David Tepper says no plans to move the Panthers from Charlotte, N.C. Reminds Jerry Richardson named the team thé Carolina Panthers for a reason. Also reminds he won't take over till July when sale is final.

Done. Now that the 32 league owners have approved David Tepper to purchase the Carolina Panthers he must sell his five-percent minority ownership of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The close of the sale won't be complete until July, so Tepper won't be fully in charge until then. But he wasn't planning to make any changes on the football side, so it will remain business as usual there. Next up for the NFL is to complete its investigation into Jerry Richardson, who put the team up for sale after the season amidst allegations of sexual and racial misconduct. Richardson was present in Atlanta for Tuesday's owners meeting to cast his vote for Tepper, who had the winning bid at $2.275 billion. It was the first time Richardson attended the meetings since the spring of 2016 in Charlotte, N.C.
