We gain nothing by cutting Gallete. He has 16.2 mil in dead money.

I'm wondering if Loomis really can spot talent at all? He gives way too much to way too few.

I don't think it's Loomis' job to "spot" talent as you say, it's his job to make the business side of things work out...

It can't be all on Loomis who gets paid and who doesn't...

Re: And now Galette is on the block?

Galette will not be cut. Cutting him would give the Saints no relief. But if they trade him, they will have 3+ million in dead money, but save just north of 11 million.

If they can find a team willing to have Galette for 12 million this year with no guarantees in the future years, they might get a taker. Due to the money amount, they will not get a premium pick unless they also are taking back a contract someone wants to move. But, my guess is a team with cap space would be willing to give a late rounder or cheap role player for him. I'd look toward Jags or Raiders- both teams with lots of space and little edge rushing presence. The Redskins might also be a fit. Neither of those teams would give more than a 5th rounder for him.

Re: And now Galette is on the block?

It was fun to watch Galette grow into a starter.

We all pulled for him.

Can't say he's handled success well or that he's more than a situational pass rusher now.

If we trade him even to save a few million, I'll understand.

Brees is only $26.4 against the cap this season. Not $33M.

I mean who wants to deal with THAT at the press podium on Monday through Friday between games.... And once Payton makes up his mind and decides he doesn't like you, you're pretty much dead to him, it's over. With the team in the state it was in at the end of last year, I could easily see them moving on from Junior, just because of the off season character issues.
plus him running his mouth. I think JG is a locker room cancer.

Re: And now Galette is on the block?

whenever it comes out in the news that a team has someone on the trading block doesn't that usually mean they don't want these guys, but no one else is willing to trade for them?

I saw this earlier and thought it was pretty accurate:
