Bond investor may be interested in buying Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – A prominent bond investor originally from Western New York has reportedly approached Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly about forming a group to buy the Buffalo Bills.

The Buffalo News reports Jeffrey Gundlach, an Amherst High School graduate who heads DoubleLine Capital, an investment firm with $50 billion in assets, has approached Kelly about forming a group to buy the team.

So far, billionaire Tom Golisano and real estate mogul Donald Trump are the only ones to publicly declare their interest in the team.

It has been widely speculated that Terry Pegula, owner of the Buffalo Sabres, is interested in making a bid for the Bills. The Pegulas have hired a high-profile investment banker that is regularly involved in sales of sports teams. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
