Posted by Chris Brown on June 23, 2011 – 1:16 pm

Even though there have been reports that AEG has contacted more than the five NFL clubs it made public for possible relocation to Los Angeles, Bills CEO Russ Brandon stated Thursday that they haven’t made contact with him.

When asked during a media interview Thursday if AEG had contacted the Bills, the team’s CEO said they had not.

“Not that I am aware of,” said Brandon. “They did not contact me.”

When asked what he would say if AEG did contact the Bills Brandon said the following.

“We are very happy in Buffalo…  Our focus is right here in Buffalo – point blank, period.  That is where it is going to be for many years to come.”

The five NFL teams identified in the report were Jacksonville, Minnesota, Oakland, St. Louis and San Diego. There were subsequent reports that more NFL teams were contacted by AEG reps, but apparently the Bills are not one of them per Brandon.

Buffalo’s CEO made several more comments in the interview including about the team’s future viability.
