  • Junior Galette LB - WAS Galette (chest) has agreed to a one-year... 12:26 pm   7/31/15

    Galette (chest) has agreed to a one-year contract with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Impacts: Galette, who signed a four-year, $41.5 million extension last offseason, was recently released by the Saints after a tape emerged that allegedly showed him hitting a woman with a belt during a fight on a beach. He was also arrested in January for unrelated domestic violence accusations, although the charges were ultimately dropped. The videotape might have been a career-ending incident for a lesser player, but the Redskins are betting that Galette's talent will outweigh any public relations backlash. Coming off back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks, Galette also suffered a pectoral injury during his extremely eventful offseason. Assuming he makes it back to full health for Week 1, he'll likely hold down the starting spot at outside linebacker across from Ryan Kerrigan. Prior to Galette's signing, second-round rookie Preston Smith was expected to compete with 2014 second-rounder Trent Murphy for the starting job.
