Panthers owner plans to sell team amid investigation into workplace misconduct

Panthers owner plans to sell team amid investigation into workplace misconduct

Rapper and businessman Sean "Diddy" Combs is launching a social media campaign to become the next owner of the Charlotte-based Carolina Panthers.

Diddy also announced on Instagram that he would be the "best National Football League owner" and plans to sign Colin Kaepernick to the team.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was "very sad" following the announcement Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson would sell the franchise amid allegations of sexual harassment by female employees.

The NFL on Sunday said it has taken over the investigation of allegations of workplace misconduct by the 81-year-old owner.

"I will be the best National Football League owner that you can imagine", he said. "ATTN all @NFL owners, it's time for diversity!"

In a statement, Richardson said the sales process would commence after the season.

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.

Richardson, a former football player with the Baltimore Colts, is responsible for bringing the NFL to the Carolinas in 1993 when the Panthers joined the league as an expansion team. He will not entertain any inquiries before the last game has been played.

The NFL said earlier Sunday that it had taken over the investigation, and a report emerged that multiple former team employees received financial settlements over inappropriate comments and behavior by Richardson in the workplace.

"There are no majority African American NFL owners", tweeted Combs. "Let's make history".

Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died.

"I want in on the ownership group!"

The Panthers are valued at 2.3billion by Forbes, and with Diddy said to be worth 820million, the hip-hop star would certainly need some help.

The NFL has launched its own investigation in to the allegations after the team announced an internal investigation on Friday.
