In the early 1980s, Herschel Walker played for Donald Trump’s New Jersey Generals of the USFL. From there, he went to Jerry Jones’s Cowboys.
Now, with reports stating that Trump wants to get back in the football business by purchasing the Buffalo Bills, Walker can’t help but draw a comparison between the two billionaires.
“He would be a great owner, and a credible owner,” Walker said of Trump, per USA TODAY Sports. “People can think what they want to think about Jerry Jones--he’s a terrible general manager, but he’s a great owner. He has done a tremendous job in marketing his team to keep it relevant. I think that’s the same thing Donald Trump would do with the Buffalo Bills.”
Walker knows well that both Jones and Trump are adept at the art of stirring things up.
“He may rub some people the wrong way, but you can’t argue with his success as a businessman,” Walker said. “You want an owner with some flair. He knows how to promote.”
