BUFFALO, NY - The answer to who will purchase the Buffalo Bills is still a mystery, but there are reports that Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs may be interested.
However, a report form WBZ in Boston Thursday quotes Bruins President Cam Neely as saying Jeremy Jacobs wouldn't be interested in buying the Bills if it meant selling the Boston Bruins.
Sources tell 2 On Your Side's Adam Benigni that it's possible Jacobs would not have to sell the Bruins, that his sons could lead the Bills' ownership effort instead.
Multiple sources tell Benigni that Jacobs remains a potential buyer for the Bills and that the NFL would likely have a larger problem with the fact that their company, Delaware North, owns properties in the gaming industry.
Delaware North issued this statement Friday afternoon:
"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."
The Bills are expected to have a new owner within a year.
