Oh man, this is great. Just so great.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson might have just changed the game forever with how NFL players celebrate their first career touchdowns in the league.

On a four-yard reception from Gardner Minshew, the third-year player out of Southern Methodist University (SMU) scored his first TD in the Colts’ 31-20 victory over the Houston Texans in Week 2.

Normally, the player keeps the football due to it being a career milestone, usually showing it off to family and friends. However, Granson had something else in mind, something far more entertaining — and for all of us on top of that, not just his insiders.

Taking to Instagram, my man celebrated his first professional touchdown in a completely hilarious style. The tight end took his football to a photo shoot, carrying it in a blanket just like a baby and posing with the ball in an outdoor setting you usually see with the infamous baby photoshoot.

Such a classic way to celebrate your first TD, and setting a new standard while you’re at it.

I have a feeling we’re about to see this a lot more.

This is such a creative way to celebrate your first touchdown that you just know we’re going to start seeing this with other players who get their first score. Down the road, we’ll have all of these creative videos and photos of talent posing and whatever else with their milestone footballs, and quite frankly, I’m all here for that golden content.

And watch … Kylen Granson is gonna start getting touchdowns back-to-back now, having gotten that first one out of the way. (RELATED: ‘Get His A** In The Film Room’: Tom Brady Semi-Jokingly Gets After Shedeur Sanders For Flashy Lifestyle)

Take it to the bank on both.
