Donald Trump said Tuesday he has been contacted by a group looking to purchase the Buffalo Bills.
"People have actually talked to me about the Bills," the New York City businessman and billionaire told WBEN radio in Buffalo, N.Y. "I mean, the group of people called me -- would I be interested in investing, and I'll take a look at it. I mean, I look at a lot of things. I'll take a look at it."
Since the death of owner Ralph Wilson last week, speculation around the Bills' future in Buffalo has increased.
Trump said that if he gets involved, he will keep the Bills in Buffalo.
"I know so many people in Buffalo and they have asked me about look at that and I certainly would look at it but I would ... if it were me I'd keep the team in Buffalo," he said. "I think it's something that is really vital to the area. ... It would be catastrophic, in my opinion, if Buffalo lost the Buffalo Bills."
Trump also spoke with WBEN about former Bills great Jim Kelly, who is undergoing treatment for cancer in New York City.
"He called me and actually his family is staying at one of my apartments in New York as he's going through a very rough time," Trump said. "He's a great guy and he sounded actually really good two days ago. He called me from the hospital.
