Report: Trump intends to make run at purchasing Bills
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.
