1 day after discovering that Johnny Manziel has some hops we learn that the NFL is banning dunking on the goal post.  Maybe they were afraid that Jimmy Graham was going to continue being the Shaq of the NFL or maybe because they haven’t found a way to make money off it.

Graham responded to the news with a pretty amusing tweet but deleted it shortly after.

I guess I’ll have to lead the @nfl in penalties next year! – Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) March 25, 2014

The touchdown celebration on a crossbar will now result in a penalty so in honor of the banned art of dunking on a goal post we present Vernon Davis and his failed dunk attempt and more dunks from Graham.
