In an article from Pro Football Talk today, Darin Gantt reported that if Panthers owner Jerry Richardson were to be interested in selling the team he may already have a potential buyer lined up. The buyer is none other than Bruton Smith, the NASCAR magnate with ties to the Charlotte area. In a radio interview today, Smith said: "Do you think he’s interested in selling? ... I have not approached him. If the price is right, yeah, I’d be interested." And, in an apparent jab at Richardson, Smith said he: "would commit to the city, and I would not ask them for any money... So let's get this straight because it's important: Bruton Smith wants to buy the Panthers, and he would be such a good guy about it that he wouldn't ask the city for a single cent when doing it. Well, isn't that a nice gesture? I mean, he's always been such a great citizen who's always willing to keep local businesses strong by ensuring money constantly flows into the city of Charlotte and her surrounding areas.
Could the Panthers already have an interested buyer?
