Ramifications of the Junior Galette Release

What happens now that Junior Galette is no longer with the Saints?

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The players seem to be happy Galette is gone...

Junior obviously hasn't learned any lesson...

The Saints made this move without any care in the world about what it means financially to the team, because it's going to cost them...

Galette also has a $1.25 million salary that is guaranteed this season that the Saints will owe him if he doesn't sign with another team. The rest of the money is lost to the team unless they can prove some extenuating circumstance that I cant imagine would hold up.

From a salary cap perspective the Saints will gain no cap room this year and his cap charge will remain the same $5.45 million as if he was on the team. In 2016 it is where the blow becomes crippling with $12.1 million in dead money being charged to the Saints salary cap.

The Saints already have Galette's replacement waiting in the wings...

Junior's going to have to get some touch ups on his tattoo...
