The Buffalo Bills may be heading West, as it appears they have been threatening New York state with a move to Austin, Texas. It’s all dependent on their demands for a new stadium. The Bills would like a new one, while the state is not currently playing ball with their demands.
An ownership source tells me that Austin is a possible destination—or threat—as one of the “other cities elsewhere that desire an NFL franchise and would pay handsomely for it.” https://t.co/zMf1oChO8K

The family who owns the Bills is well off, but they’re looking for New York State to foot the bill.

Here’s the thing, Jerry Jones is probably not going to want another NFL team in his home state.
So Jerry Jones, whose company is helping negotiate for the new Bills stadium, is going to let a team move into Texas? Sure Jan https://t.co/7xCHWTUhDO

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but I wouldn’t count on the Bills moving to Austin anytime soon.
Austin City Council members I’ve spoken with today tell me this is the first they’ve heard about the Buffalo Bills considering moving to Austin.
Austin FC, conversely, engaged council members early on before coming here.
We’ll see what happens. https://t.co/W7ixncBteG
