Panthers owner Richardson to sell team amid misconduct allegations

Sean "Diddy" Combs wants to buy the Carolina Panthers.

"I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year's starting quarterback", Diddy said in a video posted to Instagram.

All the talk is because Jerry Richardson, following allegations of misconduct, announced he will be selling the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers won't be sold until after the football season, Richardson said Sunday, as the only owner the franchise has ever known is jumping ship during an NFL investigation into his behavior.

Richardson, 81, in a statement wrote, "I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership".

The response to allegations against Richardson - one of the NFL's most powerful owners and the only current owner who's played in the league - moved with astonishing speed.

"Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the end of this National Football League season".




Richardson said he doesn't plan to entertain offers until after the season, but some high-profile buyers are already showing interest.

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

Diddy wasted no time throwing his hat in the ring as an ownership candidate.

But Wilks, an African-American, said this of a racial slur allegedly used by Richardson towards a team scout.

Richardson, a former receiver for the Baltimore Colts, received a heart transplant in 2009 that saved his life.

The Panthers' original announcement raised questions about the independence of an investigation conducted by one of the team's owners.

Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died. A minimum of 23 of the remaining 31 National Football League ownership groups would need to sustain the charges and accompanying punishment in order for Richardson's ownership of the Panthers to be suspended or terminated. The team is now valued at $2.3 billion but Forbes says Combs only has a net worth of $820 million.
