NFL Rumors: Jim Kelly, Andre Reed and other former players want to buy Buffalo Bills

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Buffalo Bills and their future in New York and while the fans are trying to fight for the team to remain where it’s been since they were established in 1960, there seems to be a growing chance of the team moving to Toronto or Los Angeles — and possibly even London — in the near future.

But as is the case with all teams being threatened with relocation, former players are starting to come out and support the team staying where it is and for the Bills that means some pretty notable faces are coming around to do what they can to keep the Bills in Buffalo. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, former Bills players Andre Reed and Steve Christie are among a new group trying to buy the Bills and avoid relocation.

Just recently we also heard that former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is battling cancer and thankfully winning, is also interested in buying the team which may lead to a dream scenario for fans where the team is saved by the last great roster it had.

You can see the 30 for 30 documentary already that details the death of Ralph Wilson leading to the death of the Bills in Buffalo, but the story book ending would be a group of former players banding together to buy the team they played for and rescue it for the fans.

Let’s hope that happens, because the uncertainty fans feel about the future is becoming unbearable.
