Shutdown Corner - NFL

Celebrating after touchdowns is so passé. If Brian Orakpo(notes) is any bellwether, the new trend hitting the NFL will be false start penalty celebrations.

The Washington Redskins linebacker was so excited about baiting an Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman into a false start that he high-stepped, pointed, did a little dance, tried to give the referee a pat on the butt and then calmly handed the official back his flag.

I can only imagine how Orakpo would react if officials ever called a holding penalty on a lineman trying to block him.
