CJ Spiller had a less-than spectacular year last season for the Buffalo Bills, but hopes he can return to his explosive form this upcoming season.

Spiller, hindered by injuries, failed to hit the 1,00 yard mark last season, after posting 1,244 yards on the ground the year before. This season, Spiller hopes to return to his 2012 season form, and Marc Sessler of NFL.com says he expects to see Spiller become the explosive back Bills fans have come to appreciate.

"Spiller is running and cutting on the ankle that bothered him all last season and told the team’s official site last month, 'I definitely feel that explosion coming back to how I was in 2012.' One former scout suggested the X-factor was never healthy during a campaign that saw Spiller fall from 6.0 yards per carry in 2012 to 4.3 one season ago. Spiller’s 456 yards after contact in 2013 were a shadow of the 742 he dialed up the year before, but that didn’t stop Chip Kelly and the Eagles from wanting him in a trade. Buffalo wasn’t about to part ways with their most explosive weapon," Sessler wrote in his column.

When the news broke that Donald Trump was interested in buying the Buffalo Bills, many laughed it off, citing his involvement in the casino business, among other reasons he isn't serious.

Today, Trump insisted that he's serious about obtaining the team. He also said, should he land the Bills, they would be staying put.

"I'm going to give it a heavy shot," Trump told Tim Graham of the Buffalo News. "I would love to do it, and if I can do it I'm keeping it in Buffalo. I live in New York, and it's easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place," Trump said. "Where am I going to move it, some place on the other side of the country, where I have to travel for five hours?"

Trump's interest in the Bills has been magnified now that he's gone on the record stating he absolutely wants to buy the Bills. He even said he would be willing to sell his shares of his casinos, which are only small shares at this point anyway.

Buffalo native, and Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane took a crack at predicting the team's schedule, and also says he hopes to catch the Bills when they play the Chicago Bears.

Kane has the Bills starting in New York against the Jets, and opening at home in week two against the New England Patriots. He gives Buffalo two weeks to prepare for Peyton Manning and the Broncos, and also hopes to see the Bills play Chicago on Thanksgiving, a game in which he hopes to attend.

"I put the Bears what I hope is around Thanksgiving. That’d be awesome if they could play in Chicago on Thanksgiving," Kane told Buffalobills.com. "Hopefully when they’re in Chicago we’ll be here during that time otherwise it’s tough to get to games because we are in-season too."

Kane says he gave Buffalo an easier go in the last few weeks of the season, with them traveling to Houston and Miami, before returning home against the Jets for the season-finale. He says he hopes the final portion of the season will allow them to make a playoff push, something the Bills have failed to do since 1999.

Bon Jovi, who has been looking to purchase an NFL team for a few years, is said to be the face of a Toronto-based group looking to move a franchise to Toronto.

"Jon remains passionate in his pursuit of an NFL franchise," Bon Jovi publicist Ken Sunshine said.

Bon Jovi isn't the only publicly recognizable person with interest in the Bills. 

Donald Trump has been reported to be a possible investor in the Bills with a group looking to keep the team in Buffalo

If the Toronto-based group were to purchase the Bills, the chances of them moving the team before 2020 seem grim with an iron-clad lease agreement in place with steep penalties, however the investment group is said to have very deep pockets.

The process of the impending sale have not been made public, but the family of Ralph Wilson has said in a statement that the process will be established in the near future. 

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said previously that the league's primary interest is to keep the team in Buffalo
