Jeremy Jacobs Has No Interest In Buying Buffalo Bills

With recent reports circulating that Boston Bruins owner, and Buffalo native, Jeremy Jacobs could be interested in owning the Buffalo Bills when the team is officially put up for sale, Delaware North Companies, a company owned by Jacobs that is headquartered in Buffalo, has released a statement regarding the reports.

The company has stated that Jacobs has no interest in owning the NFL team.

From WIVB-Buffalo:

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.

This statement comes less than a day after more reports surfaced about Jon Bon Jovi being a part of a Toronto group expected to bid on the Bills.
