Wonder what Mark Sanchez's touchdown dance will look like?
Of course, you don't.
But you can get a sneak peek anyway of how Sanchez and several other rookies would celebrate in the end zone if given the chance to get kooky without fear of a penalty flag.
The Upper Deck Company held its annual rookie photo shoot May 16 in Los Angeles Coliseum and recently posted behind-the-scenes video. Thirty-four rookies, including Miami Dolphins quarterback Pat White and Jets running back Shonn Greene, posed for their first NFL trading cards.
Upper Deck staged a contest to see who could come up with the best touchdown dance. The winner received a $1,700 Upper Deck Authenticated autographed Michael Jordan jersey.
"Breaking the Law" by Judas Priest might as well have been playing in the background because almost every one of the celebrations would be illegal if done in a game.
Sanchez's attempt, an unoriginal slam dunk over the crossbar, would have been OK.
I won't spoil the drama by revealing the winner, but my personal favorite was New York Giants running back Andre Brown.
The lamest attempts were turned in by Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Stephen McGee and Seattle Seahawks linebacker Aaron Curry.
