    Having seen a million faces and rocked them all as the frontman of Bon Jovi, Jon Bon Jovi is now part of a Toronto-based group headed by Larry Tanenbaum of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment looking into buying the Buffalo Bills.

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is all for the idea.

    "He knows many of the owners personally. All owners know of him,” Jones said of Bon Jovi, per ESPN Dallas. "But he knows them personally. He's committed, he's very genuine. You talk about individuals and talk about their qualification--there hasn't been anybody more qualified to be involved in sports ownership, or certainly ownership in the NFL, than Jon Bon Jovi.”

    Bon Jovi has some experience in the football business. In 2004, he founded the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League and was the team’s principle owner for the next seven years. Back in 2011, he was in talks to buy a share of the Atlanta Falcons.

    “I don't know of anyone that I have any more respect for as a father, or as a husband, or certainly as a potential business partner,” Jones said of Bon Jovi. “And so it's a credit to him that he's had the career that he's had, that he's qualified to become an NFL owner. As we know, you can't just wish for that. You have to be able to do something about that financially. So he's an outstanding candidate to be an owner in the NFL, and he's a great friend.”
