Rep tells AP that rocker Bon Jovi is not pursuing Bills purchase

By Jay Skurski

A representative for Jon Bon Jovi today told the Associated Press that the singer would one day like to be an NFL owner, but that "it's preposterous to say he's had any discussions with the Bills and Erie County."

Los Angeles-based public relations consultant Ken Sunshine spoke with AP sports reporter John Wawrow, largely shooting down Sunday's report from CBS Sports that Bon Jovi is "among the parties positioning to purchase the Buffalo Bills when the team comes up for sale."

"The Bills are not for sale, and he has too much respect for Mr. Wilson to engage in any discussions of buying the team," Sunshine told Wawrow, referring to team owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr.

When reached via email by The Buffalo News early this afternoon, Sunshine declined further comment: "Sorry -- not doing anything further on this story."
