In an act of mutual desperation, the Jon Bon Jovi and Jim Kelly groups have had conversations about joining forces in pursuit of the Buffalo Bills.

Multiple sources on both sides of the border have told The Buffalo News that Bon Jovi and his Toronto-based partners reached out to Kelly within the past five days for a Hail Mary attempt to help salvage their beleaguered bid.

Kelly, unable to hook on with anybody else, has at least considered the possibility.

The News was unable to confirm where discussions between the groups stood Saturday night. But sources in Western New York, Toronto and Manhattan said talks have occurred.

Kelly and his brother, Dan Kelly, have met with several potential ownership groups since Ralph Wilson died in March, but the Kellys haven't been able to strike a bidding partnership.
