Through all the twists and turns of the sale of the Bills, with all the potential celebrity possibilities, it appears the high bid so far has come from a local.
Via the Buffalo News, Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula turned in the highest of the three bids so far for the team.
According to a report by Forbes, the three non-binding bids all came in under $900 million.
The report said Pegula’s bid of $890 million topped the $820 million bid by the Toronto group faced by Jon Bon Jovi and the $809 million from Donald Trump. (What happened to $1 billion, all cash?)
Those numbers aren’t final, and the Forbes report suggested they’re so low that the league might want to scuttle the sale process and start over. But it does point to what has been reported previously, that Pegula was the front-runner to buy the team.
