The NFL’s Buffalo Bills reinstated its contributions to employees’ 401(k) plans, following an end to the league’s lockout on Monday, confirmed team spokesman Scott Berchtold.
Buffalo Bills CEO Russ Brandon announced in May that the Bills would suspend employer contributions to the retirement plans for all employees during the National Football League lockout, noting at the time that the team would “decide at a later date whether to reinstate them for 2011 based on our financial performance.”
Mr. Berchtold said in an e-mail that Mr. Brandon has not made a formal statement concerning the reinstatement of the employer contributions. Mr. Brandon could not be reached for comment.
The asset size of the Bills’ 401(k) plan could not be learned.
