Bills staying put in Buffalo…for now

Will the Bills stay in Buffalo? The short answer is maybe.

While owner Terry Pegula doesn’t seem eager to make a long-term commitment, at least not public, but in the short-term it doesn’t seem like a disruption is imminent.

“Well, we have a lease through 2023, so that’s a contractual obligation,” Pegula said, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “That’s my stance on it. This is 2017, so we’ve got a long ways to go before we start worrying about anything besides where we’re at now.”

Since the end of the 2015 season, the Rams and Chargers have both moved to Los Angeles. The Raiders, meanwhile, have announced plans to move to Las Vegas.

Given that the Bills play in one of the NFL’s smallest markets and oldest stadiums, it’s only fair for their fans to wonder if they’re next.

The good news is there is still time. A move would likely start being planned out with a few years left on the lease.

So realistically, Buffalo’s ownership and its city has about 3-4 years to work out a deal before moving becomes an imminent threat.
