Washington signed outside linebacker Junior Galette last July on a one-year deal, and he has yet to take the field after suffering a torn Achilles tendon prior to the start of the 2015 season. Galette signed another one-year deal with Washington in March, but according to NFL Media’s Rand Getlin, Galette will be sidelined for the entirety of the 2016 season, too, after tearing the other Achilles.
Galette entered the league as an Authentic Paul Richardson Jersey undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints following the 2010 NFL Draft. After racking up just 9.5 sacks over his first three seasons in New Orleans, Galette’s productivity exploded. In 2013, he finished the season with 12 sacks and two pass breakups. In 2014, his 10 sacks convinced the Saints to give him a four-year, $41.5 million dollar contract in 2014.
