New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham says that he hopes New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play this weekend.

Jimmy Graham has said that he will be "excited" to see the New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski return from back and arm surgery.

The duo have been among the top-rated tight ends in the league since both being drafted in 2010.

The New Orleans Saints player told reporters: "I don't know how we really match skills because we're obviously two different offenses and two different defenses, but I am happy for him if he's out there.

"I'll be excited. I know how it feels to want to be out there and help your team. That's hard on any player and you never wish for a player not to be playing. If he's out there playing, I'll be very happy for him.

"I've met him a couple times. He's a good guy. We've talked quite a bit. He's a fierce competitor and hopefully he'll be there Sunday."

The Patriots face the Saints this Sunday.
