If rocker Jon Bon Jovi ever does wind up leading a group including MLSE that buys the Buffalo Bills, the franchise couldn't relocate to Toronto before 2020.

At least not without coughing up another $400 million. To shoot the entire price tag over $2 billion.

Talk about living on a prayer.

It would cost $400 million to buy the Bills out of their new 10-year lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y.

CBS Sports on Sunday morning broke the news that Bon Jovi, frontman for the rock band that bears his surname, is "consumed" with becoming an NFL owner, and that he "is among the parties positioning to purchase the Buffalo Bills when the team comes up for sale."

Ralph C. Wilson Jr., the team's owner since its founding as an original AFL club in 1959, is 95. He lives in the Detroit area and has not attended a Bills game this year or last, as he is not well enough to do so.
