The son of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson says he cant imagine a better choice to buy the NFL franchise than Charleston businessman Ben Navarro.

Mark Richardson, a former team president who is part of the ownership group, met Navarro several months ago and came away impressed with the billionaire who is one of four people known to have bid on the Panthers.

Im sure there are multiple people that could be the right next owner. I personally know Ben and I know what he stands for, Richardson told the Observer on Tuesday. I know where his heart and his head is, and what his commitments are. And I cant imagine a better person being the next owner than him.

Mark Richardson said he has not spoken to his father or any of the brokers on Navarros behalf, although he has had conversations with Navarro about the sale process. The ultimate decision on the sale is up to Jerry Richardson.
