Howard Milstein pulls out of Buffalo Bills ownership run, per report

USA TODAY Sports

A well-financed potential buyer of the team, who was planning to keep them local, has pulled out of bidding on the Buffalo Bills.

Howard Milstein, long speculated to be a leading contender to buy the Buffalo Bills, has pulled his name from consideration, according to a report from Tim Graham of The Buffalo News.

Milstein owns pieces of land suitable for a new stadium in Niagara Falls and has previously bid unsuccessfully for the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins in addition to owning the New York Islanders from 1997-1999. He joins a long list of people with Western New York ties that say they will do what they can to keep the team in Buffalo without buying the team, though it remains unclear what any of that would involve.

Donald Trump continues to be the only person publicly identifying himself as a possible future owner, while Jim Kelly's family has said the Hall of Famer would like to be part of a new group. Other potential names, like rock star Jon Bon Jovi and the Jacobs family, have not publicly declared their intent to bid on the team, but reports have them involved.
