David Tepper, a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, is expected to sign a deal Tuesday to buy the Carolina Panthers, according to a report from ESPN.

Tepper, 60, would have to sell his 5 percent stake in the Steelers before completing the purchase of the Panthers.

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson put the team up for sale shortly after sexual harassment allegations were published by Sports Illustrated in December.
