The Singer Throws His Name In The Hat for The Bills Franchise

Jerry Jones knows a thing or two about adding flash to a NFL franchise -- after all he owns the team that was dubbed "Americas Team" long before his purchase of the Cowboys brought him into the Football spotlight.

Jones knows another person who can handle the spotlight of being an NFL owner as well -- Jon Bon Jovi has placed his name in the running for a bid on the Buffalo Bills franchise.  After longtime owner Ralph Wilson, who helped found the American Football League in 1960, died at his home in March -- prospective buyers have opted to have their name thrown into the hat for a chance at ownership of the team.

"I don't know of anyone that I have any more respect for as a father, or as a husband, or certainly as a potential business partner," Jones told QMI Agency in a scrum with NFL writers in the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead Hotel, as the league's spring meeting opened as reported by the Toronto Sun.

"And so it's a credit to him that he's had the career that he's had, that he's qualified to become an NFL owner. As we know, you can't just wish for that. You have to be able to do something about that financially. So he's an outstanding candidate to be an owner in the NFL, and he's a great friend."

Bon Jovi does have some experience in the business as the owner of the Arena Football League's Philadelphia Soul. He is also no stranger around the NFL, and had some interest in the Atlanta Falcons in 2011.  Jones was asked about Bon Jovi's qualifications -- and mentioned that the star singer has been around the NFL and team owners for years prior to the Bills discussion.

"He knows many of the owners, personally. All owners know of him," Jones said. "But he knows them personally. He's committed, he's very genuine.

"You talk about individuals and talk about their qualification -- there hasn't been anybody more qualified to be involved in sports ownership, or certainly ownership in the NFL, than Jon Bon Jovi."

 

The Bills franchise is not yet on the market. The club has yet to announce which investment bank will run the sale. After that step, there are NFL-mandated protocols the Wilson trust must follow before hammering a for-sale sign into the lawn.

The team could be sold as early as this summer, a prominent sports-franchise consultant has told QMI Agency.
