Diddy Wants To Buy Carolina Panthers and Plans To Hire Colin Kaepernick

Diddy is ready to shake things up and wants a seat at the NFL table. The mogul took to social media Sunday announcing his desire to purchase the Carolina Panthers.

“I believe it’s time for the franchise to be turned over to new ownership,” Diddy said on Instagram.

The Panthers are seeking new ownership after a major scandal surfaced surrounding founder Jerry Richardson. It was revealed that he paid at least four women off over sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and the use of a racial slur.

And that’s not all. Diddy went on to say if given the opportunity to purchase the franchise, he intends to address the Colin Kaepernick issue immediately and campaign for him to become starting quarterback for the team.

If you recall Diddy was quoted some time ago in Bloomberg:

“I have aspirations to become — it will happen — to become the first African-American majority owner. Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it’s time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. So that’s one of my dreams.”

Do you know how MAJOR this move could be? What affect could this potentially have on the culture of the NFL? It’s time to diversity NFL ownership.

We’re ecstatic to hear this and will monitor this story closely.
