Tepper Under Contract To Keep Statue Of Richardson

David Pepper maybe the new Panthers Owner but the face of former owner Jerry Richardson will live on for thousands of fans.

The 13 foot statue of Richardson will remain outside of Bank of American Stadium. During a press conference Tuesday Tepper said, keeping the statue in place was part of the deal when he purchased the team. Fans have expressed their desire on social media to remove the statue that was built in 2016. Richardson was pushed out of the ownership role following allegations of workplace misconduct and sexual harassment.
