Saints Agree To Terms With LB Junior Galette On Three-Year Contract

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis has announced that the club has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with restricted free agent LB Junior Galette

Saints Agree To Terms With LB Junior Galette On Three-Year Contract

Saints re-signed OLB Junior Galette to a three-year contract.
Galette is viewed internally as a likely starter at rush 'backer in new coordinator Rob Ryan's 3-4. 25 years old and built to rush from a two-point stance at 6-foot-2, 258, Galette posted a career-high five sacks in 2012, operating mostly as a nickel end. He now has a chance to be an every-down player. The Saints' other OLB position will be up for grabs, with Martez Wilson as the leading in-house candidate. Victor Butler would be an intriguing free-agent pickup.

Interesting.
I wonder if the coaches see him as the starting OLB
Agreed somebody has to be off soon.I guessing Smith.
Cutting Harper doesnt clear much cap does it?
I think Vilma is more likely to restructure.

Actually it does. Since we can spread his 3.5 dead money over two seasons, we can save 3.75 million this year, but we're still on the hook for 1.75 mill next year.

With all the FA safeties out there its a could bargaining tool.Restructure/slash wages or go.I wouldn't be against cutting all thee if we can get the right replacements in.

I'm a bit surprised by this move, but the staff obviously knows Galette's strengths and weaknesses a whole lot better than I do, so I trust that they know what they're doing.

I guess Ryan likes Galette and how he'll fit into his scheme..?

Congrats Junior!! That dude's gonna flourish as a situational pass-rusher in the new 3-4. The thing is though, with the deals we've made with our restricted free agents we've put ourselves a couple of million over the salary cap again when we were right there at the cap. I'm expecting some big news regarding Smith, Vilma and Harper any minute now.

According to USA Today (with an amazingly ugly -even for him- picture of JJ) we're still 6.6 over. I'll wait for Danno or Fin to confirm. One of those guys gone should clear us (?) and three would allow us to buy some 3-4 talent. I'm looking forward to seeing Junior out there next season.

Love it!

Coaching staff obviously see him as our possible pass rushing OLB in the 3-4
