Kristian: Casillas leaving no big deal

Kristian@wwl.com - Let’s get you caught up on the latest on the Saints in free agency:  

Saints free agent linebacker Jonathan Casillas agreed to a four-year deal with Tampa.  Casillas came to the Black and Gold as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2009.  This is not a significant loss, as Casillas flashed potential but was banged up in his time with New Orleans.  They can find another un-drafted free agent to replace him.

Free agent cornerback Keenan Lewis visited with the Saints on Wednesday.  On Thursday the team will visit with another free agent defensive back, Derek Cox.  Both are four-year veterans with plenty of upside. Lewis prepped at O.P Walker High School and is New Orleans Native. 

My source tells me the Saints really like Lewis.  Cox had four interceptions last season with Jacksonville.

Derek Cox signed with the Chargers yesterday...
Derek Cox won't be making his trip to the Big Easy, he signed with San Diego yesterday. Here's hoping we can get Keenan Lewis and Bernard Pollard, who may not be on the Saints' radar, but we need a good playmaker in the secondary.

The Saints Sounds They're Just Window Shopping Right Now...
With so many needs and the limited cap space we have right now, sounds like we can't be very aggressive in free agency this year. Personally, I would like to see us bag Ricky Jean-Francois, Victor Butler, Connor Barwin, Keenan Lewis, and Bernard Pollard. However, I highly doubt we could get two of these names, if not just one. Trying to remain optimistic here, but it may be a few seasons of rebuilding the D before we're the complete team that will dominate and win another Super Bowl.
