In the past, the Buffalo Bills and Jerry Jones have never really seen eye to eye with almost anything and to a Bills fan, the name Jerry Jones makes you cringe. The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who have not always been so nice to Bills fans, is giving them a little bit of hope for the future.
Jones commented on the Buffalo Bills moving out of Buffalo in the future.
Jones does not think that the Buffalo Bills will be making a trip out west anytime soon. He says…
“The thing that Bills fans ought to know is there are a handful of other cities as well that look to Los Angeles and say, ‘Should the fact the NFL doesn’t have a team out there concern us?’” Jones recently told Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
“I think that’s an obvious thing to think about, but if I were a Bills fan I would feel good about the recent negotiation and remodeling of the stadium.”
With the new deal and remodeling the Buffalo Bills and Erie County came to agreement on this past year, the Buffalo Bills are here to stay for a while. The naming rights on the stadium are there for another 7 years.
Mike Florio, from profootballtalk.com, says that “unless the NFL expands, some team will be ripped from its current city and stadium and sent to L.A., if/when the NFL returns there. Currently, the list of potential teams to move is fairly short, and the Bills remain fairly close to the top”.
I have to agree with both of them. The Bills are on the short list and close to the top to move to a bigger market. They are here to stay for at least 7 more years, which is the good news. Better news would be to see the current owner, Ralph Wilson, sell the team to local personnel that do not have an intent on moving the team but building on the longevity that Ralph has created for the past 50+ years.
