Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson recently caused controversy when he told #1 draft pick Cam Newton that he is forbidden from having tattoos or earrings.

“I said, ‘Do you have any tattoos?’” Richardson recalled of his first meeting with the Auburn product. “He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘Do you have any piercings?’ He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘We want to keep it that way.’

“We want to keep no tattoos, no piercings, and I think you’ve got a very nice haircut,” he added.

While Richardson has signed players with both, he hopes that the #1 pick becomes the face of the franchise without any of that on his body.
