Casillas Wins Starting Weak-Side LB Spot

Pro Football Weekly reports that LB Jonathan Casillas has won the starting weak-side LB spot:

One of the surprise developments in Saints training camp has been the rise of LB Jonathan Casillas, who is the new starting weak-side ‘backer. After the first preseason game New Orleans decided to move longtime WLB Scott Shanle to the strong side to clear a spot for Casillas, who made 20 tackles in 11 games last season as a rookie. The Saints were expecting fifth-year veteran Clint Ingram to compete for the starting job on the strong side, but he’s still on the PUP list recovering from knee surgery, and Casillas has had a solid camp.
