Browns GM John Dorsey said the team is discussing the possibility of signing free agent DE Junior Galette.

"We’re in conversation," Dorsey said. "It's not closed yet. His agent is here, and I was going to sit and talk with him today a little bit and just kind of feel him out." Galette managed three sacks last season, his first action since 2014 due to back-to-back Achilles' tears. With the rust now knocked off and Galette turning 30 on Tuesday, he has some pass-rush juice left in the tank.
Mar 26 - 7:20 PM

Redskins VP Doug Williams said the team is moving on from free agent OLB Junior Galette.

That appeared to be the case after Washington withdrew their contract offer last week, but Williams confirmed it in an interview on Sunday. Playing for the first time since 2014 because of back-to-back torn Achilles, Galette only recorded three sacks last season, but he did create consistent pressure. He would be a good get for a pass-rush needy team.
Mar 26 - 9:39 AM

The Redskins have withdrawn their offer to free agent OLB Junior Galette.

Washington reportedly had a change of heart once other teams showed interest. It's unsurprising the Browns and Rams are among those interested in Galette since he has ties to Browns personnel consultant Scot McCloughan, who brought Galette to Washington, and Rams LB coach Joe Barry, who was Galette's defensive coordinator with the Redskins.
Mar 23 - 9:21 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins are "in negotiations" with free agent OLB Junior Galette.

Making his first regular-season appearance since 2014, Galette played all 16 games last season, recording three sacks. Now 30 (later this month), Galette hasn't had much of a market and appears likely to land back in D.C.
Mar 16 - 9:20 AM

Redskins OLB Junior Galette (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

After missing the first two preseason games, Galette was able to get in a few reps in team drills on Wednesday, suggesting he is close to full health. Coach Jay Gruden said there is a chance he will play on Sunday. With Trent Murphy (knee) out for the year, a healthy Galette would be a big bonus to the pass rush.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette (hamstring) will miss another week.

Galette was not able to play in the preseason opener, and it looks like it will keep him out of the second game as well. Coming off back-to-back Achilles' tears and having not played in a game since 2014, it is not surprising Galette came down with a hamstring injury, and the Redskins will likely take things very slow in his recovery. If he is healthy, Galette will be a big bonus to a pass rush which will be without Trent Murphy (knee) all season.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette (Achilles') said he dropped 15 pounds.

"I'll be better than what I was," Galette promised before saying he feels "a lot lighter and more explosive." Despite an off-field incident in April, Galette's offseason work has drawn praise as he works back from two Achilles' tears in as many years. If he can stay healthy and be close to the player he was before the injury, Galette would be a massive boost to the Redskins' pass rush.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Junior Galette (Achilles') still has his "quick twitch."

It is tough to believe Galette is back to his old form following two Achilles' tears, but the comments are still a good sign as the pass rusher tries to work his way back. Despite the praise, Gruden admits Galette still has "a little ways to go," but the coach expects him to "get himself into shape." If his health cooperates, Galette has the talent to be a rotational factor on the edge.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette (Achilles') has resumed running and lifting, and is still targeting the beginning of training camp for his return.

Galette hasn't played since 2014 after shredding both of his Achilles' tendons. He's also dealing with more off-the-field trouble after an April arrest for "disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders." Galette was briefly one of the league's most electric pass rushers, but now 29, anything he provides in 2017 will be a bonus. It's possible he's left off the 53-man roster.
Tue, May 16, 2017 01:38:00 PM

According to the police report, Junior Galette was seen "striking another individual" before running away from an officer.

The officer caught up with Galette and used a stun gun to subdue him. Galette was originally arrested for simple assault, but he was ultimately charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders before being released on $500 bond. The lack of an assault charge is good news for Galette considering his history, but the revelation he was seen hitting someone could still spark an investigation and discipline from the league. The Redskins released a statement saying they are "aware of the incident" and "gathering information."

WLOX Biloxi reports Redskins OLB Junior Galette was arrested Friday night for disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders.

WLOX reports Galette was involved in a fight at MGM Park in Biloxi, Mississippi before fleeing. Attorney Ralph Whalen confirmed to The New Orleans Advocate Galette was arrested, but he did not comment on the specifics of the case. This is not the first time Galette has faced legal trouble, and 2015 accusations of domestic violence ultimately ended his time in New Orleans, although the charges were eventually dropped. He has been with the Redskins the last two seasons, but both were spent on injured reserve with Achilles' injuries.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette (Achilles') is targeting the start of training camp.

Meaning he will miss the entire offseason program. The ex-Saint hasn't played since 2014, tearing both Achilles' tendons in the interim. Galette turns 29 on March 27. Whatever he contributes this season will be a bonus.
Tue, Mar 21, 2017 06:41:00 PM

Redskins OLB Junior Galette is back with the team on a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Galette's contract tolled after he spent all of 2016 on the non-football injury list, but still took a pay cut on the $1.6 million he was scheduled to make. Galette has not played since 2014 because of back-to-back Achilles' tears, but he is a solid, low-cost gamble for a team in need of pass rushers.
Sat, Feb 25, 2017 10:33:00 AM

The Redskins already have OLB Junior Galette under contract for 2017.

Galette's one-year contract tolled after he spent all last season on the NFI list. There was some confusion after Washington tweaked his deal last week. Galette hasn't played since 2014 but gives the Redskins another pass rusher when healthy. He's expected to be ready for the start of 2017.
