Jimmy Graham dunks in Pro Bowl

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- If it were a regular-season game, New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham would be digging into his wallet in the coming days for his touchdown celebration Sunday night at the Pro Bowl.

Graham, playing for Team Irvin, caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford with 9 minutes, 51 seconds left in the second quarter. After he snagged the ball in the back-right corner of the end zone, Graham jogged down the end line and dunked over the crossbar.

He then dunked the ball over the goalpost a second time after catching a 1-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan in the fourth quarter.

"That was amazing. For me, it made the entire week," Graham told reporters. "Hopefully, one day they'll look back and change this rule so I can do it in a real game. And hopefully one day in the Super Bowl."

Graham said he had told the NFL that he wanted to do it.

"I mean, I told them I'd be gentile,'' Graham said after Team Irvin defeated Team Carter 32-28. "Hopefully they won't fine me.''

While under league rules Graham would technically be subject to a fine for dunking over the crossbar in the Pro Bowl, as he would be in the regular season, it is unclear whether the league will fine Graham.

"I hope they don't,'' Graham said. "I don't think I even nudged [the crossbar] when I did it.''

Graham's celebration was outlawed by the NFL this past offseason, categorized with other taunting penalties in which the ball is used as a "prop."

Graham took to Twitter on Monday, lobbying the NFL to change its rule on dunking over the crossbar.

The league's competition committee specifically addressed the celebration this past offseason after Graham had knocked goalposts ajar on two separate occasions.

Graham was also fined $30,000 this past August for twice dunking over the goalpost during a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.

Under the league's fine schedule for unsportsmanlike penalties, players can be fined $11,025 for their first offense and $22,050 for their second offense.
