Jimmy Graham should tear down the goal posts as a new celebration for scoring a touchdown, according to American Ido judge and New Orleans Saints fan Harry Connick Jr.
Graham celebrated each of his league-leading 16 touchdowns last season by dunking the ball through the goal posts.
However the NFL have now banned the celebrations over safety fears - something which has left the 27-year-old aggrieved.
He tweeted soon after the announcement: "I guess I'll have to lead the @nfl in penalties next year! #funpolice"
However he may be able to avoid being fined altogether if he follows the advice of Harry Connick Jr.
Speaking in an interview with neworleanssaints.com the singer, who has sold over 28 million albums worldwide, says Graham should exploit a loophole in the new rules.
“I have a solution to that for Jimmy Graham: as opposed to dunking, I think he should just go and knock the goal post down," he said. "Because there is no rule about that.”
He added: “I think if he just rams the goal post, it doesn’t have to be hard. He doesn’t have to knock it down. If he could just slightly knock it off axis and that will give them a whole new set of things to worry about. I’m a little bit bummed about the new rule to be honest with you.”
Saints fans will hope that they get to see Graham celebrate touchdowns in whatever manner for years to come, with rumours circulating that he could soon sign a new long-term contract extension.
As it stands he will remain in New Orleans for 2014 before becoming a free agent, although head coach Sean Payton said this week that he is confident that a deal can be reached.
