BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A deal extending the Buffalo Bills' series of games played in Toronto will be completed in the near future, Rogers Communications vice chairman Phil Lind said.
Without providing a timeline, Lind said, "It'll be soon," when asked about the progress of negotiations.
The Bills and Toronto-based Rogers already have NFL approval to extend the series once it expires after this season. Bills CEO Russ Brandon said last week the two sides are expected to meet in early October.
The extension is expected to be similar to the previous one, lasting five years and having Buffalo playing one annual regular-season game in Toronto, Canada's largest city.
Lind was in Buffalo on Friday attending a news conference announcing the Rogers-owned Toronto Blue Jays' new Triple-A affiliation agreement with the Buffalo Bisons.
