I love how with this one tweet Junior Galette went from our best pure pass rusher the last couple of years and potential starting OLB next year, to basically a scrub backup in everyone's mind lol. Social media is amazing, and message boards or wonderful.

As with any base 3-4 defense, the team will look to the two OLB slots to generate a pass rush, and fortunately for the Saints, they already have two players on the roster that look to be well suited to the role in Martez Wilson and Junior Galette (who happens to be a restricted free agent). The defense should actually improve just by getting the two onto the field more, as both have shown an ability to get to the quarterback in situational roles. Each player ranked in the Top 15 in Pass Rushing Productivity among 4-3 ends who played at least 25% of their teams snaps, with Galette coming in as the fourth-most productive rusher. Of course, it remains to be seen whether the two can make the transition from situational rushers to full-time players at OLB, particularly in the case of Galette, who’s been used more traditionally as a defensive end than Wilson. Therefore, finding another edge rusher remains one of the Saints’ top needs this offseason.
Saints DE/OLB Junior Galette says he is "very excited" about the team's switch to a 3-4 defense under Rob Ryan.
"Any transition (to outside linebacker) I would have to make would be smooth," Galette said. "God blessed me with the ability to move around, and I would be blessed to make that transition." Galette managed five sacks on just 26 percent of the snaps last season. He's viewed as one of the cornerstones to build on. Feb 22 - 3:42 PM

Well, if he thinks he's a $4mil a year player, cya. Dude can't expect that much. He hasn't proved enough yet. I could see us paying him maybe about $1 mil a year and that would probably be generous... He's a "potential" starter, not guaranteed. Can't expect too much. 700k. Veteran minimum. Take it?
