Sunday was a typically news-filled day for football lovers, but the biggest story of the weekend for music fans may have taken place off the field. Reports are circulating that Jon Bon Jovi is looking to buy the Buffalo Bills.

According to CBS Sports, the team will go up for sale upon the death of 95-year-old Ralph Wilson, who founded the Bills in 1960. Bon Jovi has reportedly been schmoozing National Football League officials and other powerful people in the sports business to put himself in prime position to make the purchase. However, it is believed that the front-runner for the position is Canada’s Rogers Communication Group, since the team plays a game in Toronto every year.

Bon Jovi has some experience in owning a football team. In 2004, he became a co-owner of the Philly Soul in the Arena Football League. The Soul won the championship in 2008, after which the league suspended operations for one year. The team was revived, without Bon Jovi’s involvement, in 2011.

The Buffalo Bills currently sit in last place in the AFC East with a 4-7 record.
