Jonathan Casillas made the most of his short stay with the New England Patriots, winning his second Super Bowl after 13 weeks with the organization.

But now, the New Jersey native is heading home after signing a three-year, $10.5 million deal with the New York Giants, according Adam Caplan and Dan Graziano of ESPN.

The Patriots acquired Casillas at the trade deadline in October, swapping a fifth-round pick in exchange for a Tampa Bay Buccaneers sixth-round pick.

From then on, the 27-year-old linebacker appeared in a total of 11 games for New England, starting three. He notched 31 tackles and a forced fumble while also carving a core role on special teams.

Casillas will reportedly join former Patriots halfback Shane Vereen with the Giants.
