NFL Free Agency 2013: LB Casillas Signs With Buccaneers

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.

Another backup for the Saints has hit the bricks, this time from the defensive side of the ball, as unrestricted free agent linebacker Jonathan Casillas has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Larry Holder had the story on nola.com a couple of hours ago, following tweets from Adam Schefter and Scott Shanle...



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?
