Saints’ Jimmy Graham, ‘I guess I’ll have to lead the @nfl in penalties next year!’ [Video]
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham played more basketball at the University of Miami than football, but he’s emerged as one of the most prolific offensive players in the NFL. His colorful touchdown celebrations have become the stuff of highlight reels, and they’re plentiful. Graham caught 16 of Drew Brees’ 39 touchdown passes in 2013.
He wasn’t the first to dunk the ball over the goalpost crossbar, but he sure does it with flair. Being 6’7″ sure doesn’t hurt. Graham bent the goalpost in the Georgia Dome during a Thursday night game last season. The NFL announced on Tuesday, the crossbar dunk will be banned in 2014. Graham expressed his displeasure on Twitter, posting photos & video of his dunks. He added, “I guess I’ll have to lead the @nfl in penalties next year!”
