Upon the passing of the Buffalo Bills owner, Ralph Wilson Jr. there was a report that “rock” legend Jon Bon Jovi had interest in buying the Buffalo Bills. Well once again Bon Jovi has been linked to having extreme interest in buying the Bills.

“NFL honchos expect rocker Jon Bon Jovi to make a push to purchase the Bills, perhaps in concert with Maple Leafs magnate Larry Tanenbaum. Bon Jovi is connected with Tanenbaum and Tim Leiweke, CEO of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment Group. There were rumors about Bon Jovi wanting to purchase the team before Ralph Wilson’s death, but the team was not for sale then. It is now. There are expected to be other bidders as well, and a primary factor in who gets the team is going to be where the Bills will call home. If one of the ownership groups can get a stadium built in Buffalo, that group may have the edge. It is possible the Bon Jovi group may want to relocate to Toronto—or even Los Angeles. Lieweke previously was involved with the L.A. Kings and tried to bring an NFL team there before.” – Dan Pompei, Bleacher Report

As you can tell by the report above, Bon Jovi would be considered an owner who would potential try to relocate the Buffalo Bills. If he did make a push and purchased the Bills, it would be a few years until the team would be relocated but out of all the interested buyers, Bon Jovi is probably last on many fans list. Even though he may be able to put on a great halftime show, fans and analyst around the NFL world would hate to see the Bills leave western New York. For now it is just a report and if he does make the final round, it still would have to be approved by a majority of other league franchises.
