Jerry Jones: 'Buffalo has a special place'

The Cowboys owner appeared on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made an appearance on Audacy's 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday and was asked about the new stadium situation in Buffalo and the Bills staying in Western New York for the long-term.

Jones, one of the most influential owners in the National Football League, started by comparing the Bills to the Green Bay Packers, as far as their history and importance to the league.

"Buffalo has a special place," he said. "All of those AFL teams have a special place, just like Green Bay does. So to me, my wish would be that they work something out and stay there."

Jones also recalled the first time he met Bills' co-owners Terry and Kim Pegula, saying meeting Terry for the first time was like "meeting Elvis" for him since they are both in the oil and gas industry.

Jones went on to say that the proximity of Buffalo to Toronto is a key component for them to maintain their long-term success in Buffalo.

"They have as fine an ownership situation for Buffalo or any city," he said. "To me they can expand and continue to get the interest they get from that great city Toronto that's 80 miles across the lake, and really have a great franchise."
