Emotions are typically running high when the first whistle blows to signal the start of an NFL playoff game. For Jimmy Graham, the adrenaline was pumping more than an hour before game time on Saturday as the New Orleans Saints prepared to take on the Seattle Seahawks.
Graham got into a shouting match with several Seahawks players during pregame warmups. It seemed like the Pro Bowl tight end was upset that some of the Seahawks players were crowding his space while he was getting loose.
The dust-up apparently started when Graham smacked Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin’s hat off his head.

Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman noted that Graham then did his patented dunk on the goal posts before leaving the field. Playoff football — what’s not to love?
