Jon Bon Jovi will be the face of a group of investors that would like to purchase the Buffalo Bills franchise according to the Toronto Sun. This group would like to bring the team over to Toronto, Canada unlike Donald Trump, who said that he would like to keep the team in Buffalo.
Bon Jovi has been looking to get into the NFL for some time:
“Jon remains passionate in his pursuit of an NFL franchise,” Bon Jovi publicist Ken Sunshine told the Sun in an e-mail Thursday. – Toronto Sun
The group of investors that is with Bon Jovi may want to purchase the team and bring them to Toronto, but they would have to wait some time before they could make that happen. Late owner Ralph Wilson Jr. signed a lease that will keep the team in Buffalo until 2020. That is at least a solid 6 more years.
The process is still early in finding a group to purchase the team and we have heard of a few names that have interest, but we will see who gets filtered out along the process.
