Panthers owner-for-a-few-more-hours Jerry Richardson is expected to make an
appearance today.

Disgraced by recent allegations of workplace misconduct Jason
Sanders Jersey
, Richardson hasn’t been spotted during the sale of
his team to David Tepper, but he’s kept a low profile in recent years

Accoording to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he’s scheduled to聽address the
owners one final time before they vote to approve the sale at their meeting in

The 81-year-old Richardson was once one of the most powerful owners in the
league, a close confidante (if not patron) of commissioner Roger Goodell. But he
was on the wrong side of the league’s efforts to get back to Los Angeles.

He was pushing for a joint stadium in Carson for the Chargers and

bigger new-money deals in Inglewood by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, and eventually
the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas.

Losing that power struggle to a new guard of owners was part of the reason,
along with his health, that he backed away from most league business in recent

, and only showed up at the May meeting in 2016 because it
was in Charlotte, as he had skipped league business for most of the last five

Richardson had a heart transplant in February 2009. He’s about to pocket $2.2
billion in cash as part of Tepper’s bid. At some point after that, the league
will likely wrap up its investigation into the activity that triggered the sale,
which included allegations of sexual and racial harassment.

Hanna was placed on the reserve/retired list by the Cowboys on Friday after
six years with the team. The 28-year-old played 78 games over five
seasons D.J. Fluker
, finishing with 37 catches for 374 yards and one

The knee issue kept Hanna out all of 2016, but he played all 16 games last
season. A sixth-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2012, Hanna was primarily a
blocking tight end and special teams player.

Jason Witten is returning for his 16th season. The backup tight ends include
Geoff Swaim, Blake Jarwin and former Baylor basketball player Rico
