BUFFALO, N. cheap nfl jerseys .Y. -- Add New York City developer Howard Milstein to a growing list of candidates interested in purchasing the Buffalo Bills. Two people familiar with discussions confirmed Milsteins interest as a prospective owner and keeping the franchise in western New York. The people spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the condition of anonymity because Milstein hasnt publicly revealed his intentions. Citing an unnamed person, Buffalos WGRZ-TV first named Milstein as an ownership candidate earlier in the day. The Bills, last valued at $870 million, will be put on the market following the death of owner Ralph Wilson in March. The sale process wont begin until Wilsons estate hires an investment banking firm to put an updated value on the franchise and oversee negotiations. New York City developer Donald Trump and Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly have already expressed interest in buying the team. The family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs hasnt ruled out becoming involved in an ownership group. And New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi has been linked to -- but has no formal ties -- with Toronto-based developer Larry Tanenbaum, who is interested in purchasing an NFL franchise and moving it to Toronto. Milstein has previous sports ownership ties to the NHLs New York Islanders and made a failed bid to purchase the NFLs Washington Redskins. He also has connections to the Buffalo region and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He currently serves as chairman of the New York State Thruway Authority. And Milstein controls an undeveloped 142-acre plot of land in downtown Niagara Falls that has been mentioned as a potential site for a new Bills stadium. Milstein would face obstacles in purchasing the Bills because of a spotty history in previous ownership bids. Milstein, his brother and Edward Milstein and Steven Gluckstern co-owned the Islanders from 1998-2000 before selling the team to Charles Wang. The Milstein/Gluckstern ownership tenure was filled with controversy over the conditions of the Islanders home, Nassau Coliseum. And the owners alienated the fan base by threatening to move the Islanders and openly discussing having the team play some home games in other arenas. In 1999, Milstein withdrew a bid to purchase the Redskins after failing to get support from a majority of NFL owners. Some owners said he was using too much borrowed money to finance the deal, while others worried that he would be a maverick owner because of his contentious stewardship of the Islanders. The Redskins were eventually sold to Milsteins junior partner Dan Snyder. Milstein filed and lost a $20 million arbitration grievance accusing Snyder of breaching their joint ownership agreement. Wilsons widow, Mary Wilson, has taken over as the Bills controlling owner until the franchise is sold. There is no shortage of other potential candidates. Erie County deputy executive Richard Tobe has said hes been approached by as many as 10 groups interested in the Bills. The Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the 2019 season because of a strict non-relocation clause included in a 10-year lease agreement reached with the state and county in December 2012. The Bills would incur a $400 million penalty by even broaching the prospect of moving during the leases term. There is a one-time exception that would allow the Bills to break the lease for just under $28.4 million in 2020. "They cant even plan to break this lease without being in breach," said Tobe, who represented the county in negotiations. Tobe added the lease essentially prevents the Bills estate from selling the team to any group considering relocating the team before 2023. cheap jerseys .
