Diddy expresses interest in buying Carolina Panthers, would ‘immediately’ sign Colin Kaepernick

Dec 18, 2017 |

The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Panthers compete in the National Football League, as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference South division.

Diddy wants to buy Carolina Panthers after owner Jerry Richardson announces plans to sell the NFL franchise following allegations of workplace misconduct.

The Carolina Panthers will be up for sale following the 2017 season, with Jerry Richardson announcing his intention to put the team on the market when Carolina’s last game ends. Although Richardson did not address the NFL’s investigation into alleged workplace misconduct, it is clear why Richardson would be moving on after more than 20 years of being the face of the franchise.

The rapper/producer/mogul tweeted on Sunday afternoon that he is interested in the franchise and wants to become the first African-American majority owner of an NFL team.

Remember, Forbes has Diddy listed with a net worth of $820 million, which would certainly be enough to get involved in a situation where he could own part of an NFL team, but not exactly enough to buy the Panthers outright. Carolina has been valued at over $2 billion, which is not an unreasonable number given the recent success of the team as well as seeing the Bills be sold to Terry Pegula for somewhere in the range of $1.5 billion back in 2014.
