Payton wants to release Galette?

According to Jason La Canfora. This guy like stirring the s$%t pot!

Junior Galette - New Orleans Saints - 2015 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports coach Sean Payton has "expressed a desire" to release RE Junior Galette.

The Saints just signed Galette to a four-year, $41.5 million extension in September. He went on to post 10 sacks and three forced fumbles after a 12-sack campaign in 2013. But Galette, 27 next month, got into some hot water with the law after the season, as he was arrested for domestic violence and simple battery before later being accused of sexual assault. Galette is due a fully-guaranteed $12.5 million roster bonus next month that the Saints will have to pay. They'd gain nothing by releasing him. Expect Galette back in NOLA this season.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Addition by subtraction...

Don't need any distractions like his...

Will never understand the preemptive motivation to sign him to a contract like that...

Better still, trade our No.1 and Galette for Redskins No. 1 and select Vic Beasley...

We get rid of a lockerroom distraction...

Washington gets the pass rusher they need...

Everybody is happy, happy...

Cant see anyone touching him until the Commissar makes a decision on his suspension.

I like your idea on trading to Washington but trade to Washington and trade out of that pick for more picks

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

With 12.5 guaranteed, he's not going anywhere unless he's traded. And because he's owed 12.5 million, it's unlikely he's traded for anything of value. He'll be a Saint... and one with a chip on his shoulder. Hopefully he'll get back to just playing football, keeping his mouth shut, and putting quarterbacks on their tail.

Most people here would agree so I wouldn't be surprised if it's true. I don't hate the guy I just wish he was more mature.

Payton's just puffing up his chest like he did towards the end of last season. He's just trying to send a message without actually pressing send.

Actually the team that trades for him wouldn't have to pay that 12.5 million. We would eat that, making Galette very attractive to other teams.

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

Well that makes it even worse for us. Not only are we already in a salary cap pickle, we eat his salary and have to pay someone to take his spot. And if it's a high pick, it's going to cost us more.

Does it depend on when he's traded though or there's just no way of getting out of that roster bonus?

Seahawks traded Harvin to Jets and turned their season around. Dead money in 2015 but they got rid of trouble maker and moved on.
