First and 10: Debating Newton’s appearance

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson asked quarterback Cam Newton not to get any tattoos or piercings while he is a Carolina Panther. Should teams be able to restrict players from getting tattoos or piercings? We asked our experts in the latest Instant Debate, and their answers will appear on NFL.com later today.

Here’s what else is on tap for Thursday:

  • Perhaps getting nervous about Peyton Manning‘s readiness to play in the regular-season opener, the Indianapolis Colts have signed veteran Kerry Collins, and star receiver Reggie Wayne sounds none too pleased.
  • The Tim Tebow controversy just won’t go away. The latest figure to take a shot the Broncos’ backup is former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, who tells NFL.com that he’s OK with Tebow as a potential son-in-law, but not as an NFL quarterback.
  • NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan has concluded his tour of NFL training camps. Find out which teams look ready for a Super Bowl run, and which ones look like also-rans.
  • Seattle WR Mike Williams talks about his amazing comeback last season after being out of football for two years, and discusses the new-look Seahawks, in our “Cover Two Podcast.”
  • Hear from Chicago Bears LB Brian Urlacher on the state of the defending NFC North champs, plus live press conferences Thursday from the Patriots’ Bill Belichick, the Cowboys’ Jason Garrett and the Steelers’ Mike Tomlin, on NFL Network.
