Your silly rules and regulations won't stop Jimmy Graham from doing whatever the hell he wants to do after he scores.

That's because the Saints tight end, despite the ban on dunking footballs over the goalposts, did it twice Friday in New Orleans' 31-24 preseason win vs. the Titans on Friday. Not once, but twice.

The first time, he had just caught a touchdown pass from Luke McCown when he ran to the post and dunked it with authority. He immediately was hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Which led to this response from his coach.

Then, later in the second quarter, Graham did it again. Touchdown catch, dunk, 15-yard penalty.

Which peeved Payton.

"Yes, I was. I'm very upset. Would you be upset? I was, particularly," Payton told reporters after the game, via NOLA.com.

Either way, I'm looking forward to watching Graham star in the sequel to this Key & Peele excessive celebration sketch.
