Sports Report: Buffalo Sabres Owners Reach Agreement To Buy The Buffalo Bills



Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula submitted an NFL-record $1.4 billion dollar bid in reaching a tentative agreement to buy the Buffalo Bills.

The team announced the deal on Tuesday.

The price was revealed hours after late owner Ralph Wilson's estate announced it had reached "a definitive agreement" to sell the Bills to the Pegulas.

The price eclipses the previous high of $1.1 billion dollars set in 2009, when Stephen Ross completed his purchase of the Miami Dolphins. The Bills sale is subject NFL owners' approval at league meetings on Oct. 8.

Fallout continues from that incriminating video involving Ray Rice striking his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator. The sporting goods company Nike and the Electronic Arts gaming company dropped the suspending running back from endorsement contracts.

Meanwhile, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is not ruling out the possibility that Ray Rice could return to the NFL at some point. But Goodell says first he would have to be satisfied that Rice has addressed his personal issues, and that he has paid a price for his behavior.


In Major League Baseball, in the American League, Tampa Bay edged the Yankees 4-3, Baltimore beat Boston 4-1, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia could miss the rest of the season with soreness in his left hand and left wrist. Boston manager John Farrell raised the possibility before last night's game with the Baltimore Orioles. Farrell says Pedroia has been bothered by the ailment since midseason and an MRI yesterday showed increased inflammation.
