RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
Galette will compete for a roster spot on the defensive line with the Saints.
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.
