As long as the Buffalo Bills' trust has more face-to-face meetings scheduled than known bidders, we'll keep digging to discover who else signed those nondisclosure agreements.
The Buffalo News has learned the identity of someone else who has expressed interest in buying the team. Oakland Raiders minority stakeholder David Abrams was among the 20 or so parties to sign and return the nondisclosure agreement.
Abrams led a group that seven years ago bought 20 percent of the Raiders from founder Al Davis for $150 million.
Abrams might not be in pursuit of the Bills anymore. Multiple calls to his investment firm, Abrams Capital in Boston, weren't returned. The Raiders declined to comment.
But anybody interested in meeting with the trust must have signed the nondisclosure agreement.
Meetings began last week in Detroit with billionaire developer Donald Trump on Wednesday. Bond manager Jeffrey Gundlach and legendary quarterback Jim Kelly were there Thursday.
Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula and his wife, Kim, are scheduled to hear the trust's presentation this week in Manhattan. The group led by rock star Jon Bon Jovi reportedly was to meet with the trust this week, too.
Bon Jovi's private plane was in Detroit on Sunday and departed Monday night.
Ralph Wilson Enterprises is located in suburban Grosse Point Farms, Mich.
