Just hours after the big signing of Dashon Goldson, the Buccaneers made another move on Wednesday. They came to terms with former Saints linebacker Jonathan Casillas on a 1-year deal that can be worth up to $3-million. Casillas' agent, Blake Baratz, announced the agreement on Twitter. The team has not confirmed the signing.
The 25-year-old Casillas was a backup with the Saints last season and recorded 31 tackles in 14 games. The 6-1, 221-pounder didn't fit in with the Saints' new 3-4 defense. It's not know what role he will play yet under head coach Greg Schiano but he figures to compete for playing time at outside linebacker. The Bucs do have an opening at strongside LB after Quincy Black's serious neck/shoulder injury. Black's days with the Bucs and maybe the NFL could be numbered.
