Panthers react to Richardson's plan to sell team

Sean "Diddy" Combs announced on social media that he wants to buy the Panthers.

Diddy also announced on Instagram that he would be the "best National Football League owner" and plans to sign Colin Kaepernick to the team.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is saddened by the news of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson deciding to sell his franchise in the wake of sexual and racial allegations detailed in a Sports Illustrated report. The NFL took over that investigation on Sunday, and hours later Richardson said he would put the team up for sale, without saying why or admitting any wrongdoing.

"I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership".

On Instagram, he said he'd let Kaepernick compete with the Panthers' QB Cam Newton for starting position. "ATTN all @NFL owners, it's time for diversity!"

Panthers coach Ron Rivera, according to the team's website, said that the investigation would need to take its course.




Former San Diego 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who gained worldwide notoriety when he made the controversial decision to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner", may be on Combs' shortlist to fill either spot.

Tweeted Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry, "I want in!".

The accusations made against Richardson, 81, included sexual harassment of multiple women and the use of a racial slur toward a scout who has since left the team. We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played.

"Let's make history", he wrote.

It appears the moves by Richardson and the National Football League were an attempt to preempt the fallout from a Sports Illustrated investigation, which was published on Sunday. Team President Danny Morrison resigned earlier this year and has not been replaced, and Jerry Richardson fired Dave Gettleman as the Panthers' general manager just before training camp and replaced him with former GM Marty Hurney.

Producer Rico Love wants to see Diddy grabbing his suit and tie as the owner of the North Carolina Panthers. The team is now valued at $2.3 billion but Forbes says Combs only has a net worth of $820 million.
