BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Jacobs family is, in fact, involved in helping secure the Bills future in Buffalo, and hasnt ruled out getting involved in buying the team. Jeremy Jacobs Jr., the son of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Sr., told The Buffalo News on Wednesday that the family has been engaged in discussions involving the franchises future, but said it was too early to say whether it will make an attempt to buy the team. "We are using our resources, our contacts, our relationships to do everything we can to ensure the Bills stay in Buffalo," Jacobs said in a story published on the newspapers website. Jacobs, however, stopped short of saying his family would be involved in a prospective ownership group. "Its still early in the process, and its impossible to say either way," he said. Jacobs comments were the first made by any family member expressing interest in the team. Bills owner Ralph Wilson died last month. And his comments do not contradict a statement his father issued last week. In a released statement, Jacobs Sr. said he has no intention of selling the Bruins in order to purchase the Bills, a move that would be required because NFL rules do not allow owners to control major sports franchises in separate markets. Jacobs statement failed to address whether any of his three sons would be involved in an ownership group. Several people familiar with the Bills future had previously told The Associated Press that Jacobs and his sons were linked to discussions involving the teams. "He is definitely a player," one person told the AP, speaking on condition of anonymity because Jacobs has not revealed his plans. Members of the Jacobs family have declined interview requests with the AP over the past three weeks. The Jacobs are from Buffalo and own Delaware North food service company, which has its headquarters in the city. Jeremy Jr., Louis and Charlie Jacobs are all listed as principals at Delaware North. Charlie Jacobs is also a principal of the Bruins. In 2010, the NFL allowed Stan Kroenke to take over as the St. Louis Rams majority owner after he agreed to turn over operational and financial control of the NBA Denver Nuggets and NHL Colorado Avalanche to son Josh. Wilsons widow, Mary Wilson, has taken over as the teams controlling owner until the franchise is expected to be placed on the market. That wont begin until Wilsons estate hires an investment banking firm, which will oversee the sale process. That leaves the teams future in Buffalo uncertain, because a sale opens the possibility of the team relocating. The Bills are essentially locked into playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the 2019 season because of the lease they negotiated with the state and Erie County in December 2012. The team would incur a $400 million penalty by even broaching the prospect of moving during the leases term. There is a one-time exception allowing the Bills to break the lease for just under $28.4 million in July 2020. The Jacobs do face one obstacle because of NFL rules barring owners from having links to casinos, racetracks and other gaming interests. Delaware Norths holding include numerous racing and gambling operations across the country. "We have warts," Jeremy Jr. acknowledged, referring to leagues anti-gambling rules. ___ AP NFL website:

. -- The Buffalo Sabres got the lead for a change, and held onto it thanks to a stellar performance in goal by Jhonas Enroth.MADRID, Spain -- Second-ranked Li Na started her Madrid Open campaign by overcoming a stubborn opponent just as third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska did to reach the second round on Monday. Lis clay debut began with an encouraging 6-1, 7-6 (7) victory over Belgiums Kirsten Flipkens before Radwanska also advanced thanks to a 7-6 (3), 6-2 win over Canadas Eugenie Bouchard. Li, the Australian Open champion, survived two set points by Flipkens, and eventually took the tiebreaker to avoid another surprise first-round exit like last year. Li goes up against fellow Chinese player Zheng Jie next. Bouchard came out on the losing end of a tough match against third-ranked Radwanska, as the Polish player earned her 25th match win of the season. "The tiebreak was the biggest key," said Radwanska, who goes on to play Svetlana Kuznetsova. "I did a couple of good shots in the tiebreak and managed to win that, and that gave me more confidence in the second set." Kuznetsova held off Alize Cornet of France 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 as the Russian continued her good run, including reaching the final in Portugal on Saturday. Also, Caroline Wozniacki was a 6-2, 6-2 victor over Ekaterina Makarova while Spanish player Carla Suarez Navarro followed up from winning her first career title in Portugal with a 7-6 (6), 6-4 win over Yvonne Meusburger of Austria. Ninth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia was bounced 6-4, 6-0 by Samantha Stosur of Australia.

Nishikori said working with former French Open champion Michael Chang boosted his confidence on this surface as he won his first career clay title in Barcelona. "I did well last week in Barcelona and Im getting better on clay, so hopefully I can go further this week," the 12th-ranked Japanese player said. "There was just one bad game, on my serve at 3-2 in the second set. Otherwise, it was an almost perfect match." Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, while Gilles Simon emerged from another all-French matchup, after Benoit Paire retired, to play Roger Federer next.
