METAIRIE — Fan favorite Junior Galette has carved a niche for himself since making the Super Bowl XLIV champion New Orleans Saints as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2010.

He is quick, agile and possesses an instinctive ability to come hard off the edge, collecting a career-best 41/2 sacks in a reserve role last season. But there is more to his position in a four-man defensive front than rushing the passer.

“I told Junior, ‘You don’t want to be considered just a pass rusher, you want to be considered a ‘defensive end,’ ” Saints defensive line coach Bill Johnson said after a recent training camp practice. “When he got here he couldn’t go on the field and win by using just his athletic ability. He’s had to learn some football. He’s had to learn offenses, protections and backfield sets.

“After going back and looking at last season’s cutups, I thought Junior did some very good things and was very effective and probably played a little better than I thought. He’s already an effective player who can get better because he has the ability. He just needs to keep working on all the run techniques and all those other things. So that’s where he’s at right now.”

Translated, that means Galette remains a work in progress, a player with untapped potential, a player who, in time, could become a full-time starter, or, at least, play a more prominent role in the Saints’ defensive line rotation.
