The Panthers won't be sold until after the football season, Richardson said Sunday, as the only owner the franchise has ever known is jumping ship during an NFL investigation into his behavior.

After this news made waves Saturday and Sunday it was announced that Richardson will be putting the team up for sale following this season.

While Richardson tries to behave as if the news of the past 24 hours is just coincidental to the shocking allegations against him, which Sports Illustrated reported were both sexual and racial in nature, the Panthers are thrown into upheaval. It would not comment on the nature of the accusations.

Team spokesman Steven Drummond said in a release that the Panthers take these allegations very seriously and are committed to a full investigation.

American rap star Sean "Diddy" Combs has expressed an interest in buying National Football League team Carolina Panthers.

However, with an estimated net worth of around $800 million, Diddy would likely have to find outside money to finance the purchase of a team that Forbes estimates to be worth $2.3 billion.

"There are NO AFRICAN AMERICAN MAJORITY OWNERS IN THE NFL! Let's make history", Combs said in another tweet.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson Placed on Injured Reserve
Luckily for those who hate season finale teasers, Adrian Peterson has clarified what his future looks like. In a statement, the running back says he's focused on getting better and looking forward to next season.

Curry, who now plays for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association, has a net worth of $77 million. He would ask women to let him shave their legs, grope them and even allegedly directed a racial slur at a (now former) team employee.

The magazine did not name the sources cited in the story but the settlements involved nondisclosure clauses.

The Panthers said on Friday that law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan would lead the internal investigation, and that former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, a minority team owner, would oversee it.

The NFL doesn't like celebrity owners owning a majority stake in a team.

The Panthers shut off access to cameras and reporters for player arrivals for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers at Bank of America Stadium, according to ESPN.

Rivera didn't say much about the investigation into Richardson's alleged misconduct.
