The Saints are still looking for players to fill roles on their defensive line, but the free-agent pickings are getting slim. New Orleans showed interest in DT Maake Kemoeatu before he signed with the Redskins and had a meeting scheduled with DT Jamal Williams before he inked a deal with the Broncos. DE Leonard Little visited the Saints Thursday, according to reports, and is being considered for a job as a pass-rush specialist. Little, 35, made 6½ sacks in 13 games last season for the Rams. It's not clear whether New Orleans is still looking to add a run stuffer in the mold of Kemoeatu and Williams, but the club needs to add depth on the D-line. The Saints cut Charles Grant, who started all 16 regular-season games before tearing his triceps in Week 17 last season, and would like to find a tackle to share snaps with RFA Remi Ayodele, who received a low tender.
