Looks like Tony Gonzalez got out at the right time indeed.

NFL officiating head Dean Blandino joined Fox Sports Radio's Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday and revealed that officials will now penalize players who dunk the goalpost with the ball following a touchdown.

"We grandfathered in some, the Lambeau Leap and things like that. But dunking will come out," Blandino said. "Using the ball as a prop or any object as a prop, whether that's the goal post, the crossbar, that will come out and that will be a foul next season."
