Galette (chest) has agreed to a one-year contract with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Galette, who signed a four-year, $41.5 million extension last offseason, was recently released by the Saints after a tape emerged that allegedly showed him hitting a woman with a belt during a fight on a beach. He was also arrested in January for unrelated domestic violence accusations, although the charges were ultimately dropped. The videotape might have been a career-ending incident for a lesser player, but the Redskins are betting that Galette's talent will outweigh any public relations backlash. Coming off back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks, Galette also suffered a pectoral injury during his extremely eventful offseason. Assuming he makes it back to full health for Week 1, he'll likely hold down the starting spot at outside linebacker across from Ryan Kerrigan. Prior to Galette's signing, second-round rookie Preston Smith was expected to compete with 2014 second-rounder Trent Murphy for the starting job.
Galette (chest) will be released by the Saints, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Galette was arrested in January for domestic violence accusations, and while those charges were ultimately dropped, a videotape of an unrelated incident recently surfaced, allegedly showing the pass-rusher striking a woman with a belt during a fight on a beach. Coming off consecutive seasons with double-digit sacks, Galette will now have to look for another team while recovering from a pectoral injury and awaiting a likely suspension. Given the serious nature of his offenses, it won't be surprising if he doesn't play football in 2015. This is a huge loss for the Saints from a football and salary cap perspective, as Galette was one of the team's few effective defenders last season, and he signed a four-year, $41.5 million extension less than a year ago. His absence could help rookie second-round draft pick Hau'oli Kikaha secure a key role.
A video has surfaced that allegedly shows Galette striking a woman with a belt in 2013, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Galette finished sixth in the NFL with 12 sacks in 2013. Rushing the passer is clearly a specialty for the sack-happy Galette as an outside linebacker in the Saints 3-4 defense. The question, however, is whether Galette can make enough stops to warrant starting at linebacker over more consistent options in IDP leagues, as he had only 40 tackles on the season. As such, Galette presents a high-risk, high-reward option for owners in IDP leagues.

2013

With Victor Butler likely to miss the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, Galette will start at outside linebacker in the Saints' 3-4 defense. Galette played defensive end his first three seasons in New Orleans after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2010. With 9.5 sacks in limited playing time the last two years, he projects as an interesting IDP sleeper if he can hold onto the starting spot.

2012

Galette is expected to see playing time in the defensive end rotation, and could even start while Will Smith is suspended for the first four games of the year.

2011

Galette will compete for a roster spot on the defensive line with the Saints.

2010

Galette made the Saints 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent. He will contribute mainly on special teams if he is active on game days.
