Hours after the NFL said it would take over the investigation into workplace misconduct by Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson -- and after Sports Illustrated reported, citing unnamed sources, that confidential payouts had been made for sexual harassment and using a racial slur -- he announced he will sell the team after the season.

Among those immediately throwing their hats in the ring as possible buyers were musician/actor Diddy and two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry.

In an Instagram post, Diddy said if he gets the team, he would immediately hire Colin Kaepernick as quarterback. Curry followed up with a tweet that read, "I want in!"
