Jimmy Graham flagged by ref for dunking during scrimmage
In March, the NFL announced that they would take more fun out of the game by penalizing those players who celebrate a touchdown by dunking the ball through the goal posts. New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham may be the player who is penalized the most by this new rule.
Hoping to abide by the new rules, during today’s black and gold scrimmage, the referees flagged Graham for dunking the ball following a touchdown.

Accordingly, the fans in attendance boo’d the referee.
I have a feeling Graham will still be dunking the ball throughout the season and the Saints will be dealing with the consequences.
