Taking a closer look at Galette new contract is pretty intriguing. The way he was handled flies in the face of everything the Saints have done the last few years in regards to players and their contracts. When Pierre wanted a new contract they said nope, play on this one year tender and well talk. After the one year was up they inked him long term. Same exact thing for Lance Moore: play a year on a tender and then long term. When it came to Galette, the Saints FO took a very calculated risk. Say they handled him the way they did Moore and thomas and he blows up this year. Then you're paying him probably three times what you inked him for. On the other hand, you're giving an unproven guy a deal that would usually be for every down guys. This gives you a pretty good idea in how much they think of him.
This sounds pretty much exactly like what mascona said on the radio today. Like word for word
