Posted by Chris Brown on June 23, 2011 – 1:27 pm

Bills CEO Russ Brandon covered the whole gamut of items on Buffalo’s table this offseason and beyond during local media interviews this week. That included comment on the future of the Bills Toronto Series.

When asked if negotiations have begun on a new agreement to stretch beyond the current five-year deal here was Brandon’s comment.

“We have had discussions with them right now about where the agreement is with the CBA and with the game this year,” said Brandon. “Our focus right now is playing the Redskins up in Toronto.  They have some new leadership there, obviously Phil Lind is their vice chairman and Keith Pelley is their new president.  Keith and I have had some conversations relative to our current agreement.  We anticipate having some discussions moving forward.”

Buffalo’s current agreement lasts through the 2012 season. Brandon also said that Toronto has to be part of the franchise’s regional footprint for the long term.
