Even with some thinking the value of sports teams is about to skyrocket with the addition of potential gambling revenues, the sale of the Panthers is proceeding as planned. The sale of the team needs approval from 3/4 of the league's owners, who are set to meet in Atlanta on May 22.

The search for the team's new owner has taken more than five months. The announcement came shortly after an article in Sports Illustrated linked him to allegations of sexual harassment.

His investment is now worth $122.5 million, based on the current valuation of the Steelers ($2.45 billion, per Forbes). "They remind me of my original hometown, Pittsburgh", Tepper told the Observer in April.
