Galette's contract is geared toward the sack...

Guess what Galette is focused on in his play?!?

Guess what Galette is not worried about in his play?!?

Our most effective formation is a 4-2-5/Nickel...

He's an undersized, situational 4-3 end at best...

There's several defenders on this roster I'd put ahead of him...

And, no one forced him to post garbage on Twitter and his actions speak of his character...

This team has got rid of more physically talented players for character football players and had success...

It's addition by subtraction...

And as posted already, to pay one season on him to move him and get a younger, faster, versatile dynamic playmaker, it'd be worth it to convert his contract to minimize the cap hit and trade him to a team that likes more dramatic personalities, such as the Redskins...

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

I'd like to see some kind of source for this, to know more, but I'll say this much -- once Payton decides he is done with a player, he is DONE with the player. They become like the invisible man. There's no coming back from that.

If Payton was done with JR he wouldn't have let him play in the last game of the season. JR was injured but needed a few more sacks to get a bonus in his contract and payton let him play the whole game.

This speculation is bull**** just like this thread.

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

Sounds like SP. Cut your nose off to spite your face. Yeah, lets get rid of our best defensive player. That makes a lot of sense. Also, none of us really knows what happened yet there are a lot of people who can't wait to jump the gun and get rid of our best defensive player all the while trying to re0sign our worst defensive player, Patrick Robinson. Typical Saints kinda moves.

Granted I haven't seen the PFF stats, but I'd much rather take Jordan over Gallette (both are really DEs), since he can actually defend the run. And I'd probably place Lewis above both of them. Furthermore, I'd venture a guess that Byrd might become the player this season, the Saints were hoping to get for last season with Allen on-board.

He is definitely our best pure pass rusher, but I don't think that translates into him being the best defensive player the Saints have.

The thing is Gallette has been a slow learner from the beginning. He works hard and eventually got his football together(sacks anyway). Maybe now he'll mature into a well rounded individual after this adversity.

Yep... The guy was undrafted for a reason. He wasn't all that good. But he had the drive and determination and that's why the coaches as well as us fans loved him. He's started to come into his own on the field and I think his immaturity off the field has taught him some important lessons. I look for him to make big improvements this year on and off the field.

True, 2014 was a bad year for everyone.

I'd rank our top 5 players on defense...
1. Byrd
2. Jordan
3. Lewis
4. Galette
5. Lofton

With Hicks, Vaccaro, JJenkins, Edibali, Foster and Walker as up and coming talented players.

Gotta tell ya, Walker was the only guy I saw successfully with some consistency Bull-Rush an offensive lineman this past season...think you're short-changing him...

Edebali has a better motor, heart, effort than Galette and with more reps Kasim passes him on the depth chart if the front office wouldn't have to explain Galette's contract...

Damn it, we really missed Foster this season; his role reminds me of a Justin Tuck-type (Tuck's rookie season) that was a great change of pace/rotational pass rusher...

Can't agree to rank Byrd our best defender when he can't even play thirteen games or finish the season/postseason; Buffalo fans warned us...

Jordan just disappeared way too many times; he just didn't show enough like he did in the away game at Carolina or at Pittsburgh; he could be our best, but something wasn't right...

Pound for pound, my money is that Lewis is our best defender....

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

I love Edibali. He hustles. I believe he will develop into a star player. Gallette is a good pass rusher, who is overpaid.
