Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs “leads the list of potential suitors” for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills [1], according to a report in The Buffalo News that cites highly placed sources.

Jacobs, who hails from Buffalo, is prohibited by NFL rules from owning teams in different cities, but there is speculation that his six children could head the purchase. Jacobs’ son Charlie Jacobs is a principal and alternate governor of the Bruins.

Jeremy Jacobs, chairman and CEO of Buffalo-based concession company Delaware North, is worth a reported $3.1 billion.

The Bills are owned by Mary Wilson following the death of her husband, Ralph Wilson [2], on March 25. The club was valued at $870 million in Forbes magazine’s most recent annual story on teams’ worth.

The Buffalo News report also listed as possible buyers real estate mogul Donald Trump, Sabres owner Terry Pugula and former Sabres owner Tom Golisano.
