Jonathan Casillas (born June 3, 1987 in New Brunswick, New Jersey) is a NFL linebacker for the New Orleans Saints. He went undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft, but was later signed as a free agent. He played high school football at New Brunswick High School and college football at Wisconsin.

In Super Bowl XLIV, he was officially credited with recovering a third-quarter onside kick for the Saints en route to their 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Casillas was expected to take over as the Saints' starting weakside linebacker for the 2010 season. However, he suffered a foot injury during the last game of the preseason, and he was placed on the injured reserve list, ending his 2010 season.
