The Buccaneers have agreed to terms on a new one-year contract with linebacker Jonathan Casillas, according to Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com (Twitter link). Casillas had been eligible for unrestricted free agency next week.
Casillas, 26, joined the Bucs last season after spending the first three seasons of his NFL career in New Orleans. The Wisconsin alum appeared in the team’s first 12 games, playing a total of 199 defensive snaps, before heading to injured reserve with a knee issue. Casillas was also a contributor on special teams, racking up 11 tackles on return plays.
