Curry is known for being a Panthers fan. He was selected by the Panthers to be the team's "Keep Pounding" drummer prior to Super Bowl 50 in 2016.

Whether the former Charlotte Christian standout is serious about purchasing a piece of the Panthers remains to be seen.

The Panthers are worth $2.3 billion, according to Forbes. In 1993, Richardson and a group of investors paid $206 million to create the franchise.
