Redskins Ready to Move On From Veteran Pass Rusher Junior Galette

It looks like the Redskins are moving on from Junior Galette, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Citing a team source, Chick Hernandez of NBC Sports Washington is reporting that the team has withdrawn its contract offer to Galette, the veteran pass rusher who finally got on the field last year after missing all of his first two seasons in Washington with injuries. He is an unrestricted free agent.

The Redskins may have a replacement for Galette lined up. They had former Bear Pernell McPhee in for a visit earlier this week and there was a report that they made him a contract offer after that. McPhee subsequently visited the Falcons facility, but he has not signed anywhere. However, there have been no reports that a deal is imminent as of this morning.

  1. MCPHEE Redskins OLB says:

    It appears PERNELL McPHEE will be a REDSKIN and JUNIOR GALLETT won’t.

    Means flexibility in the mid-rounds of the draft.

    Now if JOHNOTHAN HANKINS is signed up, we get draft flexibility in the top two rounds.

    RB, OT, S could be in the top two rounds at that point.

    If so, I would take the best available player at # 13.

    I think the best available would be S DERWIN JAMES in that event, but we won’t know for sure until we get there

  2. MCPHEE Redskins OLB says:

    My mock 3.0 with McPHEE and HANKINS signed.

    013 – DERWIN JAMES S Florida State.
    044 – RONALD JONES II RB University of Southern California.
    SUA’CRAVINS SS – Don’t like the situation, but he’s not going anywhere.
    119 – KYLE LAULETTA QB University of Richmond.
    149 – JOSEPH NOTEBOOM OT. Texas Christian University. Convert to LG.
    188 – DAURICE FOUNTAIN WR Northern Iowa.
    231 – DAVID WELLS TE San Diego State.
    241 – KAHLIL McKENZIE Jr. DT University of Tennessee.

  3. McPHEE Redskins OLB says:

    And now it’s official McPHEE to the REDSKINS.

    But HANKINS, no?

    So mock 4.0

    013 – VITA VEA or Da’RON PAYNE starting DT in 4-3 sets.
    044 – RONALD JONES II starting three-down back.
    3rd round – SU’A CRAVENS. I don’t think he’s moved. Slot CB/SS.
    119 – KYLE LAULETTA Developmental QB.
    149 – JOE NOTEBOOM OT. Moved to LG. Possible starter.
    188 – DAURICE FOUNTAIN Developmental receiver.
    231 – DAVID WELLS Developmental tight end.
    241 – NATRELL JAMERSON Developmental FS like FISH SMITHSON was last year.

  4. McPHEE Redskins OLB says:

    My to-do list as of now.

    1 – Starting LG – TY NSEKHE anyone?
    2 – Starting DT/NT. PHIL TAYLOR Sr. in a pinch? Probable draftee.
    3 – Starting RB. Definite draftee.
    4 – Developmental QB draftee.
    4 – Upgrade o-line back-ups. CLEMMONS, maybe. Fourth OT draftee.
    5 – Fourth TE. Draftee.
    6 – Developmental WR. Possible draftee/UFA.
    7 – Fourth DE. Possible draftee/UFA.

  5. Forget Capt. KIRK and respect Capt. SMITH says:

    CRAVENS out, better and extra picks in.

    013,044,109,142,163,188,231, 241, and a conditional sixth pick in 2020.
