Is Junior Galette hinting at a possible return to the Redskins? Maybe

Is Junior Galette hinting at a possible return to the Redskins? Maybe

Junior Galette played well for the Redskins in 2017, he just didn't play enough.A 

Coming back from consecutive torn Achilles injuries that forced him to miss the 2015 and 2016 seasons, it made sense for Washington to ease Galette back into the pass rush rotation early in the season. It made sense, for a time.

Galette did not get more than 30 snaps until the second half of the season, and even then, his snap total slipped below 20 for consecutive NFC East games in November.A 

The statistical production wasn't particularly impressive, Galette registered just three sacks in 16 games, but Pro Football Focus graded him a +16.2 on the season, landing in the Top 15 among 3-4 outside linebackers.A 

When the season ended and his contract expired, the Redskins made an offer to keep Galette. The money wasn't enough and the two sides ended the negotiations.A 

Now, just two weeks before the start of training camp, it's hard to say the outside linebacker spot couldn't use a boost. The 'Skins have stalwarts in Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith, but after that come Pernell McPhee and Ryan Anderson.A 

Washington moved quickly to sign McPhee after contract talks with Galette broke down. He's a veteran that has produced, when healthy, though he's fought injuries over the least few seasons in Chicago. Anderson, a second-round pick in 2017, showed zero in his rookie season. Could he make big strides in year two? Sure, but that might be a risky proposition.A
