Saints make tender to Jonathan Casillas
By Pat Yasinskas
The New Orleans Saints have given a tender to just one of their three restricted free agents.
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas has been given the lowest tender, which is expected to be about $1.26 million. With that tender, the Saints will have the right of first refusal and can match any offer Casillas gets from another team. That tender also allows teams to get a draft pick from the same round the player was drafted in as compensation, but that doesn’t apply in this case because Casillas entered the league as an undrafted free agent.
Quarterback Chase Daniel and linebacker Ramon Humber also are free agents and the Saints have yet to issue tenders to them.
