It was announced on Thursday that Mary Wilson, widow of the late Ralph Wilson, would be taking over as the the principal owner of the Buffalo Bills. However, according to a report from Buffalo News, that should only last until about the middle of this upcoming season, as the team is expected to be under new ownership by October.
The Buffalo Bills could have a new owner before the season is halfway over.
While much of the focus on the Bills’ future understandably has been on building a new stadium and the next owner being able to wriggle out of the lease in 2020, a high-ranking Bills source informed me the team’s sale is on a much faster track than fans probably expected.
The report did go on to state that this is a rather generous estimate, as it’s more likely that a vote could happen in December, or at the owner’s meeting next March, but October is still a possibility on the table for the sale of the franchise.
