BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula say they have a strong desire to see the Bills stay in Buffalo, and aren't ruling out making a bid to buy the franchise.
In saying they're following the Bills' sale process, the Pegulas declined to go into further detail of their intentions, in a statement released by the Sabres on Friday.
The statement was released a day after a person familiar with the sale process told The Associated Press the Pegulas were among prospective buyers who received a non-disclosure agreement and background on the Bills from a law firm representing late owner Ralph Wilson's estate.
Filling out the non-disclosure agreement is the next step in providing interested groups full access to the Bills' financial data in order to begin formulating bids.
