BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Delaware North Companies released a statement Friday afternoon to say owner Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Jacobs is not interested in buying the Buffalo Bills. Jacobs has been among the names mentioned during speculation over potential owners.
Statement from Delaware North Companies:
“Several reports have listed Jeremy Jacobs as potentially interested in buying the Buffalo Bills. Mr Jacobs owns the Boston Bruins and has no intention of selling the Bruins in order to purchase the Buffalo Bills. His focus is on ensuring the Boston Bruins continue to be a successful and winning franchise for the City of Boston and New England. He is a strong supporter of the Buffalo Bills as a storied franchise that has seen great success under Ralph Wilson. Mr. Jacobs would certainly be a strong supporter of any effort to keep the Bills in Western New York and is a big fan of the franchise and its leadership.”
A tweet from ESPN’s Sportcenter is claiming Jon Bon Jovi is part of a Toronto group expected to bid for ownership of the Bills, citing media reports. The tweet says Bon Jovi is worth an estimated $300 million.
