Now it seems billionaire Donald Trump could be making a serious effort to buy the team.

According to ESPN.com, Trump told The Buffalo News he is committed to buying the team and keeping them in Buffalo.

“I’m going to give it a heavy shot,” Trump told the Buffalo newspaper on Monday. “I would love to do it, and if I can do it, I’m keeping it in Buffalo.”

Multiple sources have confirmed that Trump has had multiple conversations with Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon.

Trump confirmed earlier this month that he was contacted by a group who wanted to buy the Bills franchise after the death of Ralph Wilson.

He also said he wanted to ease the minds of Bills fans who are concerned that the team’s next owner will move the team to Toronto or Los Angeles.

“I live in New York and it’s easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place,” Trump said. “Where am I going to move it, some place on the other side of the country, where I have to travel for five hours?”

The Bills confirmed the franchise would eventually be sold, saying that “a process will be established at an appropriate time” for the sale.

Trump was previously associated with professional football when he bought the New Jersey Generals of the now defunct USFL in 1983.
