Buffalo Bills news, 5/4: Tom Golisano and Russ Brandon have dinner

USA TODAY Sports

Tom Golisano and Russ Brandon had dinner together. So that merits reporting.

Number Crunch: Run game value as healthy as ever - BuffaloBills.com

"The value of the running game is going to be different for each team - the New Orleans Saints only ran the ball 36.2% of the time in 2013, while the Seahawks rushed on over 52% of their offensive plays last season. But in general, the running game is just as healthy now as it was 10 or more years ago."

It's an interesting look by the Buffalo Bills official website, but the Bills have heavily invested in wide receivers and quarterback over the last two offseasons. This offseason, they added one offensive lineman and running back (so far), so maybe Nathaniel Hackett is fully intending to run C.J. Spiller until he throws up this year. Time will tell.

Ownership

Golisano and Brandon have dinner as intrigue over Bills ownership grows - City & Region - The Buffalo News
"And The News learned Saturday that Bills President Russ Brandon dined Thursday with billionaire B. Thomas Golisano, who has been mentioned as a possible buyer of the team. Also at that dinner at Sinatra’s was Larry Quinn, former managing partner of the Sabres when Golisano was the primary owner." Everyone that Russ Brandon has dinner with is a potential Bills owner!

Saving the Bills, but at what cost? - Opinion - MPNnow - Canandaigua, NY
"We’re not saying the Bills wouldn’t be missed, and we hope this is the year they end the NFL’s longest playoff drought, but we should give pause to any potential owner who thinks a new taxpayer-funded stadium is the only way he or she sees the team staying in Western New York. Regrettably, we should also brace for a time when Buffalo isn’t front of the word Bills."

"Good. He's excited. Likes Coach [Doug] Marrone," Bruce Matthews said. "It's funny because it's hard to even picture any scenario but the more you think about it, that would work."
