Graham fined 30K for preseason goal post dunks

The Saints arrive in Indianapolis Friday night to get ready for tomorrow's preseason matchup with the Colts.

Tight end Jimmy Graham is making the trip $30,000 lighter in the wallet after the NFL fined him for his pair of goal post dunks last week against the Titans.

It has been his signature move since he began his professional career with the black and gold in 2010. But this offseason, the NFL determined that the move constituted "excessive celebration." Graham was flagged twice last week for 30 yards.

While fans love the goal post dunks, coach Sean Payton said he was very upset about all the penalties against Tennessee. Graham said earlier this week that he will not do anything to hurt the team. Last fall, one of Graham's dunks in Atlanta bent the crossbar and delayed the game for more than 20 minutes.
