Tight end Jimmy Graham is entering his final year of his rookie contract with the New Orleans Saints, but he says he's not even thinking about that. 

What's on his mind now is playing for a team that is whole again. No more talk of bountygate. No more talk of Sean Payton's suspension. And no more talk of Drew Brees holding out for a bigger payday. 

Graham, the first TE in Saints history to have over 1,000 yards receiving, has high expectations for 2013. 

He's got his quarterback for an entire offseason (Brees held out last year), and head coach Sean Payton has finally returned after his one-year bountygate-related suspension.

The Saints and their fans want to forget the past. Last year, they went 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. 

Check out the video above as Graham talks about starting new in 2013 with Sean Payton at the helm.  

Let us know in the comments below how you think New Orleans will do in 2013.
