The family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs could buy the Buffalo Bills. Or perhaps they’ll simply build a new place for the team to play.
According to the Associated Press, executives from Delaware North, the Buffalo hospitality company owned by Jeremy Jacobs, will meet with at least one potential ownership group to evaluate possible stadium sites.
Jacobs could still buy the team, although the league’s cross-ownership rules would require Kroenke-style reshuffling of assets to ensure that the same person doesn’t own the Bills and the Bruins. That complication doesn’t apply to Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula, who recently freed up $1.75 billion in cash that could be used to buy the Bills.
Regardless of whether Jacobs would buy the team, he could end up having a significant role in the ownership of the team’s next home in the Buffalo area.
