The Carolina Panthers have been rumored to be one of the teams that the city of Los Angeles is trying to lure to southern California. Reportedly they even offered $1.25 billion to owner Jerry Richardson, but he turned the deal down.

Last year amidst rumors that SoCal was courting Richardson and the Panthers, Richardson remained steady in his dedication to Carolina.

“It has always been my desire that the Carolinas would be the home of our Panthers. Nothing has changed. As someone who was born in North Carolina and lived much of my life in South Carolina, I hope that there would be no doubts about my personal devotion to the Carolinas,” Richardson said, via ESPN.
