The veteran defensive end, who sat out last season because of a torn Achilles tendon, has agreed to a one-year deal that could worth as much as $4.1 million, a source told NFL Media's Albert Breer on Tuesday.
Galette signed with the Redskins last August after being released by the New Orleans Saints last summer. He was suspended two games last year for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy after he was arrested following an alleged domestic violence incident at his home in Louisiana in January 2015. The charges were later dismissed and he served his suspension while on injured reserve.
Other free-agency tidbits we're tracking on this Tuesday:
Carroll picked off a pair of passes last season before going down on Thanksgiving with the leg injury. Happy to return to Philly, the seventh-year defender has a legitimate shot to regain his starting job this autumn.
"I just fell in love with how the city is and how the fans are, how the organization is," Carroll said last month, per CSN Philly. "Everybody is welcoming. Everybody loves each other. That's something you don't see in a lot of organizations and a lot of people."
