it, but I would ... if it were me, I'd keep the team in Buffalo. I think it's something that is really vital to the area. ... It would be catastrophic, in my opinion, if Buffalo lost the Buffalo Bills."

The 67-year-old Queens native said he's "very good friends" with Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is currently undergoing cancer treatments in New York City, with the two speaking as recently as this week. Kelly had said in a 2010 interview that he will do his best to keep the team in Buffalo after the owner dies.
