Diddy Wants To Be New Owner Of The Carolina Panthers

Sean Diddy Combs, a former rapper and now a prominent figure throughout media, is throwing his hat in the ring to buy the team.

And posted this video in which he says his first move would be to sign Colin Kaepernick.

The post-Weinstein sexual harassment reckoning reached the National Football League this weekend, culminating in Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announcing that he will sell the franchise he founded at the end of the season.

Then on Friday, the Panthers said they had hired lawyers to look into accusations against Richardson, the team's founding owner.

"I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership". "ATTN all @NFL owners, it's time for diversity!"

If Diddy does, he's also got great news for Colin Kaepernick, who is now a free agent after leaving the San Francisco 49ers and has filed a grievance against the NFL for allegedly conspiring to keep him out of the league after he repeatedly demonstrated for racial justice.

Diddy's message was retweeted by Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, who said he wanted in.

Retweets can't get you an National Football League team ( it can make you the Bloomin' Onion at the Outback Bowl, however) but Diddy is making it clear that he is serious about National Football League ownership. He will not entertain any inquiries before the last game has been played. "Let's make it happen!" he wrote. Richardson, the Panthers only owner in their history, seemingly is attempting to get out ahead of any possible repercussions from these allegations. For years, Richardson held sway over many important committees, and was an influential player in the league's latest labor deal, which came after the owners locked out the players for several months in 2011.

"I want in on the ownership group!" The Panthers are now valued at $2.3 billion, according to Forbes.
