Peyton Manning reportedly considering offer to join ownership bid for Carolina Panthers

Peyton Manning reportedly considering offer to join ownership bid for Carolina Panthers

According to The Charlotte Observer, Charleston billionaire Ben Navarro offered Manning a spot in the ownership group that is now bidding on the Carolina franchise and the former quarterback is still mulling whether he wants to come on as a limited partner. Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported last month that Manning was uncomfortable with the idea of having to criticize his younger brother, New York Giants QB Eli Manning, as part of any analyst job.

Manning was also approached by both ESPN and Fox Sports to be a color commentator but declined the offers.

Data compiled by Forbes indicates Manning retired from the National Football League with $249 million worth of earnings on top of $150 million he received from his multiple commercial endorsements.

Rubin had reportedly contacted Warriors star Stephen Curry, who was raised in Charlotte and is a prominent fan of the Panthers, as well as rapper/entrepreneur Sean "Diddy" Combs, about becoming part-owners in his bidding group.

The team's owner, Jerry Richardson, put the franchise up for sale amid allegations of sexual and racial harassment.

The five-time MVP quarterback retired in 2016, ironically after his Broncos defeated the Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Tepper, a Steelers minority owner since 2009, appears to have separated himself from other finalists including Alan Kestenbaum and Ben Navarro.
