Not surprising...

In what's becoming a familiar tone this offseason for New Orleans Saints unrestricted free agents, linebacker Jonathan Casillas said late Thursday night he hasn't talked with the team at all about a new contract.

"I haven't had any contact with the Saints this offseason," Casillas said via e-mail. "I would love to stay with New Orleans, it's been my home for the last four years. But I do know how this league works, and I'm excited about free agency and where I could possibly end up."

Yeah, he's not going to be here sadly, but hopefully he lands with another team and has some success.

Good Luck Sir.

The Saints' soon-to-be UFAs include:

Bushrod
Casillas
Daniel
Ellis
Henderson
Humber
Mack
McBride
Robinson
Roby
Shanle

Have there been any reports that the Saints are negotiating with ANY of these guys? I know I haven't seen anything...:idunno:

Another former SR.com backup beast that never really panned out.

Good blitzer though.

I mean maybe WILB? But we're likely to keep Vilma and I imagine that's where Hawthorne ends up as well. No real place.

Size and coverage ability he fits but as far as instincts hes lacking. With Vilma and Hawthorne there ud probably be relegating him to special teams@that point.

Yeah I meaning you're talking a 5th ILB, which I doubt we even carry, you're going to go with some UDFA or draft pick on a cheap rookie minimum/near minimum deal that'll at least have the small chance of a higher ceiling.

Its all part of how the cap works. Keeping them here at league minimum really isnt fair to most of them, and paying them more to stay isnt going to fit our cap structure.

I am thankful they played for us, and I wish them luck with what happens next.

The only one on that list that I think we might get back is Roby, maybe Mack too.

Casillas doesn't fit the mold....I only see Bushrod, Daniel and Mack coming back out of the UFA we have.
