The Saints had hoped to add a defensive tackle in free agency -- they wanted Seth Payne of the Texans -- but now it looks like they will be forced to lean on third-year player Jonathan Sullivan. The staff has heard good things from Sullivan in terms of his motivation to get in shape. A year ago, Sullivan came to camp woefully out of condition and never became a factor. At some point this offseason, Saints coach Jim Haslett showed Sullivan a tape of himself playing at Georgia and asked him what the difference was between that guy and the one who was with the Saints last year. Sullivan told him he was lighter. So Haslett told him to get to that weight. Sullivan told him he wasn't sure he could. But now it looks as if the light has gone off, and Sullivan is willing to get there. If he can revert to his Georgia form, he will be a force in the middle, and the Saints will have a heck of a defensive line with Sullivan and Brian Young inside and Will Smith and Charles Grant on the ends. The Saints are still interested in trading end Darren Howard, who signed his franchise tender this week, but so far have not received the right offer.
