Jon Bon Jovi might still be livin' on a Hail Mary. But his publicist on Monday tried to tackle speculation that the rocker intends to cross the goal line any time soon in his pursuit of NFL ownership.

Specifically, with the Buffalo Bills.

On Sunday reports broke that Bon Jovi, 51, is in cahoots with executives of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) to assemble a team to buy the Bills after 95-year-old owner Ralph Wilson dies.

Bon Jovi's publicist Ken Sunshine told John Wawrow, Associated Press correspondent in Buffalo, that his client is not currently pursuing the Bills.

"The Bills are not for sale, and (Bon Jovi) has too much respect for Mr. Wilson to engage in any discussions of buying the team," Sunshine told Wawrow.

Bon Jovi has "a day job that's doing very well," Sunshine said in regard to the rock band that bears his client's surname.

"It's preposterous to say he's had any discussions with the Bills and Erie County."
