Niagara County being considered for Bills stadium

Don't rule out Niagara Falls as a potential home of the Buffalo Bills. Members of a newly formed stadium task force tell The Associated Press they're considering sites in Niagara County in determining the best options to secure the franchise's long-term viability in the region.

Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy calls Niagara County a possibility. Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster says it's important that all options are considered.

That goes beyond the group's initial directive, which was to seek potential stadium sites in Erie County. 

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, who is on the stadium group, says he would like to see a stadium downtown. But he says the overall focus is on keeping the team in the region.

"Certainly, as mayor, my push would be to keep it in Buffalo. But our charge on the committee, really, is to keep the Bills here in Buffalo and Western New York," Brown told WBFO.

Another topic discussed by the New Stadium Working Group is relocating the Bills' headquarters to the University at Buffalo campus in Amherst, where a new practice facility would be built and shared with the school's football team.
