Miami Gardens, Fla. -- Jay Richardson got to skip a few of these fourth preseason games earlier in his career, when he was a starter for the Oakland Raiders. But the 29-year-old New Orleans Saints linebacker is well aware his circumstances have changed now that he's trying to crack back into the NFL after a two-year absence.

And he made the most of his final opportunity Thursday with two sacks in a 24-21 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

"Sure, I sat out a few fourth preseason games. But you've got to know your situation," Richardson said. "I know the position I'm in. So you've got to go to work."

Richardson said he feels "solid" about everything he was able to accomplish this summer, as he consistently stood out for the Saints despite switching from defensive end to linebacker two weeks into training camp.

"I worked my butt off," Richardson said. "I competed at defensive end, switched positions, competed at linebacker, and gave it my best shot. I thought I played pretty solid through the preseason, so I can live with what I did.

"I'm definitely hoping I proved myself relevant and worth my salt. You know, I know I can hold my own in this league. So I'm hoping there's a chance here for me."

Definitely put himself in with a chance and has some added versatility. I like what I saw.

He may have cost a youngster a roster spot. I think we may try to sneak Rufus onto the PS now.

Its risky but I guess these are good problems to have.

Really like the way this guy has played. He's quick for his size and big enough to move down to the line if needed.

I sure would hate to lose a young player for someone who may or may not be here next year.

There is a lot to be said for experience. With the inj bug biting like a mother into our defensive players I feel better with some experience

Wish nothing but success for him, but I'd rather we draft/acquire rookie defensive talent and develop; sure would like to get exit interviews of Eric Martin and Chase Thomas...

As brilliant as we are on offense, we are conversely bone-headed on defense...

The only right move was moving to a 34 defense...

Look like they're sold on Parys Haralson, Richardson had all that pt to sale himself to another team since him and Rufus Johnson was let go
