"Places like Buffalo represented the lifeblood of what would become the present-day NFL, blue-collar cities where fans bought jerseys and turned out to watch teams in the worst conditions.

"With the team presumably getting sold to the highest bidder after Ralph Wilson’s estate is settled, the Bills’ future in Buffalo will likely not extend past the 2022 expiration of the 10-year lease. If it makes it past the one-time, 2019, cheap-buyout exit for the next owner."
