At some point, the Buffalo Bills will be sold - in all likelihood, when Hall of Fame owner and team founder Ralph C. Wilson passes away. The Bills have been mentioned as a team that could relocate when that happens, as a new owner may not see growth potential for his shiny new NFL franchise in Western New York. Therefore, Bills fans have pinned their hopes on the likes of Jim Kelly and, more recently, Terry Pegula to keep the team in Buffalo.

Put Jeffrey Gundlach's name on that list, too.

"I’m trying to put a group together to buy (the Bills)," Gundlach told the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. "Now, I'm thinking about thinking about it."

A native of Buffalo, Gundlach is a "bond-fund manager" that is reportedly talking to wealthy clients, gauging interest in putting together a bid to buy the Bills and keep them in Buffalo - though he did admit that the team is unlikely to be sold while Wilson is alive, per the report.

"It's not an investment," Gundlach said of the idea. "It's because I love the Bills."
