In 2013 Galette signed a 3 year/$7.5 million deal. Then he has a breakout season and even though he had two years left on that deal Loomis decides to offer him a new contract which ended up making him virtually unable to be cut.

Point is, how nice would it have been to stick to that 2013 contract? We could cut him with probably very little cap hit.

And he also could have walked to another squad for big money

Re: Galette injured, could require surgery

And this is the guy I've been getting blasted for....because I think he's a cancer....This video isnt okay...If he played for New England or Pittsburgh he would have been cut as soon as this video surfaced....This guy was hungry but as soon as he got recognition he got too arrogant....We need productivity not drama.

He wouldn't be cut if the team was on the hook for $12 million

And like it or not, there's not enough evidence in this video to cut Galette.

There is a clear body of work he created off the field to cut him right now. His agent has also said nothing about his injury. Not even general PR about staying positive.

Loomis contract with Galette was definitely premature...

That said, we had a good draft and free agent addition that, at the least, could rotate and find matchups that will be more than effective...

I'm not sweating this also because early in these OTAs it was reported that his role was going to be specific to pass rush situations...

Losing some depth may be a concern, but you can only keep four OLBers anyways with NFL roster limits...
Maybe Payton gave a "sweep the leg" order.

The comments about former players? I'm sure in his own way he was trying to build up his current teammates. If anything it was a poor choice of words.

The woman? She was crazy and it was dismissed. If anything he hangs around the wrong people.

The weed? It was his friend's. No charges. He's never failed a drug test. If anything he hangs around the wrong people.

The video? Who the hell really knows what they were talking about. If anything he hangs around the wrong people.


See a pattern? Yep, it happens with most young guys who come from nothing and become overnight millionaires. Should he grow up? YES. Should he be cut? No. Not yet, anyway...
