The Buffalo Bills franchise is set for a very interesting future with the possibility of relocation to Canada, and rock star Jon Bon Jovi may be about to help this potential plan come to fruition.
Former owner Ralph Wilson passed away last month, and it's understood that as a result of his passing his family are wiling to sell the Bills to would be suitors.
Rumors of Bon Jovi's interest go back all the way to November, when the team was not classed as up for sale.
However, with the circumstances around the Bills ownership changing dramatically, it's understood that Bon Jovi will rekindle his interest.
According to Dan Pompei of The Bleacher Report, "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 & Entertainment."
A change of ownership for the Bills could mean a change for the franchise as a whole, with a rumored relocation from Buffalo becoming an even more likely possibility.
The destination for the Bills would most likely be Toronto, with the club having ties with the city for sometime.
The AFC East side have played regular games in the city in recent years as part of the NFL Toronto game series, and soon they could be there permanently.
"If one of the ownership groups can get a stadium built in Buffalo, they 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."
