I really thought this visit was going to happen last week, but I'm sure they're just playing it smart and getting a feel for his market value. I'm hopeful that he signs as well. This is a guy who is entering what should be his prime, if there really is more to his game than being a back up. He's also been in the league a few years so you shouldn't have to worry about too many mental breakdowns. Throw in the fact that he gets to keep playing under Ryan and this has the potential to be a fantastic move. Here's hoping.

Oh, and welcome to the board!

Could be a good under the radar signing.I don't think it means we dont sign a pass rusher in the girst round of the draft though.Not unless we trade back anyway.

I think signing with the Saints wuld be a good move for him. He might not be a proven starter yet but he would come into a situation where he would have a leg up on the competition seeing he allready knows the system.

Integral piece of our new DC's system.

Good role player.

Good character.

Motivated to start / right price.

Sounds like our newest Saint!

Junior Galette Contract, Salaries, and Transactions


...if in fact you meant Galette by Jr..?


But it's really hard to estimate what the cap situation is at the moment, because the details of the Benjamin Watson signing and the Courtney Roby and Ramon Humber re-signings haven't yet been released as far as I know.
cap is a pain to figure right now agreed. if they can get Butler contract details to look like Jr ( yes galette) i will be very happy with the cap hit.

Then again I really don't know what caliber of a player he really is and if he'll fit into what Ryan is now doing in New Orleans, because it might not be a carbon copy of the scheme he implemented in Dallas.

Well, in any case, it can't hurt to kick some tires.

this if he does sign should be good news for all those Shanle haters. maybe. Shanle will no give up the starting role without a fight. i do not know what the mix will look at when camp starts but no matter what i would like the youth move at OLB.

Next up ILB i hope
