Billionaires David Tepper, Ben Navarro, Felix Sabates and Frank and Lorenzo Feritta are all reportedly interested in becoming owners of the Carolina team. Steph Curry, Sean Combs and Colin Kaepernick have also reportedly been interested in getting in on the action.

Under the NFL rules, as many as 25 people can own a team, as long as one of those people owns 30 percent of the team, which would put that price tag at $690 million or more.

Longtime owner Jerry Richardson put the team up for sale in December following allegations of workplace misconduct. A Sports Illustrated piece reported that the team made multiple payouts for alleged sexual harassment comments and the use of a racial slur.
