New Panthers owner David Tepper fires team attorney

Richard Thigpen In an unsurprising move , new owner David Tepper has decided to part ways with a longstanding member of the Panthers staff. Team attorney Richard Thigpen has been relieved of his duties as reported earlier by Darin Gantt at Pro Football Talk.Thigpen had been with the team for over 20 years,and there may have been another reason behind the firing besides Tepper wanting “his people.” It’s entirely possible that Tepper is trying to steer the organization away from Jerry Richardson’s legacy, as Thigpen becomes the second member from Richardson’s regime to leave the Panthers since the sale was finalized. (Former COO Tina Becker resigned on Monday.) Thigpen oversaw the now infamous non disclosure agreements with multiple former employees who alleged workplace misconduct against Richardson. It has since come to light that those former employees were the victims of racial and sexual workplace misconduct, which directly led to the sale of the Panthers. So far in his short tenure as Panthers owner Cheap Ian Thomas Jersey , David Tepper has seemingly distanced himself from Jerry Richardson at every opportunity that would not affect football operations. I would expect similar changes to be in the works as well, as Tepper continues to clean up the organization. The Panthers have issued today’s injury report for their Week 5 game against the Giants, and it’s pretty much the same as yesterday’s report—Trai Turner and Curtis Samuel were both on the practice field for the Panthers again, which is good news in my opinion. According to an early report from Bill Voth Mike Adams Jersey , no one was on the “do not practice” list today.Greg Olsen is hopeful that he will be back next week for the Panthers’ trip to Washington, but he has been ruled out for this Sunday’s game against the Giants. Still, the fact that it’s even a consideration that he will be ready to go next week is a victory in and of itself. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming days on Olsen, as we’ll have more information on that whenever it becomes available.Here’s the full injury report for the Panthers:Panthers injury reportDid not participate in practiceNoneLimited participation in practiceTE Greg Olsen (foot)Full participation in practiceDT Vernon Butler (shoulder)WR Damiere Byrd (knee)DE Julius Peppers (rest)WR Curtis Samuel (medical illness)G Trai Turner (concussion)Practice StatusDid not participate in practice = 0% of a player’s normal repetitionsLimited participation in practice = Less than 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsFull participation in practice = 100% of a player’s normal repetitionsGame StatusOut = Player will not playDoubtful = Player unlikely to playQuestionable = Uncertain if player will play
