It's no secret that the new starters on Atlanta's offensive line, especially right tackle Lamar Holmes, will be targeted by the Saints in Sunday's opening game.

"Me and Drew, catching those balls. ... It was like: I'm back, you know?"

The New Orleans Saints brought back receiver Robert Meachem, shortly after his release by the San Diego Chargers, then later Tuesday placed linebacker Jonathan Vilma on injured reserve, designated to return this season.

"The offense showed balance and the ability to throw it. We threw for 250 (251) and rushed for 200 (197). That's what we needed to see."

Saints coach Sean Payton seems likely to open the regular season by throwing a dose of youth and inexperience at the visiting Atlanta Falcons.
