"The biggest thing about our team is we're going to do what it takes to win, whether it's the offense stepping up or the defense or special teams play."

As the Saints prepare to head to Tampa Bay this Sunday, they're eager to see if the opening week success of their four-man pass rush becomes a two-week trend.

Richardson was among New Orleans' final cuts this preseason. Payton says he had told the veteran lineman there was a good chance he could return if the Saints needed more depth at his positions.

Sean Payton's play selection has backed up the coach's offseason pledge to restore more balance between the times the Saints run or pass.

A revamped secondary led by cornerback Darrelle Revis figures to be one of the keys to the team's chances for success when the NFC South rivals meet Sunday, however the Bucs also are hoping their sputtering offense can do its part to help contain one of the NFL's top passers.
