During his nine-year NFL career, Casey has played at least 14 games in each season including all 16 games in five. He’s recorded at least 44 total tackles from the interior of the defensive line in every season as well, and has multiple sacks in every year. Casey’s best season certainly came in 2013 when he brought down 10.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery en route to earning All-Pro second-team honors.
He played for USC from 2008 to 2010, being selected in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Titans. He was an All-Pac-10 honorable mention in 2009 and a First-Team All-Pac-10 player during the 2010 season. He recorded 59 solo tackles during his three-year career and brought down nine sacks as well as an interception during his final year with the Trojans.
Casey is headed to Denver for a seventh-round draft pick after missing just four regular-season games in his career.
