Report: Donald Trump's Bills bid under $900 million

Wednesday August 6th, 2014

The bid that Donald Trump made for the Buffalo Bills was less than $900 million, reports Mike Ozanian of Forbes. Ozanian was told that Trump's offer was in the "mid-800s."

Al Michaels recently said that Trump told him he bid $1 billion on the Bills. 

Trump's bid, which was non-binding, was one of just three that made it past the first round of the process. The other bidders were Sabres owner Terry Pegula and a Toronto-based group headlined by Jon Bon Jovi. The Toronto group's initial bid was reportedly rejected

On Monday, it was reported that both Trump and Bon Jovi likely violated the Bills' non-disclosure agreement by publicly speaking about their bids.

Forbes places the value of the Bills at $870 million, but before the bidding process began they were reportedly expected to sell for $1.1 billion

Trump has said that his chances of winning are "very, very unlikely."
