Saints TE Graham says he will not jump in the stands anymore after getting groped by fan
Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints is one of the best tight ends in the NFL, but the NFL has made it hard for him to celebrate. Graham, whose favored goal-post dunks were ruled illegal by the NFL this year, attempted his version of the “Superdome Leap” after a touchdown this past Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. But when asked Friday if he plans to make a habit of it, Graham said, “That’ll probably be my last one after getting groped up.”
“I just wanted to go and thank all the fans for being there,” Graham said. “But people were trying to thank me a little too much.”
The New Orleans Advocate tracked down the guilty party who groped fan Scott McGowan, who explained that he went for the backside grab because it was all he could grab.
“I went for what I could grab. Everything else was taken, so I took what I could get.”
I guess it kind of made Jimmy Graham a little insensitive, I would be spooked too if I was groped by Joker…
