AP source: Golisano submits bid to buy Bills

By From page B8 | August 08, 2014

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Former Buffalo Sabres owner Tom Golisano has entered the running to purchase the Buffalo Bills.

A person familiar with the sale process confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday that Golisano submitted a non-binding bid to the banking firm overseeing the sale. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sale is private.

The Buffalo News first reported Golisano’s entry earlier in the day.

In the meantime, Bills officials have begun meeting with prospective ownership groups that have already submitted bids.

Two other people familiar with the process said real estate mogul Donald Trump received extensive financial details on the franchise while attending a lengthy presentation on Wednesday. Sabres owner Terry Pegula and a Toronto-based group fronted by rocker Jon Bon Jovi are also scheduled to attend presentations.
