Jerry Richardson, the founding owner of the Carolina Panthers, has agreed to sell the team to David A. Tepper, a billionaire hedge fund owner, for a record-setting amount of at least $2.2 billion. The sale price was confirmed by two people with knowledge of the deal.

The announcement came shortly after an article in Sports Illustrated linked him to allegations of sexual harassment. The NFL continues to investigate those allegations. The owners could vote on Tepper’s application as early as next week when they meet in Atlanta.

When Peyton Manning was reported last month to have turned down offers to become the color analyst for national NFL telecasts, he was thought to be more interested in running a team or even becoming part-owner of one. The Hall of Fame-bound former quarterback may well get that chance, according to a report Wednesday. A leading bidder for the Carolina Panthers has reached out to Manning about joining his ownership group, per the Charlotte Observer. The newspaper reported that Manning was “still considering” the offer. The group is led by Ben Navarro, a 54-year-old billionaire based in Charleston, South Carolina, who heads an investment services company. His father, Frank Navarro, was a head football coach at Columbia and Princeton. Navarro has reportedly made the highest offer for the Panthers, $2.6 billion, which would set a record for the most spent to acquire a U.S. sports team. Other known bidders include Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner David Tepper and private-equity … [Read more...] about Peyton Manning reportedly considering offer to join ownership bid for Carolina Panthers
