RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Casillas put up solid numbers last year, but with the addition of David Hawthorne and Curtis Lofton via free agency, je is expected to serve as a backup outside linebacker.
After being announced the starting outside linebacker based on his preseason performance, Casillas missing the entire 2010 season with a foot injury suffered before the season began. Casillas is a bit undersized but possesses elite speed for a linebacker. Casillas has stated that he will be 100% by training camp, but there will almost certainly be an open competition for the starting spot. If Casillas can regain the form he displayed last preseason and earn the starting gig, he could be a major sleeper in IDP leagues.
Casillas will compete for the starting outside linebacker position vacated by Scott Fujita. The coaching staff has praised Casillas for his play and he even started a few games last year n Fujita's absence. He will likely compete with o-Lon Dunbar and the winner of the starting gig will have the opportunity to post decent numbers given defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' attacking schemes.
Casillas is in competition for a roster spot at one of the Saints outside linebacker positions.
