Summary

The Saints decided to part ways with Junior Galette in late July after the team judged his recent transgressions to be a step too far. Galette had been involved in two high-profile allegations of violent behaviour this off-season. In a league where talent can trump reputation/past behaviour, it's not a huge surprise Galette was quickly signed by Washington. He figures to see solid playing time immediately. If he can keep his head on straight, he should provide LB4 value and form one of the better pass-rushing tandems in the NFC. (August 1)

Redskins | Junior Galette joining roster (Fri Jul 31, 12:07 PM) - Updating previous reports, free-agent LB Junior Galette (Saints) will sign a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

Our View: Washington lost Brian Orakpo in free agency, although injuries had kept Orakpo from having a huge impact lately. Galette is instantly the second-best edge rusher on the roster and should help the Washington pass defense. He signed a league minimum deal, which he can afford to after getting 20+ million guaranteed from the Saints last year.

Redskins | Junior Galette to visit 'Skins (Thu Jul 30, 01:10 AM) - Free-agent LB Junior Galette (Saints) will visit the Washington Redskins Thursday, July 30. He will take a physical and meet with team officials.

Our View: Released by the Saints last week, Galette could draw some interest from other teams even though he's had trouble off the field. Washington is looking for a pass-rusher to use opposite of Ryan Kerrigan, and coming off a 10-sack season Galette could be that guy.

Saints | Junior Galette officially released (Mon Jul 27, 05:25 PM) - Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette was officially released Monday, July 27.

Our View: Galette was reportedly part of the chemistry problems the Saints had on defense last year. He led the team in sacks last year, but the off-field incidents proved to be the last straw. Galette suffered a severe pectoral injury at minicamp, and his status for Week 1 is unknown.

Saints | Junior Galette released (Fri Jul 24, 02:23 PM) - New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette was released Friday, July 24, according to a source.

Our View: Galette's off-field incidents proved to be too much for Sean Payton. He suffered a pectoral incident earlier this year in minicamp, and his status for Week 1 is in question. The Saints will turn to Anthony Spencer with Galette now bounced off the team.
