Goodell Chats with Panthers Owner Richardson reports that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson talked to NFL Commish Roger Goodell the other morning:

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell visited Charlotte on Tuesday and spoke at the Bronko Nagurski Charlotte Touchdown Club luncheon. But his most important talk occurred Tuesday morning when he met for about an hour with Carolina Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson, who is at home recovering from heart transplant surgery on February 1. “We had a great visit,” Goodell said. “He is making great progress. He is grateful for your prayers and support. That means a great deal to him. He’s important to the NFL and his family is important to the NFL. I know the Big Cat will be roaring soon.” Goodell’s relationship with Richardson goes back more than 20 years when Goodell worked closely for the league on the expansion process that awarded Richardson and the Carolinas a franchise in 1993.
