Vernon Davis Touchdown Celebration Fail: 49ers TE Has Dunk Blocked By Crossbar (VIDEO)

Coming out of the University of Maryland in 2006, Vernon Davis turned in one of the most impressive performances at the NFL scouting combine. He was a physical marvel. He was fast. He was strong. And he could jump.

Based on this botched touchdown celebration, the 49ers tight end might not possess quite the same athleticism that he exhibited back then, especially when it comes to his vertical leap.

After catching a 4-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to put the 49ers up 22-7 in the third quarter, Davis went to "dunk" the ball over the crossbar at Lambeau. But the bar went all Mutumbo on Davis, rejecting him to the delight of the Packers fans, who hadn't been given a ton to cheer about to that point.
