Jon Bon Jovi Won’t Move Bills If He Buys Team Says Jaworski

Jon Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi is apparently serious about making a bid for ownership of the Bills, but when he joined a group from Toronto that will vie for the franchise, the whispers were that he’d help move the team to Canada (which ignited some creative protests in Buffalo).

Charles Curtis of the Newark Star Ledger reports that’s not the case, says ex-Eagles quarterback and ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski — the Toronto Sun’s John Kryk reported Jaworski told a radio station that “the rocker has no plans to relocate the Bills from Buffalo, should he wind up buying the team, but that he never has.”

Kryk, who wrote a story earlier this year that said Bon Jovi’s group wanted to move the Bills to Toronto, stood by his report.

“Jaworski’s comments carry weight. He and Bon Jovi from 2004-08 were among the original owners of the Arena Football League’s franchise in Philadelphia, the Soul,” Kryk noted. “So who better than a respected former NFLer originally from the Buffalo area to begin dispersing the message that Bon Jovi and his Toronto group actually intend to keep the team right where it is?”

People Who Want To Buy The Bills Contacted

A person familiar with the Bills’ sale process has told John Wawrow of the Associated Press a law firm representing late owner Ralph Wilson’s estate has started contacting prospective ownership groups.

The person said Thursday that prospective owners began receiving a seven-page non-disclosure agreement, and a brief outline of background material on the Bills franchise. The documents were distributed by Proskauer Rose, the legal firm overseeing the sale.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sale process has not been made public.

The next step is for prospective owners to sign the non-disclosure agreement, the person said. That would then provide groups full access to the Bills’ financial data in order to begin formulating bids.

Bills Come To Terms With Second-Round Pick Cyrus Kouandjio

The Bills have signed second-round offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio to a four-year contract, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Kouandjio was selected 44th overall.

He was projected as a first-round draft pick at one time before questions about his knees dropped his draft stock.

Kouandjio played in 35 career games at Alabama and started each of his final 27 games played. The 6-foot-7, 322-pounder All-Southeastern Conference first-team selection last season.

Bills Trade With Cleveland; Take WR Sammy Watkins With 4th Pick In NFL Draft

The aggressive Bills moved up in a move with the Browns, and took WR Sammy Watkins with the 3rd pick in the NFL Draft.

In return for the fourth pick, the Browns received Buffalo’s No. 9 pick in addition to a first- and fourth-round pick in 2015.

Previewing The 2014 Buffalo Bills Schedule Release

1_ralph-wilson

The Buffalo Bills will enter year two of the E.J. Manuel experiment in 2014, and just how much progress their young quarterback can make might be the difference between making the playoffs or not. The Bills have otherwise put together a stout defense and a rushing attack that should be productive, having them inch closer to a long awaited return to post-season play.

The trip back to the playoffs could be hard, though, as the Buffalo Bills schedule for 2014 is anything but easy. It’s specifically tough on the road, where they have to take on a likely rebounding Houston Texans team, the explosive Denver Broncos, as well as dates with the Raiders, Bears and Lions. With Oakland being their only non-division game that is a win on paper, Buffalo could be truly tested on the road.

At home, the Bills shouldn’t have too tough of a time with the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings, but may have their work cut out for them when the Chiefs, Chargers and Packers come to town. With a pretty tough schedule on the docket for 2014, Buffalo will surely need running back C.J. Spiller to rebound from a so-so 2013 campaign.

Bills Great Andre Reed – Donald Trump Could Save The Bills

From: TMZ

Donald Trump could put the Buffalo Bills BACK ON THE MAP — so says Bills legend Andre Reed who tells TMZ Sports he FULLY SUPPORTS Donald becoming an owner of the team.

Earlier this week, Trump claimed he’d been approached about buying a stake in the squad — and said he would “take a look at it.”

Now, Reed says his fingers are crossed that Trump actually pulls the trigger because, “I think he would uplift the whole city.”

“I like the idea of Trump taking over,” Reed says … “He’d bring change.”

“The Bills are in such disarray, that bringing in The Donald would give fans hope that the team would stay in Buffalo.”

Reed says he understands owning an NFL team is incredibly challenging, but says “I think he’d be able to deal with it. His track record speaks for itself.”

Andre — who’s set to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame later this year — says he’d rally other Bills greats like Bruce Smith and Thurman Thomas to get behind Trump and help in any way they can.

One final quote — “We’re talkin’ about Donald Trump, not Donald Punk!”

Bills Sign Two; Brandon Spikes and Anthony Dixon Agree to Terms

The Buffalo Bills have been one of the more quiet teams as the free agency frenzy slowly begins to die down. However, the Bills decided to take a chance to improve the team by signing two players late Friday night headed into Saturday. The Bills have come to terms with former Patriots’ linebacker Brandon Spikes, who put on Twitter just days ago that he will no longer be staying with the Patriots, and running back Anthony Dixon, who recently played for the 49ers.

The 26-year-old Spikes comes to Buffalo as an established linebacker. Spikes has recorded a career total of 286 tackles, two interceptions, and five forced fumbles in four years. Spikes played in every game in 2013 but started 11 times. Spikes will now be joining new defensive coordinator, Jim Schwartz.

Dixon has much less playing experience than Spikes. However, in Dixon’s four year career, he has never fumbled the football and has scored eight rushing touchdowns. Dixon has ran for a total of 458 yards with an average of 3.1 yards a carry.
