Attention to the Carolina PANTHERS!
Just before Sunday's game inside Bank of America Stadium was set to kickoff, Sports Illustrated published a report that at least four former Panthers employees received settlements from the team after Richardson made inappropriate comments, including "sexual suggestive language and behavior".
The Panthers will probably attract numerous bidders, the source said, because they are thought to be well-run and in a decent market on the East Coast.
"Let's make history", he wrote.
It's been a hectic 72 hours for the Panthers and that all started on Friday when the team announced that Richardson was being investigated for alleged workplace misconduct.
"I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership", Jerry Richardson said in a statement.
If NFL owner Jerry Richardson is looking for potential suitors for his upcoming sale of the Carolina Panthers, Sean "Diddy" Combs wants him to look no further. "We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game [of this season] is played".
New ownership could result in relocation and the Panthers' obligation to stay in Charlotte expires in the summer of 2019.
Diddy responded to Richardson's news via his official Instagram page, posting a video captioned: "Attention to the Carolina PANTHERS! It's just competition baby", he added.
According to Forbes, the Panthers are worth $2.3 billion, making them the 21st most valuable franchise among all 32 National Football League teams.
"I want in on the ownership group!"
Prior to joining the owner's office, Becker was the team's director of entertainment from 2012-14.
Richardson has an estimated net worth over $1.1 billion. The last team sold was the Buffalo Bills for $1.4 billion to Terry Pegula in 2014, Forbes Magazine reported previous year.
