Casillas is having a great camp and is the Giants best linebacker at this point, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

He's fast and has coverage skills the rest of the corps lacks. He'll start on the weak side where he has a chance to rack up tackles as well as plays in the passing game.

Casillas had two tackles, two passes defended and an interception in Friday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

He's the favorite for the team's starting middle linebacker job and could see a heavy snap count due to his coverage abilities.

Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, the Giants' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he's available to the Giants' linebacking corps, Casillas will likely yield most of the reps on the strong side to Devon Kennard (hamstring). Either way, Casillas holds little sway in IDP leagues with 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack on his ledger to date.

Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

With Uani Unga (neck) also listed as questionable, the Giants may have reduced depth at linebacker. It isn't a major concern, especially with starter Devon Kennard (hamstring) expected to return from a two-game absence.

Casillas agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Giants on Tuesday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Casillas will head to New York after playing last season for both the Buccaneers and Patriots. Casillas made just 37 tackles (24 solo) in 13 total games, but the size of his contract hints at him having a chance at a more expanded role with the Giants.

The Buccaneers traded Casillas and a 2015 sixth-round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round pick on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Casillas lost playing time to Danny Lansanah of late, so the Buccaneers decided to send him to New England and move up a few spots in the draft. Casillas will likely slot in as a special teams player for the Patriots off the bat.

Casillas (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Vikings, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Casillas is logging a second DNP in a row, but with nary a contribution to the game long since Week 3, he isn't a suitable IDP option at the moment.

Casillas (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.

Casillas was a limited practice participant all week, so he should have a decent chance of suiting up. Even if he does, though, he's unlikely to be more than a rotational linebacker.
