Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - Jeremy Jacobs and the Jacobs family have been among the top of the names rumored to be interested in purchasing the Buffalo Bills ever since the passing of Ralph Wilson.
Today Jeremy Jacobs Jr. released a statement confirming that he has at least some interest in the team:
"We are using our resources, our contacts, and our relationships to do everything we can to ensure the Bills stay in Buffalo."
-- Jeremy Jacobs Jr., Principal, Delaware North Companies
Earlier this month, Delaware North Companies released a statement (below) regarding Jeremy Jacobs Sr's interest in the team. Jacobs Sr. would be prevented by the NFL bylaws from purchasing the Bills unless he sold the team he currently owns, the Boston Bruins.
"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."
