Andre Reed

Donald Trump Could SAVE the Bills

EXCLUSIVE

04-03-14-reed-trump-billsDonald Trump could put the Buffalo Bills BACK ON THE MAP -- so says Bills legend Andre Reed who tells TMZ Sports he FULLY SUPPORTS Donald becoming an owner of the team. 

Earlier this week, Trump claimed he'd been approached about buying a stake in the squad -- and said he would "take a look at it."

Now, Reed says his fingers are crossed that Trump actually pulls the trigger because, "I think he would uplift the whole city."

"I like the idea of Trump taking over," Reed says ... "He'd bring change."

"The Bills are in such disarray, that bringing in The Donald would give fans hope that the team would stay in Buffalo."

Reed says he understands owning an NFL team is incredibly challenging, but says "I think he'd be able to deal with it. His track record speaks for itself."

Andre -- who's set to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame later this year -- says he'd rally other Bills greats like Bruce Smith and Thurman Thomas to get behind Trump and help in any way they can. 

One final quote -- "We're talkin' about Donald Trump, not Donald Punk!"

The only way to save the Bills is to move that crappy team to another city...maybe a warm sunny climate?

AS A TRUE FOOTBALL FAN(ALL LEVELS FROM PEE WEE TO THE NFL) I HOPE WHOEVER BUYS THE BUFFALO BILLS, KEEPS THE TEAM IN BUFFALO. I DO UNDERSTAND HOWEVER THAT BUSINESS MAY MEAN CHANGE FOR THE FRANCHISE ESPECIALLY IF WHOEVER BUYS IT WANTS IT ELSEWHERE BUT, THE BILLS HAVE A GREAT HISTORY GOING BACK TO BEING AN ORIGINAL AFL TEAM, ONE OF THE TEAMS THAT WAS A THREAT TO THE NFL CREATING WHATS HERE TODAY. SAD WHEN THE OILERS(HOUSTON) BECAME THE TENNESSEE TITANS FOR ME, ALL THAT TRADITION ALMOST DISAPPEARED WHEN THE CITY AND NAME CHANGED. SEE THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS FOR THAT EXAMPLE OF THE PAST TEAMS ACCOMPLISHMENTS BEING ALMOST A GONE IF NOT FORGOTTEN ALL THE WAY, UNITAS AND MACKEY AND OTHER COLTS GREATS SEEM TO NOT BE A PART OF THE HISTORY PEYTON MANNING MADE AS A COLT AND ID HATE TO SEE "ANOTHER FRANCHISE" SUFFER THE SAME FATE. AGAIN, I DO GET IF BUSINESS LEADS THE TEAM TO L.A OR ANOTHER CITY LIKE SAY SAN ANTONIO OR LOUISVILLE OR MEMPHIS. JUST COULDNT IMAGINE THOSE BILLS AND THERE AWESOME FANS WITHOUT THERE TEAM TO CHEER ON. THOSE FANS ARE SOME OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD, WOULD KILL THE SPIRITS OF THE CITY!!!! LGNM

IM A DALLAS COWBOY FAN AND ID JUST BE DEVASTATED FOR THE CITY OF BUFFALO AND THE TEAM AND FANS IF THEY LOSE THAT TEAM. TALK ABOUT NOT RECOVERING. THIS COULD BE TEN TIMES WORSE THAN WHEN THE BROWNS LEFT CLEVELAND BECAUSE THAT CITY AT LEAST HAD THE NBA TEAM AND THE MLB TEAM BUT, BUFFALO AND THE BILLS, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE HOCKEY, BUFFALO IS THE BILLS, THATS THAT CITIES BLOODLINE, ALMOST LIKE THE PACKERS IN GREEN BAY, IT MEANS MORE TO SMALLER MARKETS AND ITS NOT LIKE THE FANS DONT BUY TICKETS! BUFFALO HAS WON(4 SUPER BOWL TRIPS, NEVER TO BE DONE AGAIN, GREATEST FEAT IN THE NFL'S HISTORY TO ME)! CITIES LIKE BUFFALO ARE WHAT MADE THE NFL, CITIES AND PLACES THE NFL WENT AND AFL BECAUSE THEY SAW A NEED. WE COULDNT HAVE FOOTBALL WITHOUT A TEAM IN CLEVELAND NOR CAN WE WITHOUT ONE IN BUFFALO. AS A COWBOY FAN, IT DOESNT EFFECT ME IF THEY LEAVE BUFFALO BUT, AS A FOOTBALL FAN IT WILL BE SAD JUST AS A PUREST IF THEY DO, THOSE FANS ARE GREAT, NEVER TURNED ON THE BILLS IN THE BAD TIMES NOR WILL THEY EVER. THE OWNER WHO BUYS THE TEAM JUST NEEDS TO CHANGE THE CULTURE AND GET BETTER PLAYERS AND HIRE A GREAT GM AND GET SOME STAR PLAYERS, THATS ALL. LGNM

There is no love lost between Donald Trump and the NFL. Trump was a part of the USFL and that ended very badly. I doubt the other team owners want him to have a team.
