Either he's trying to light a fire under Junior's ass or he's screwing with the media. I hope its a mixture of both

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

Releasing a player that gets 10 sacks a year would not be smart unless you replace him with someone better. JR. is a one trick pony but he is good at it. He does need to shut his pie hole and remember the hard road he had to get where he is now. As a fan I rooted for him to even make the team, I still like the guy. If we get a stud NT on that front line he will have even more sacks under his belt and if he shuts up all will be good.

What it means, I think, is that he's attractive in a trade becasue his salary is low since we eat the huge roster bonus.

Teams may be willing to give us decent compensation for a good pass rusher with a cheap contract.

Just an FYI: Junior's contract shows to be history on Spotrac. I have no idea what that means but that site updates info quickly.

With all that being said, I personally think its a mind game by Payton

A way to show Galette "hey, your not above the team, you may have been successful but the team comes first and you can be let go at any moment by displaying conduct that is detrimental to the team"

Cancer needs to be treated before it kills. The 2014 season died because it went untreated. 2015....?

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

resign him asap redo the deal and spread out that stupid contract to be more cap friendly.

III. Restructure

Junior Galette

2015 Cap Number: $15.45 M

The biggest cap space can be gained by a very simple maneuver with Junior Galette's contract. Galette is due a $12.5 million roster bonus on the first day of the new league year. By converting that to a signing bonus, the Saints will gain $10 million in cap space. This will add an additional $3 million in cap charges in the final four years of the contract.

Projected Move: Restructure contract

Cap Savings: $10 Million
