Saints News, 9/4/14: Saints Fill Junior Galette's Locker With Basketballs to Celebrate His Extension

On Wednesday, the Saints gave outside linebacker Junior Galette a four-year extension worth $41.5 million. To celebrate, his teammates filled his locker with basketballs because he had said as a kid he couldn't afford a new one. In other news, Payton says RB Travaris Cadet is the team's new emergency QB.
