Donald Trump apparently wants in on the NFL.

The billionaire entrepreneur told the Buffalo News that he intends to make a run at purchasing the Buffalo Bills. The News reports that Trump already has spoken to Bills president and CEO Russ Brandon twice.

"I’m going to give it a heavy shot," Trump said. "I would love to do it, and if I can do it, I’m keeping it in Buffalo."

Trump, who owned the USFL’€™s New Jersey Generals, denied any animosity still exists from the league’€™s $1.7 billion antitrust lawsuit against the NFL in 1984.

Musician Jon Bon Jovi and his financial backers from Toronto reportedly have shown interest in purchasing the team.
