  • Panthers' owner plans to sell team as National Football League vows misconduct inquiry

It is also worth noting that Richardson's decision to sell the Panthers comes nearly immediately after allegations of workplace misconduct surfaced.

The NFL said through a spokesman that it will conduct the investigation and expects to retain outside counsel, but declined further comment. Combs tweeted Sunday night.

The Panthers have one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the NFL. I know that he made it the old-fashioned way.

The money is less than what the team was seeking for improvements of the stadium, which opened in 1996.

"He'll be the first to tell you he's had a blessed life", Jones said. In my opinion, we also have the best organization, and they have served us well.

The hip-hop mogul noted that the NFL's current roster of owners lacks diversity: Despite the high percentage of black players in the league, he'd be the first black owner.

"I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this National Football League season". We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played.


The statement applauded Carolinians for making the Panthers an "integral part of the community", and he said that even if he isn't the owner, he'll always be the Panthers' No. 1 fan.

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.

SI said the settlements included non-disclosure agreements, forbidding the people involved from discussing the matter.

The statement does not address the allegations, which were reported anonymously to Sports Illustrated. And as with any team sale, there's at least some concern about a new owner and whether he or she will want to keep the team in Charlotte. Then, in his rolling Southern drawl, he'd offer comment, drawing from a store of one-liners he'd recycle each week. "But I have got to be honest with you, I have not read them".

The NFL on Sunday said it has taken over the investigation of allegations of workplace misconduct.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said after Sunday's win over Green Bay that Richardson has served as a father figure to him since his arrival in Carolina seven years ago.
