Junior Galette: Contemplating retirement
Galette announced via his personal Instagram account that he's contemplating retirement.
After missing the 2015 and 2016 seasons due to Achilles injuries, Galette showed he still has something left in the tank in 2017, cranking out 20 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games with Washington. The Redskins let him walk in free agency earlier this offseason, but the 30-year-old veteran claims he has three contract offers on the table and is simply taking his time deciding his future. It wouldn't be a surprise if he waited until training camp to join a team, should he decide to continue playing.... See More ... See Less
Junior Galette: Done in Washington
The Redskins informed Galette on Monday he won't be re-signed for the 2018 season, The Washington Post reports.
Galette spent the last three seasons in Washington but was unable to see game action until 2017 after sustaining a pair of Achilles' tears during his first two training camps with the team. The veteran linebacker played all 16 games in a rotational role for the Redskins last season, recording 20 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. Galette -- who turns 30 on Tuesday -- is unlikely to see much in the form of contracts with multi-year guarantees given his injury history.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Junior Galette: Expected to sign elsewhere in free agency
Galette said last week in a radio appearance with 106.7 The Fan Washington that he doesn't expect the Redskins to re-sign him when he becomes a free agent at the start of the new league year, Scott Allen of The Washington Post reports."I haven't spoken to [the Washington front office] personally," Galette said. "But speaking to my agent, Drew Rosenhaus...he just basically said they're pretty much gonna let me test free agency, because I'm pretty sure that if it was the other way around, I think they would have offered me a deal and nothing has been offered. There's nothing else left for me to believe but they want me to test free agency."
Galette has spent each of the past three seasons with Washington, though he didn't make his team debut until 2017 after suffering Achilles' tears in his first two training camps. The 29-year-old was forced to settle for a part-time role upon returning to action for all 16 games last season, finishing with 20 tackles (14 solo) and three sacks. Though he has a pair of double-digit sack campaigns on his career ledger, Galette's injury history and advancing age may make it difficult for him to secure more than a one-year guaranteed commitment from a team in free agency this offseason....

Redskins' Junior Galette: No go for preseason opener
Galette (hamstring) won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Ravens, ESPN's John Keim reports.

His next chance to taste preseason action will come Aug. 19 against the Packers.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Junior Galette: No restrictions in training camp
Galette (Achilles) will not be under any restrictions as training camp gets underway, JP Finlay of CSNMA reports.
Galette has missed the majority of the past two seasons with Achilles injuries but finally appears to be healthy entering training camp.

The 29-year-old recorded 10 sacks and three forced fumbles in his last healthy season for the Saints in 2014.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Junior Galette: Inching toward comeback
Galette (Achilles) is getting closer to returning to full strength, John Keim on ESPN.com reports. "He's got a little ways to go," head coach Jay Gruden noted, "but you can see that he's got the quick twitch, which you really need off the edge."
Gruden and the Redskins are hoping Galette can make a full comeback after missing the majority of the past two seasons with Achilles injuries. When healthy, Galette represents Washington's best pass rusher of the edge, but the team isn't afraid to patiently wait for the 29-year-old to get to that point. Preston Smith got the starting reps last week during OTAs but they also have second-round pick Ryan Anderson and Trent Murphy, who is suspended for the first four games of the season. All this considered, it appears the Redskins will run strongside linebacker by committee this year, which will hopefully include Galette at some point.... See More ... See Less
Redskins' Junior Galette: Limited during OTAs
Galette (Achilles) will be eased back into action during OTAs, Stephen Czarda of Redskins.com reports.
Galette will be limited during the Redskins' OTAs next week and likely held out of the team portions, according to coach Jay Gruden. The oustide linebacker has suffered Achilles' tears in back-to-back offseasons, so it makes sense for Washington to proceed with extreme caution this time around. The best-case scenario for Galette would be coming into training as a full participant later this summer.... See More ... See Less
