Bills put Toronto series on hold

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — As part of the initial five-year deal, Rogers agreed to pay $78 million to essentially lease eight Bills home games — five regular season and three preseason. The final preseason game was dropped because of scheduling difficulties.

In exchange, the Bills earned more than double what they usually generated from hosting games in Buffalo. The value of the most recent deal has not been revealed, but the price tag was expected to be lower after Rogers' officials expressed concerns about the value of the series.
