Free-agent DE Leonard Little will visit the Saints on Wednesday and Thursday, according to a league source.
Little played 12 seasons with the Rams and won a Super Bowl with the team during the 1999 season. Some believed Little would retire after the 2009 season, but he recently expressed a desire to keep playing.
The Saints have a need at defensive end after they released veteran Charles Grant last week. They also will visit with former Chargers DT Jamal Williams and ex-Rams DE James Hall this week, according to a league source.
