Saints outside linebacker Junior Galetteís emergence as a playmaker in Rob Ryanís much-improved defense was one of the most eye-opening stories in the NFL in 2013, when Galette finished just a half-sack behind defensive end Cameron Jordanís team-leading total of 12.5. Another 12-sack season in 2014, along with playing at least 60 percent of the Saints' defensive snaps, would allow the fifth-year veteran to opt out of the final year of his contract and enter free agency in 2015. Galette is one of the glamor pieces in the Saintsí young defensive nucleus, and SI.comís Don Banks caught up with him Saturday morning during Saints training camp at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

SI.com: Thatís quite the beard youíve got going. Thatís more than just a camp beard, isnít it?

Galette: Yeah, Iíve got to get me a Gillette deal. Itís not a camp beard. Itís something where I started a campaign -- Iím not cutting my beard until we win a Super Bowl. I started it during the 2012 season at some point. I trim it sometimes after the season, but thatís it. Itís not getting cut until we win a ring.

​​​SI.com: So how is training camp spent at a 156-year old mountain resort, rather than the heat of Louisiana?
Galette: Oh, man, itís night and day. We usually go about five or six reps at a time, and when youíre in New Orleans, by that fourth rep, youíre exhausted. Youíre like, man, I have nothing left. Sometimes you get delirious. Like, whatís the call, or your thinking process slows down dramatically. But here, you can go all six reps just balls to the wall. So it gives you an edge to be able to play in top form every single down.

SI.com: You never want training camp to go slowly, but I would imagine youíre not in a hurry to return to New Orleans for the second half of camp?



Galette: I mean, training camp is training camp at the end of the day. Whether itís in New Orleans or here. Youíre just practicing every day and hitting the same guys, and you kind of just want to play as a team. Thatís what Iím itching for. But thereís a light at the end of the tunnel in training camp.

Would love to see another great season from Junior. Would hate to lose him in free agency though.
