According to a published report, a new lease deal for the Buffalo Bills is imminent but Bills CEO Russ Brandon told WGR that isn't the case.
According to a story in the Niagara Falls Reporter, New York State, Erie County and the Bills have reached agreement on a deal that will be in the 8-10 year range and it could be announced in 7 to 10 days.
During his weekly segment on WGR, Brandon said "there is nothing imminent at all" but they are having very productive talks. Brandon added they are making progress but declined to give any timetable for an agreement.
