BUFFALO, NY- There's a new name in the search for the next owner of the Buffalo Bills.

A spokesperson for C. Dean Metropoulos, owner of the Pabst Brewing Co., which makes Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer, will consider purchasing the Bills, as first reported by the Buffalo News.

"The Metropoulos family has a continued interest in acquiring an NFL franchise and expects to review any such opportunity," a Metropoulos spokesman told 2 On Your Side.

Metropoulos, who also recently was involved in efforts to buy Twinkie maker Hostess out of bankruptcy, attempted to purchase the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011. Ultimately, the Jaguars were sold to Shahid Khan.

Forbes values Metropoulos's worth at $1.3 billion.
