The Buffalo Bills could have a new owner as soon as October, The Buffalo News' Tim Graham reported Thursday.

The team's efforts to sell in the wake of longtime owner Ralph Wilson's death last week are moving quickly. And if the process keeps going smoothly, a deal could be agreed to in time for the NFL owners' annual session in October. To complete a sale, 75 percent of the league's owners must approve.

According to Graham, however, a sale is probably more likely to be approved in December, at the annual labor meeting, or at the annual owners' meeting in March.

Mary Wilson, the widow of Ralph, took over control of the team on Thursday, something that served as a formality. Ralph Wilson was the founder and only owner of the franchise. He died last week at the age of 95.
