Report: Jon Bon Jovi wants to buy the Buffalo Bills
Rock star Jon Bon Jovi is interested in bidding on the Buffalo Bills as part of a Toronto-based ownership group, reports the Associated Press. It is unclear whether the group would want to move the team to Toronto, where the Bills have played some games each season since 2008.
The ownership group reportedly also includes Larry Tanenbaum and the Rogers family. Tanenbaum is the chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which controls the NHL's Maple Leafs and the NBA's Raptors. The Rogers family controls Rogers Communications, the Toronto-based communications and media company.
Bon Jovi is one of the founders and majority owners of the Philadelphia Soul, an Arena Football League team.
The Bills are for sale after owner Ralph Wilson died in March. Bon Jovi is not the only famous name to come up in the Bills' ownership search: Donald Trump has also said that he is considering bidding on the team.
