The Bills are staying in New York. At least, for now.

andrew cuomo signing bills agreement 2012-12-21The Cuomo admin and the Buffalo Bills announced a deal today that will keep the team in Buffalo for at least the next seven years. As part of the deal, the state is putting up $54 million toward upgrades at Ralph Wilson Stadium -- Erie County is contributing $41 million and the team $35 million. Andrew Cuomo said he's "proud" that is paying the biggest share -- and called it "an investment in Western New York." The agreement is for 10 years, but it provides them team the opportunity to buy their way out of the deal in the seventh year for $28 million.
