We don't do a lot of food reporting here, but when beloved Buffalo Bills invest in a new restaurant downtown with multiple connections to the team, it's worth sinking our teeth into. Former Bills Fred Jackson, Brian Moorman, and Terrence McGee are investing in a new steakhouse called SEAR located in the heart of Buffalo and they are talking up the community in which they all used to work.

"It's not so much investing in a steakhouse as it is investing in a community we believe in, that we have a lot of love for," said Moorman. "We were a big part of that community for a long time. We're excited about what the City of Buffalo is doing, how it's growing, and to be a part of that is very enticing."

Jackson echoed those comments and is the only one of the three that still calls Buffalo home.

"Buffalo's not just a place I plan on forgetting about," said Jackson. "It means more to me than just a place I played football. It's a place my family will always consider home."

Pegula Sports & Entertainment, a business holding of Bills owners Kim and Terry Pegula, is marketing the restaurant which is scheduled to open this fall. Maybe the Bills won't be taking all their free agents to Tempo anymore.
