BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The son of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs Sr. has told The Buffalo News his family has had discussions involving the Buffalo Bills, but adds it's premature to say whether it will make an attempt to buy the team.
In a story posted on the newspaper's website Wednesday night, Jeremy Jacobs Jr. says his family is using its resources and contacts to ensure the Bills stay in Buffalo. He says the family has been in contact with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Jacobs' comments were the first made by any family member expressing interest in the team. Bills owner Ralph Wilson died last month.
The Jacobs are from Buffalo and own Delaware North food service company, which has its headquarters in the city.
