Buffalo Bills fans are worried that if a Toronto-based group, that includes singer Jon Bon Jovi, wins its bid for the team, the franchise could be leaving Western New York. Sunday morning, Bon Jovi said that's not the case.

In a letter to The Buffalo News, the musician said fans have nothing to worry about.

"Our objective is simple: to carry on the legacy of Ralph Wilson and make the Bills successful in Buffalo," he wrote to the paper.

According to The Buffalo News, Bon Jovi would look to build a "state-of-the-art NFL stadium" to honor Wilson, who died earlier this year.

"I know how much the Bills mean to the people of this region," Bon Jovi says. "So I want you to hear this from me: I'm not risking it all to let you down."

Other bidders include Donald Trump and Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula. On Saturday, The New York Post reported Tom Golisano is also preparing a bid.
