Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson passed away last week, and the team’s future has been the subject of much discussion since then. It looks like a new owner could be emerging in New York City mogul Donald Trump.

“People have actually talked to me about the Bills,” Trump told WBEN radio in Buffalo, N.Y., via Mike Rodak of ESPN. “I mean, the group of people called me — would I be interested in investing, and I’ll take a look at it. I mean, I look at a lot of things. I’ll take a look at it.”

Trump went on to say that he’d prefer to see the Bills stay in Western New York, so he has to be commended for that.

“I know so many people in Buffalo and they have asked me about look at that and I certainly would look at it but I would … if it were me I’d keep the team in Buffalo,” he said. “I think it’s something that is really vital to the area. … It would be catastrophic, in my opinion, if Buffalo lost the Buffalo Bills.”
