METAIRIE - Jimmy Graham says he's moving on from his newest touchdown celebration.

The New Orleans Saints' prolific tight end says people were trying to thank him "a little too much" last Sunday when he leaped into the stands after his fourth-quarter touchdown catch against San Francisco.

Graham's reception by nearby fans was caught by the FOX network's broadcast of the game. It shows one fan dressed like The Joker from "Batman" planting a hand on Graham's rear.

For the first four seasons of Graham's career, he celebrated touchdowns with a basketball-style dunk over the goal post, but the NFL banned that after one such dunk last season knocked a cross bar askew, causing a delay.

In the Saints' first home preseason game last August, Graham dunked after two TDs and was flagged both times for unsportsmanlike conduct and fined $30,000.
