Good news for Buffalo Bills fans: rock legend, sports entrepreneur and prospective team owner Jon Bon Jovi plans to keep the New York football team right where they are.

In attempt to squash any rumors he’d be doing otherwise, the Bon Jovi frontman penned a letter in The Buffalo News addressing his potential plans for the team in the wake of former Bills owner and founder Ralph Wilson’s death.

Bon Jovi writes, “Our objective is simple: to carry on the legacy of Ralph Wilson and make the Bills successful in Buffalo.”

Bon Jovi also used his platform to defend his motives for wanting to purchase the team and, more generally, his involvement in sports. “Being part of the NFL is something I have been working toward for a long time,” he said, “Ten years ago, I started by taking an expansion Arena Football team, the Philadelphia Soul, from its inception to winning a championship in five years. I wanted to learn what it takes to build a successful football organization. I was involved in every aspect of that team from its beginning and I lived for and loved every moment.”

He added: “My family and I are prepared to make this life-changing commitment to be part of the Bills. This is not a hobby or an acquisition. Building a winner on and off the field will be job one and I intend to spend as much time on the ground in Buffalo as needed to accomplish that goal.”
