Potential Bills suitor Rogers passes

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
The Buffalo Bills' ambiguous future became more uncertain Tuesday morning with the death of Ted Rogers, the Canadian billionaire and Toronto Blue Jays owner who made no secret of his desire to lure an NFL team to Toronto. He was 75.

Rogers paid the Bills $78 million to move eight games to his stadium, the Rogers Centre (formerly known as SkyDome) through 2012.

The first regular-season game in that series will be played Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

How Rogers' death will affect the prospects of a Bills move to Toronto is unknown, but one of his partners in the venture, Toronto Maple Leafs minority owner Larry Tanenbaum, and Rogers' heirs could maintain the cause.
