updated 12:54 PM , June 23, 2015
Donald Trump isn't likely to win the bid to become the next owner of the Buffalo Bills.
So says The Donald himself.
"I would say the chances are very, very unlikely," he said on Fox News Monday night in an interview with Greta Van Susteren. "Because I'm not going to do something totally stupid -- maybe just a little bit stupid, but not totally stupid."
Late in the wide-ranging interview she inquired about the possibility of him becoming an NFL owner.
Bids are due at 5 p.m. today for prospective owners of the Bills, and Trump says he'll be one of those bidding.
Trump's comments about the Bills, in their entirety:
"Well I'm looking at a team and we'll see what happens. I don't know. I'm also somebody that likes to buy for the right price , and right now you see pricing of certain types of assets -- including real estate assets -- they're going through the roof. I like buying things. So we'll see what happens. I'll put a bid in and we'll see.
"The team is Buffalo, as you know, and we'll see what happens. Everyone knows I'll be doing that. I'll be bidding. But many other people will be bidding.
"And, I would say the chances are very, very unlikely, because I'm not going to do something totally stupid -- maybe just a little bit stupid, but not totally stupid."
Later in the interview he added:
"The NFL has done a terrific job and it's exciting ... and terrific people, I know many of the owners, they're really terrific people. Look, it's going to be one of many bids. There will be many bids and we'll see what happens."
