New Bills owner would welcome NFL team in Toronto

When Terry Pegula took ownership of the Buffalo Bills and vowed to keep them in Western New York, it looked like the dream of an NFL team in Toronto might be dead (or at least put on ice for a long time). That might not be the case, however.

Recent comments from the Bills owner indicate that he'd support a rival team in Toronto, and that he indicated as much when he made himself a candidate for Bills' ownership after the passing of Ralph Wilson.

"I don't think I would have a problem with it if they could support the team," Pegula told the Toronto Sun. "It's a big enough market."

That sounds promising for NFL fans in Toronto, though it'll take a lot more than Pegula's blessing to see a team set up in Toronto. First the NFL needs to figure out what it's doing with a Los Angeles franchise and then there's the matter of a proper stadium to be built in Toronto.

In other words, the news is promising in the long term, but it might still be ages before a possible NFL team will call Toronto home.
