Still, Diddy would face forbidding odds to buy the Panthers.

Sports Illustrated reported Sunday that at least four former Carolina Panthers employees have received "significant" monetary settlements as a result of inappropriate workplace comments and conduct by Richardson. "Let's make it happen!" he tweeted. Richardson is facing allegations of workplace misconduct.

Richardson, according to the report, would make remarks about women's rears on "Jeans Fridays" on his way to his office.

Shortly after Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced he was putting the franchise up for sale, it appears free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is ready to take on an ownership role. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the 81-year-old owner is expected to get "in range" of $2.5 billion when he sells the team.

"If the owner is guilty he will have to live up to it", said fan, Shawn Jenkins.

After Diddy's initial tweets late Sunday, two African American sporting stars said they wanted to join his bid - Colin Kaepernick and Steph Curry.

"These have been some of the most hard days of my 19 years with the Panthers, but I am lifted up by the strong resolve and the commitment our employees have shown to this organization", Becker said in a statement released by the team. "The North Carolina Panthers are up for sale", Diddy announced in a Sunday night Instagram video.

"We've been weathering the storm and not letting the media affect and alter our focus", Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said.

Richardson has an estimated net worth over $1.1 billion.

Kaepernick, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, began sitting or kneeling for the national anthem ahead of games last season, in protest at perceived racial injustice, and the movement spread throughout the league and beyond. "(The sexual misconduct allegations are) something extremely serious right now, especially when you see so many people getting picked out because of things they have done in the past.
