Jon Bon Jovi Eyes NFL Team Buffalo Bills To Purchase

American rock star Jon Bon Jovi is reportedly close to buying a top NFL team.

The 51 year-old is interesting in purchasing the Buffalo Bills when they are put on the market.

CBS Sport reports, several sources have said that Jon is very interested in buying the Football franchise as soon as their current owner, Ralph Wilson, passes away.

He has spent a lot of time in the area recently, getting to know politicians and power brokers as well as adding an additional date to the city for one of his recent tours.

Bon Jovi's frontman has a great desire to own an NFL team and has been seeking guidance and help from several current NFL owners, to attempt to pick their brains at football related issues.

In 2004 the 'Living On A Prayer' singer founded and became the primary owner of the Philadelphia Soul, a football team who participated in the Arena Football League.

In 2001 he attempted to buy 15% of NFL's Atlanta Falcons for $150 million, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

At this time Jon released a statement that said, "Since helping to establish the Philadelphia Soul Arena Football team-from its inception through our 2008 championship season-I have always made clear my desire to someday enter the NFL."

It isn't like the 'Its My Life' singer will struggle to purchase a franchise that will most likely be very expensive, Bon Jovi is in 3rd place on Forbes Magazine's list of world's highest-paid musicians, with $79 million dollars.
