The sale process of the Bills keeps rolling along, and Kelly's name has come up lately.
Tim Graham at The Buffalo News reported that the Bills have made their financial books available to potential bidders. Graham's report confirmed that Terry Pegula, Tom Golisano, the Jon Bon Jovi group and Donald Trump are believed to have been given access to the Bills' financials.
So where does Kelly fit into all that? Well, Graham also said in a separate report that Jeffrey Gundlach is looking into bidding on the team and that he has contacted Kelly about forming a group. Gundlach is a Western New York Native, and per Graham, he "expressed interest" in buying the Bills three years ago.
Gundlach is the CEO of DoubleLine Capital, which is an investment firm based in Los Angeles that manages $50 billion in assets. Graham said a DoubleLine spokesman wouldn't comment on Gundlach's interest in the Bills.
Pegula and his wife are also making moves that reflect their serious interest in buying the team. Again thanks to Graham, the Pegulas have hired Steve Greenberg to oversee their involvement in the process. Greenberg is the managing director of Allen & Company and has helped facilitate the sale of several MLB and NBA teams.
Already the owners of the Buffalo Sabres, the Pegulas would almost assuredly keep the Bills in Western New York if they buy the team. Graham said they have a "strong desire to have the Buffalo Bills remain a centerpiece" of the area, via a statement they released through the Sabres.
Considering the rate the process is going, the Bills could have new owners before next season is over.
