Glory days (vs. the Bears in 2011), well they passed you by. - Chris Graythen
Saints backup linebacker Jonathan Casillas has signed a one-year deal with the NFC South rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Larry Holder had the story on nola.com a couple of hours ago, following tweets from Adam Schefter and Scott Shanle...
LB Jonathan Casillas reached agreement on a one-year deal worth up to $3 million with Bucs, per his agent @blakebaratz.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013

Here's what Holder had in HIS STORY besides the aforementioned tweeted info:
Casillas spent the last four seasons with the Saints, but probably wasn't going to be a good fit with New Orleans' new 3-4 defensive scheme. Casillas tallied 31 total tackles in 14 games last season as a backup linebacker.
So, do we mourn the loss of a backup linebacker who barely produced for the defense that gave up THE MOST YARDS IN A SEASON IN NFL HISTORY?
Or, do we shrug our shoulders and move on?
I'm leaning towards the latter, but what's your take on it?
