Early Lead Colin Kaepernick tweets that he wants to join Diddy in buying th

Just a few weeks ago, Diddy was saying he wanted to buy the entire NFL. That, of course, was never realistic, but with the Carolina Panthers suddenly up for sale, you’d have to think the rapper/entrepreneur would be interested, right?

Right.

[Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announces plan to sell team amid NFL investigation]

Actually, Diddy has a two-part plan in mind: Buy the Panthers, then sign Colin Kaepernick. When he learned of Diddy’s plan, Kaepernick had other ideas. Unsigned since parting with the San Francisco 49ers last March, he is thinking about moving up in the NFL’s hierarchy. “I want in on the ownership group!” he tweeted Monday morning. “Let’s make it happen!”

Which would be interesting if, as many have theorized, Kaepernick is being blackballed from the league because of his national anthem demonstrations.

As for Diddy, he has been in Kaepernick’s corner for a while.

Less than an hour after the Panthers announced that owner Jerry Richardson, embroiled in an NFL investigation of allegations of workplace misconduct, was ready to “turn the franchise over to new ownership,” Diddy had a pair of tweets of his own. The first asked his 13.9 million followers to “spread the word” of his interest, with, as of this writing, more than 40,000 Twitter users complying.
