  • Text size: + -

BUFFALO, N.Y. — New York City developer Howard Milstein, who previously expressed interest in buying the Buffalo Bills, says he is no longer interested in purchasing the team.

In a statement released Monday, Milstein said he does want to make sure they stay in Western New York.

Statement from Howard Milstein

"We are prepared to put substantial personal and business resources behind that effort, including our land in Niagara Falls, but this does not include participating in the sales process or making a bid to purchase the team," said Milstein.

“Through my work with the New York State Thruway Authority, I have come to even more fully appreciate and respect the role the team plays in the Western New York community and understand the critical importance of keeping the Bills in Western New York. I love football. I have always loved football and can't imagine our community losing this great team.

I look forward to working with all parties and any prospective buyers to help keep the Bills in upstate New York where they belong."
