Bengals CB Vernon Hargreaves penalized for taunting in Super Bowl despite being inactive
It's never good when you cost your team yardage by going onto the field in street clothes to celebrate an interception.
Cornerback Vernon Hargreaves joined his teammates in doing "The Griddy" after Cincinnati Bengals safety Jessie Bates III's interception of Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford near the end of the first half of Super Bowl 56.
Adding insult to injury, NBC's Al Michaels called out Hargreaves - among the Bengals' inactive players for the game - and added, "He may be inactive for a while after this scene."
A taunting penalty gave the Bengals the ball at their own 10 instead of the 20.
