Jim Kelly has 'people in line' to buy Bills
Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly dropped a lot of information and anecdotes on Page 2 editor Thomas Neumann.
Kelly has been making the media rounds as a spokesman for the Depend campaign to end prostate cancer, to advocate enhanced prenatal screening through Hunter's Hope Foundation and discuss his wife's book, "Without a Word."
Kelly's interviews never are dry and always provide entertaining stories. In his interview with Neumann, Kelly explains why he chooses to live in Western New York (see? I'm not alone), how a Bills secretary caused him to sign with the USFL, Penn State's interest in him to play linebacker and his affinity for pro wrestling.
Neumann also asked Kelly about his intentions to be part of a group that might succeed Ralph Wilson as Bills owner:
"It's in limbo, because Mr. Wilson is still the owner of the Bills. He's still alive and kicking, thank God. He's a guy who's had that franchise for over 50 years, and he's had people come to him wanting to buy it and move it somewhere else. But he's been loyal to Western New York, and if that day comes when he decides, 'It's time for me to relinquish the ownership,' then I do have people in line that will want to purchase the team and keep it in Western New York because I do not entertain any offers from anybody looking to move the Buffalo Bills from Western New York. I just won't do it. I'll do whatever it takes to keep them in Buffalo."
