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

"I will be the best National Football League owner that you can imagine", the music and fashion mogul, a.k.a. Sean Combs, explained in a video on Instagram.

"The Carolina Panthers and Mr. Richardson take these allegations very seriously and are fully committed to a full investigation and taking appropriate steps to address and remediate any misconduct", Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said in Friday's announcement.

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he will sell the team at the end of this season over sexual misconduct allegations.

Militants Attack Afghan Spy Agency's Facility in Kabul
Insider and imposter attacks are a near mainstay for Afghan and US troops in the fight against the Taliban and ISIS. Sarwari said the attack set off heavy clashes in which scores of Taliban attackers were driven away.

The 81-year-old, who is a former National Football League player, has been a majority owner of the Charlotte-based team since it began playing in the National Football League as an expansion franchise in 1995.

Diddy wasted no time throwing his hat in the ring as an ownership candidate. He said that this would be to create competition between Kaepernick and Cam Newton, so he isn't implying that the team would cut ties with the current Panthers' QB.

Golden States Warrior Steph Curry also tweeted that he wants in on the purchase.

Combs returned to Twitter to announce his real intention on buying the team.

Alex Collins totals 52 yards as Ravens take down the Browns
At the end of that drive, which came with 8:12 left in the second quarter, Crowell had run the ball five times for 72 yards. Defense kept the Browns in the game in the first half, but the Ravens still led 17-10 at intermission.

Richardson also allegedly used a racial slur towards a team scout, who is black.

Former San Diego 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who gained global notoriety when he made the controversial decision to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner", may be on Combs' shortlist to fill either spot. There are NO AFRICAN AMERICAN MAJORITY OWNERS IN THE NFL!

Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died. Kaepernick jumping into an ownership group, however, would be an extraordinary turn of events.

According to Forbes, the Panthers are worth $2.3 billion. Richardson, the Panthers only owner in their history, seemingly is attempting to get out ahead of any possible repercussions from these allegations.
