Junior Galette Tears Achilles, Will Miss Another Season In Washington
Washington Redskins defensive end Junior Galette tore his achilles and will miss the entire 2016 season. Galette revealed the news on his twitter account.
Washington signed Galette to a one-year deal last offseason. He tore his achilles 5 days before the regular season opener.
He signed another one-year deal with the Redskins in hopes he could see the field in a regular season game for the first time as a Redskin.
The Saints once viewed Galette as a big piece of their franchise, signing him to a 4 year extension worth $41.5 million and $23 million guaranteed back in September of 2014. He was also voted a team captain. Despite a 10 sack season in 2014, Galette had a number of behavioral issues which eventually led to his release.
He will count $12.1 million in dead money against the Saints salary cap this season.
