The Carolina Panthers are up for sale, and the star-studded trio of Diddy, Stephen Curry, and Colin Kaepernick are apparently first in line at the NFL franchise store.

Panthers owner and founder Jerry Richardson is selling the team in light of his being under investigation from the NFL for sexual misconduct and racist language in the workplace.

Music mogul Diddy responded by tweeting his intentions.

“I would be the best NFL owner that you could imagine,” said Diddy in a Twitter video, seemingly unaware that the team is most definitely set at starting quarterback with Cam Newton under contract. “I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year’s starting quarterback. It’s just competition. It’s just competition. But also, I will have the best halftime show, the best selection of music.”

Unfortunately for Diddy, his estimated $280 million net worth likely won’t cut it—the Panthers were valued at $2.3 billion by Forbes in September. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of stars hoping to help—including Kaepernick, who wants to do more than just helm the team’s offense, and noted Panthers fan Curry.

If he’s gonna pull this off, not only will he have to realize Kaepernick isn’t taking the starting gig from Cam, but someone’s gotta tell him the team is called the Carolina Panthers, not the “North Carolina Panthers.”
