It is being reported that OLB Junior Galette has been cut by the Saints, following off the field issues.  Galette was the teams top pass rusher from last season, taking down the QB behind the line ten times (Cam Jordan was second with seven and a half).  The release will be made official, following the results of Junior Galette's physical set for this weekend.  Here's what's being said:



Looks like it was a long time coming?

Galette has been with the Saints since entering the league in 2010.  He compiled 31.5 sacks, 128 total tackles, 5 forced fumbles, and notched two safeties during his tenure.  The reason for his release likely stems from the infamous beach incident.  More details to come as they are released.
