When the Buffalo Bills are sold in a move that could happen very soon, it will ultimately come down to four people named in his trust. That according to a report from AllSportsWNY.com's Bob Koshinski. Koskinski is former sports director at WKBW in Buffalo, worked for the Empire Sports Network for 14 years, and is now vice president and general manager of WBBZ in Buffalo.
Koskinski's sources say that three of the four members of the trust will need to vote to sell to a new owner. Those four people include Mr. Wilson's widow, Mary, and his niece Mary Owen, who is the Bills' Executive Vice President of Strategic Planning and his proxy at many league-wide events in recent years. The other two members are Jeff Littman, treasurer of the Wilson Fund and the Bills' Chief Financial Officer, and Wilson's personal attorney, Eugene Driker. Perhaps surprisingly, team president and Wilson confidante Russ Brandon is not a member of the trust.
No matter the trust's decision, the new owner will still also need 24 of the 32 NFL owners to approve the sale.
In a separate article, Koskinski also mentions a new former Bills player as a possible "face" for an ownership group in special teams ace and CBS football reporter Steve Tasker. He joins a list already including Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas.
