Saints' Jimmy Graham: 'You can't really have fun anymore' in NFL

Tuesday August 26th, 2014

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said "you can't really have fun anymore" in the NFL, the Associated Press reports.

Graham was fined $30,000 for celebrating a pair of touchdowns by dunking over the goalposts during the preseason. The NFL banned players from dunking over the goalposts during the offseason.

The tight end said earlier this month he will need to come up with a new touchdown celebration.

Graham, 27, signed a four-year contract with the Saints after an arbitrator ruled he should be considered a tight end instead of a wide receiver during contract negotiations. He finished last season with 1,215 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns for New Orleans.

Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said he will no longer dunk over the goalposts because he does not want to be fined.
