Draft Scout Junior Galette News
01/11/16 - LB Junior Galette, who was lost for the season with a torn right Achilles tendon during training camp, said Monday that he "absolutely" will be back with Washington next season. The Redskins hold a right-of-first refusal on Galette's contract after it signed him last summer. He was cut by New Orleans for incidents both on and off the field.
11/30/15 - LB Junior Galette was reinstated from reserve/suspended Monday (Nov. 30) and reverts to the Redskins' reserve/injured list.
11/16/15 - LB Junior Galette of the Redskins has been suspended two games by the NFL for his role in a domestic violence incident in January.
Galette, who is currently on season-ending injured reserve after suffering a torn Achilles in August, will begin serving his suspension immediately and lose two game checks for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy.
Galette, 27, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor simple battery/domestic violence in January after a domestic incident at his home in Kenner, La., but the charges were dropped on Feb. 19. The accuser later filed a civil suit against Galette, alleging he sexually abused her for years. But that suit was dismissed in August after the 22-year-old woman failed to pursue the case.
09/02/15 - LB Junior Galette (torn Achilles) was placed on reserve/injured by the Redskins Monday (Aug. 31).
07/31/15 - OLB Junior Galette signed a one-year contract with the Redskins Friday (July 31) after being released by the New Orleans Saints because of off-field problems.
Galette's agent, lvin Keels, said via Twitter on Friday: "Junior Galette will sign a 1 year deal with the Washington Redskins today. Junior is grateful for the second chance he is being afforded by the Redskins and is looking forward to not only producing on the field but also to display the veteran leadership in the locker room.
"The deal is for the league minimum. This deal isn't about the money. Junior feels that he has a lot to prove both on and off of the field."
Galette was cut Monday by the Saints following the release of a 2013 video that appears to show a physical altercation on a beach between Galette and a woman that involved a belt.
Galette was released after posting 22 sacks the past two seasons with the Saints. The parting led to a tirade from Galette that will prompt further character questions from the Redskins.
The NFL has talked to Galette about his arrest in January for domestic simple battery, and the league is now investigating the 2013 video of the scuffle in South Beach, Fla.
"Obviously, he's had some issues in the past," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Thursday before the first practice of training camp. "But we like to draw our own conclusions about every individual that we bring into this building. And we'll go from there. It's very early right now. I haven't had a chance to talk to him at all. So until I do, I won't draw any conclusions on what's happened to him in the past."
Asked about the process that occurs when players with prior issues are considered, Gruden said, "It starts up top with (club president) Bruce (Allen) and (general manager) Scot (McCloughan) and myself. We all three came to the same conclusion. Like I said before, all the decisions we make are as a group. It's all three of us together. We decided to take a chance and give him an opportu
