With news that the Carolina Panthers are being put up for sale following an investigation into workplace harassment claims against team founder Jerry Richardson, the music mogul is ready to make his leap into professional sports.
Shortly after that, National Basketball Association legend Stephen Curry responded to say he wanted to join the takeover.
Kaepernick, who was recently named Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award recipient, began protesting racial injustice in America by kneeling during the pregame national anthem while playing for San Francisco in August 2016. He will not entertain any inquiries before the last game has been played. Let's see if this happens! For years, Richardson held sway over many important committees, and was an influential player in the league's latest labor deal, which came after the owners locked out the players for several months in 2011.
If team officials are implicated as facilitating or failing to stop Richardson's alleged misconduct, Goodell could punish those officials.
Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said Sunday the team requested the league take over the investigation.
