PITTSFORD, N. Justin Williams Jersey .Y. - The sale of the Buffalo Bills is entering its final stage with prospective buyers asked to submit their formal bids in about two weeks, a person familiar with the sale process told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "Its coming down the backstretch," the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the sale is being conducted privately. The timetable was pushed back about a week because Morgan Stanley, the banking firm overseeing the sale on behalf of late owner Ralph Wilsons estate, extended a deadline last month in an attempt to increase the number of prospective bidders. A new owner is still expected to be identified by October, but its not certain whether it will be in time to be approved by NFL owners at league meetings in early October. And that approval would come only after the prospective candidates background and finances are vetted and approved by the leagues finance committee. The Bills are for sale after Wilson died in March. Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula are considered the front-runners among a small group of candidates who have already met with members of Wilsons estate over the past two weeks. Pegula was last valued by Forbes to have a net worth of $3.3 billion, and that was before he sold 75,000 acres worth of drilling rights for $1.75 billion two weeks ago. He also has the backing of a majority of Buffalo public and business leaders because he is committed to keeping the Bills in western New York. New York City real estate developer Donald Trump is also a contender, and met with Wilsons estate two weeks ago. Questions remain regarding the status of several other prospective ownership groups. Former Sabres owner Tom Golisano submitted a non-binding bid after Morgan Stanley extended its deadline. But Golisano has not yet met with Wilsons estate, two people familiar with the process told The AP. The meeting is regarded as important for prospective buyers to begin formulating their bids. The daylong meeting includes a lengthy presentation and access to hundreds of pages of documents outlining the Bills financial information. A Toronto-based group led by rocker Jon Bon Jovi has met with Wilsons estate, but has encountered several setbacks over questions regarding its intentions of keeping the Bills in Buffalo. Two people familiar with discussions confirmed to The AP that a group headed by Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly turned down Bon Jovis request to join forces last week. The Buffalo News first reported that development last weekend. Under their lease that runs through the 2022 season, the Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the 2019 season. There is a one-time exception that would allow them to break the agreement for just under $28.4 million in 2020. A letter Bon Jovi had published in the newspaper two weeks ago was also received with skepticism by Bills fans and officials. He didnt state in the seven-paragraph letter that he was committed to keeping the franchise in Buffalo. The only commitment Bon Jovi provided was working with state and local officials to identify a site for a potential new stadium. His group is rounded out by Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, and the Rogers family which controls Rogers Communications. ___ AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Andre Burakovsky Jersey . Mitchell first announced on Twitter that he has signed with the Steelers and his agent Brian Hamilton confirmed the signing to The Associated Press. Financial terms were not released. The Steelers have not announced the addition of Mitchell. Dmitry Orlov Jersey . The team reported the signing on its website Thursday, but said Friday the deal was off in "a mutual parting of the ways that had to do with the language of the contract. http://www.authenticnhlshopcapitals.com/...rsey-sale/ . The bout served as the headlining matchup of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva" event, which took place at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. It was Silva who looked well on his way to victory in the early going, delivering a pair of crushing kicks to the body that sent Brown crashing to the floor, doubled over in pain.As the Toronto Maple Leafs return from their Olympic break, Jonathan Bernier appears firmly entrenched as their starter while James Reimer is filling the back-up role. Reimer told TSNs Mark Masters on Tuesday that he doesnt know if he will be moved leading up to the March 5 trade deadline but added he wasnt interested in discussing it. "Who knows whats going to happen on the horizon here and right now I dont know if I want to talk about it too much." Reimer said he is at a juxtaposition, between being happy in Toronto yet yearning to start games. "I love playing here and obviously I want to be a starter, so its been an interesting year." The 25-year-old added that would be hard on him to leave the Maple Leafs organization. "This is the team I was drafted by and this is definitely a place I dreamed of playing my whole career." Reimer has played in 24 of the Leafs 60 games this season and started 33 of 48 games in the Leafs lockout-shortened 2013 campaign. He also started all seeven 2013 playoff games. Alexander Ovechkin Jersey. Reimer admitted that seeing a large reduction in playing time has not been easy on him. "Anytime you go from playing a lot of games to not its a hard pill to swallow. You want to play, you want to be the guy & you want to give your team the best chance to win. Theres no feeling like that other then when youre in there," Reimer told Masters. When he asked if he has proven himself as a starter in the NHL, Reimer said he didnt believe there was any question. "As far as Im concerned, I dont think its up for debate. I feel like Ive had a couple of solid years where Ive played really well. And obviously, last year went to the playoffs and led a team to the playoffs when probably a lot of people didnt expect us to go. Yeah, I feel like Ive played well and I dont think theres much debate for it. Maybe other people think so. I dont know." Reimer has a 10-6-1 record with 3.25 goals against average and a .911 save percentage with the Leafs this season.
