Rocker Jon Bon Jovi is reportedly in talks to take over the Buffalo Bills football team.

The Bon Jovi star is said to be part of a Canadian group that has retained a banking firm and submitted paperwork expressing interest in buying the organization, which was put up for sale following the death of longtime owner Ralph Wilson in March.

The group also includes Larry Tanenbaum, the chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which controls ice hockey’s Toronto Maple Leafs and the basketball world’s Toronto Raptors.

Bon Jovi isn’t new to sports ownership – he previously took charge of arena football team the Philadelphia Soul.
