Bon Jovi wants Bills to stay in Buffalo
CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Jon Bon Jovi says his prospective ownership group wants the Bills to succeed in Buffalo.
His letter in The Buffalo News on Sunday marks the first time the rocker has publicly discussed his plans regarding the Bills. The team is for sale after owner Ralph Wilson died in March.
Bon Jovi says his group is committed to working with state and local officials to identify a new stadium site in the region. He says it's his intention to "carry on Ralph Wilson's legacy" in Buffalo.
Bon Jovi adds that he wants to clarify his group's intentions in light of what he calls "conjecture." Elected officials and Bills fans are concerned Bon Jovi's group intends to buy and eventually move the team to Toronto.
