A new name has been thrown into the ring as a potential bidder for the Buffalo Bills.
Pabst Brewing Company's owner C. Dean Metropoulos has been linked as a potential bidder for the franchise, coming just a couple of years after losing out on a bidding war for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Metropoulos is worth an estimated $1.3 billion, which comes up a little short in comparison to other bidders. It is still not clear if he is a part of a group or not.
While attempting to purchase the Jaguars, Metropoulos was reported to be looking at moving the franchise to Los Angeles. While it was never confirmed, the potential owner never disputed the claim.
So far no formal announcement has been made from Metropoulos, a spokesman did issue a statement.
"The Metropoulos family has a continued interest in acquiring an NFL franchise and expects to review any such opportunity," a Metropoulos spokesman said.
The bidding process for the Bills can begin once the franchise's value has been evaluated.
