More Ownership Speculation As Draft Nears
More Ownership Speculation: More rumors and speculaton regarding the future ownership of the Buffalo Bills. The associated press reports that the team may have a new owner as early as July with a chance for league approval by October's owners meetings. This report comes on the heels of the ramped up efforts of Governor Cuomo's administration on coming up with plans for a new stadium. The new stadium working group is expected to take a year or more to come up with plans but Cuomo has retained a law firm with a "ringer" that could have possible new stadium sites in 90 days. Another report by AP says a potential owner as already looked at potential stadium sites. The Buffalo News reports that Russ Brandon was seen having dinner with former Sabres owner Tom Golisano on Thursday. Golisano has always said he would get involved in possibly buying the Bills if there was a chance they would leave Western New York.

New Potential Buyer: Another New York real estate billionare is showing interest in buying the Bills. The associated press reports that sources say Howard Milstein is very interested in buying the team would definitely keep them in Western New York. Milstein in the past tried to buy the Browns and the Redskins. Those failed bids may make it an uphill climb for Milstein to gain approval from the league owners. He previously owned the New York Islanders and is a close ally to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. He owns a 142-acre plot of land in downtown Niagara Falls that has been mentioned as a potential site for a new Bills stadium but reportedly won't be involved in his bid. He also would look to buy the team all on his own which the league prefers. WGRZ reports that the Jacobs family is still very much in the mix and that Jim Kelly is talking to a half of dozen groups before deciding which one he will join.

Going by the draft trade value chart we figure it would cost the Bills their 2nd round pick to move up five spots and they could get the Browns 5th round pick in return. 1st Round Mock Draft.
