Should The Falcons Go After Junior Galette?

Recommended Posts

"Galette is coming from a team that currently runs a 3-4 scheme. Outside linebackers who come from 3-4 defensive schemes, like Junior, can make an easy transition to a 4-3 defensive end. The Atlanta Falcons as a team only totalled 22 sacks. A player by the name of Justin Houston(Falcon Filtered) totalled that many sacks by himself.

This team has been talent ridden on the defensive side of the ball for quite a while and this could be potentially a low-risk high-reward situation..

Since the John Abaraham days, the Falcons haven't put any significant pressure on the opposing team's quarterback."DaVonte Hughes

He was in middle of a gang attack and they were charging him!

He was the Saints Captain and we all know TD and Co. love the Captains.

I am sure Coach Cox can keep him in line during drills and sacking the QB on Sunday.

Thanks Monoxide, fixed it!

I may be the one out looking in on this one but I believe we should under 2 stipulations. If the NFL does not plan to punish him for that belt whipping video and if the FO believes he has had his eyes open by being cut. I would then offer him a 3 year contract worth a good bit with minimum money guaranteed.

Why not? He could only help this team, considering the pass rush is still a question mark no matter how optimistic we seem to be over a rookie and an unproven veteran coming off of injury. At the end of the day, he will end up on a team with a better ranked D than us (31 others).

The question of us going after Gallette should be a simple YES.

Saints just cut the man- they just paid the man 18 mil, they're on the hook for 17 mil in dead money and they NEEDED him, I'd be really leery of signing him.

If it was just the stuff we know about, they'd take the inevitable suspension coming and keep him on board. Has to be more.

Doubt anybody signs him this year, if he spends the next year getting his act together, then maybe next year.

Now, it could be that getting cut was just the thing that needed to happen to snap him back to reality, lots of alcoholics don't sober up until they lose their jobs, could be the same thing with Galette.

But man, have to be really sure he was a changed man before I brought him on board.

If a team signed Greg Hardy I think a team will sign JG. After QB, a good pass rusher is hard to come by.

I think we all know that this guy has red flags related to his character which could prevent and possibly should prevent us from signing him.

What we're not considering is scheme fit. I don't think he fits our scheme very well. I live in NOLA and the biggest thing I've heard about Galette from Aints fans is that he is a one trick pony. He can Rush the passer, but that's it. He sucks at Run stopping and isn't very good in coverage.

So, where would he fit in our scheme? LEO? We already have Beasley and Schofield. I don't think he can play Strongside backer because of his liability in run coverage. He's obviously not a 5 technique for us.

So basically, he's a 3rd down pass-rushing specialist only. Are you all willing to drop some money on a red fag riddled 1 down-only player? If he was going to come super-cheap, then maybe it would be worth considering. However, you know some other team is going to be willing to pay more because he'll be a better scheme fit for them.

Not gonna happen....

However in the NFL second chances are a dime a dozen especially with talented players.... Falcons filter is not as stringent as before with DQ it seems "Jalen Collins"...

Galette could be facing a lengthy suspension for domestic violence so a one year deal gets shafted.... He has had personality clashes with coaches at Temple and the Saints.... His posse mentality is a red flag as well....

The funny part to me would be the Stains fans meltdown if we were to sign him..... laugh.png

Why would JG get a lengthy suspension for domestic violence- he was acquitted. If anything he will get no more than 4 games.

Wrong. New policy requires a minimum 6 game suspension for a first offense. It's not just that he won't get away with less, as much as he can't get away with less.

As far as whether he'll play this year, it's just like Hardy. He's acid, and no team is gonna touch unless or until they no what the punishment is going to be.

He does not have to be convicted.....

Violations involving assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault will result in a baseline six-game suspension without pay, with more if aggravating factors are present, such as the use of a weapon or a crime against a child.

A second offense will result in banishment from the NFL.

- According to the NFL's new conduct policy put into place Dec. 10: "A baseline suspension of six games without pay for violations involving assault, battery, domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse, other forms of family violence, or sexual assault, with consideration given to possible mitigating or aggravating circumstances."

- Also from the new conduct policy: "If you are convicted of a crime or subject to a disposition of a criminal proceeding, you are subject to discipline. But even if your conduct does not result in a criminal conviction, if the league finds that you have engaged in conduct (prohibited by the policy), you will be subject to discipline."

The thing is, when it really comes down to it, it's simply not a matter of whether or not you want us to sign him. It's a matter of if we will, and I think, at this point, that anyone who actually understands anything about this team, and those that run it, know that we will not be signing him.

It's that simple.

And that's a good thing.

Here's a thought.... Let's build a great team while doing it the classy way, not the cowboy way.
