Three people who have reviewed documents concerning the sale of the Buffalo Bills say a Toronto group that includes rocker Jon Bon Jovi is interested in buying the team.
The three people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the process is private and the Toronto group has not revealed its intentions.
The group includes Larry Tanenbaum and the Rogers family. Tanenbaum is chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which controls the NHL's Maple Leafs and NBA's Raptors. The Rogers family controls Toronto-based communications giant Rogers Communication.
The group has retained the banking firm Goldman Sachs to assist its bid.
The Bills are for sale after owner Ralph Wilson died in March.
