BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Donald Trump says he'll submit a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills but that it's unlikely his offer will be the winner.

The billionaire businessman told Fox News that's because he's "not going to do something totally stupid" to make the team his.

Trump spoke on the eve of Tuesday's deadline for prospective owners to submit initial bids for the National Football League franchise.

The team is for sale following the death of owner Ralph Wilson in March. Trump is one of many who have shown interest in buying it. Others include Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula, rock star Jon Bon Jovi and former Sabres owner Tom Golisano.

Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen tells The Associated Press the Trump bid package will be submitted Tuesday.
