Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula’s proposal to change the team’s nickname to the Bills and rename it the Bills of Buffalo was a political statement and the first step in trying to revive a struggling franchise.
The proposal, if it becomes law, would be a step toward changing the Bills nickname from the NFL’s Green Bay Packers to the NFL Bills of New York.
In doing so, it could help the Bills become a more popular franchise.
It would also help put the team in better financial shape, Pegula said.
“Our fans are our future and we’re going to be a better organization as a result,” Pegula told reporters on Friday.
The Bills’ name is synonymous with the team and has been since the NFL franchise first played in New York City in 1904.
The team has been struggling since it moved to Buffalo in 1996 and has lost three of the last four seasons.
The franchise was sold in 2015 to Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Greenberg and the Bills renamed to the Buffalo Bills.
The name of the team has not changed.
The new name, however, is not a new idea.
In January, the Buffalo-based Bills had a chance to change their name to the Green Bay Packer Football team in the hopes of bringing more people to the team.
The Green Bay-based Packers team was not selected to the inaugural Pro Bowl in the 1980s.
The Buffalo Bills franchise is one of the oldest in the NFL and has had a strong fan base in the city for more than 100 years.
The New York Jets have had their nickname since 1970 and the New York Giants have the moniker since 1949.
“This is a time to take stock of the future and look forward to a brighter future,” Pegulas said in a statement.
“For many years, the Green-Bills have been a symbol of our community and a symbol for the city. “
“It’s time for us to move forward with our legacy and our future together.” “
Pegulas also said he would consider adding a new name to an existing team that was not part of the NFL. “

Pegulas also said he would consider adding a new name to an existing team that was not part of the NFL.
He is not alone in that desire.
“If I had to name my team right now, I’d be the Green Bills of Oakland, which is a fun name for me because I like to think that we are a team that can do great things and we can go all the way to the Super Bowl,” Pegs said.
The NFL and the NFL Players Association have not decided what the name of a new team would be.
