According to Ian Rapaport, the Tampa Bay Bucanneers have traded Jonathan Casillas (pictured, left) to the Patriots, adding to the Patriots linebacker depth.

Jonathan Casillas has only played in 5 games this year for the Bucs, making 9 tackles and no sacks this season. Castillo has yet to play a whole season and had his best statistical season in 2011, posting 43 combined tackles and 3 sacks in 13 games with the New Orleans Saints in 2011.

Hopefully, this ends up being a Lagarette Blount or Aqib Talib-esque scenario for the Pats where it ends up working out great for the Patriots.
