NFL will allow some TD celebrations this season

A recent study commissioned by the NFL has revealed unexpected findings: having fun is good and fans like it. 

The league announced Tuesday that it’s relaxing the rules for touchdown celebrations a bit. Players are now allowed to use the ball as a prop, celebrate in groups and go down to the ground. The use of other props—like Ezekiel Elliott’s Salvation Army kettle and Antonio Brown’s goal post—is still a no-go, as are celebrations that mimic sex and violence.

Still, plenty of celebrations that drew flags in the past are now perfectly legal. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
