New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was fined $30,000 for a pair of illegal dunks over the goal post last week against the Tennessee Titans.

"It's unfortunate because I just love the game," Graham said earlier this week. "I have a lot of passion for the game. And when I go out there on Sunday, it's fun for me. And I feel like a little kid out there, and sometimes I act like it."

Graham was criticized by coach Sean Payton for his choice to dunk.

Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson says he won't be dunking this year.

"I'm not letting [NFL commissioner Roger] Goodell get in my pockets," Johnson said.
