Linebacker Junior Galette has not signed with a team for the 2018 season and he may not be signing with anyone either.

In a post to his Instagram account, Galette says he’s been offered deals with three teams but has not signed any of them because he’s not sure he wants to continue playing football.

“The real reason I haven’t signed is because I’ve contemplated retiring,” Galette wrote. “I have 3 Deals Currently on the table and will Plan Accordingly. All my fans i promise this will be my Best I’m not saying nothing else.”

Galette had 20 tackles and three sacks for Washington last season and missed the two previous seasons after two torn Achilles tendons. He had 22 sacks over the 2013 and 2014 seasons for the Saints.

There was word of interest from the Raiders and Browns early in free agency, but things have been quiet around Galette over the last couple of months.

  1. Old saying in the NFL; If your thinking about retirement, you already are….

  2. Cool bro, nobody is going to miss you. If your thinking about retiring then your heart is no longer in it.

  3. In an effort to head off the grammar police; I should have used you are or you’re in my sentence. Sorry about that.

    They are still trying to decipher Galette’s hot mess(I cannot figure out what that last “sentence” means: “The real reason I haven’t signed is because I’ve contemplated retiring,” Galette wrote. “I have 3 Deals Currently on the table and will Plan Accordingly. All my fans i promise this will be my Best I’m not saying nothing else.”

  5. Translation: I think I’m worth $8m a season and I’m getting nowhere near that. #elite

  6. NO SHE DOESN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!! GARBAGE..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I wish JG would’ve kept out of trouble cause him and Cam Jordan could’ve been a lethal pass rush attack. Then we wouldn’t have wasted that 2nd round pick on Kikaha.

  8. Chances are those contracts are for much less than he thinks he’s worth. He’s only thinking about it because he’s probably broke and realizes his chances for getting a real job are slim and none.

  9. Those offers will be little barely vet min with lots of clauses he knows he’d struggle to meet. But fans? Plural? Maybe he has a ceiling fan but he must also be counting the one in his car…

  10. Horrible player when with the Saints. “Let’s get.. loud” motivated NOBODY when played on the big screen. A total waste! The French galette should be suing him.

    He has fans?

    Ditto! You beat me to it! Someone in his dysfunctional inner circle is lying to him!

  12. Yes it sounds like he is done. He never was much help to the Redskins.
    and I’m still trying to make sense of that last line. Will this be his best retirement?

    All my fans i promise this will be my Best I’m not saying nothing else.”

  13. Even at league minimum, he’s got no way of remotely matching that kind of income in any other endeavor.

    Goes to show how brutal this game truly is, and might even give you a deeper appreciation for guys that endure that brutality until their wheels come off.

    Who is Junior Galette?

    ————

    I think it is an alias for Lane Johnson

  15. Junior is somewhat dumb. That’s true. But he’s a good football player. I can’t believe the Redskins, as bad as they are on Defense, would rather have Pernell McPhee on 3rd and 8 instead of Junior Galette.
    But then again, maybe that’s why the Skins are always bad on Defense. Poor decisions = Poor results
