Bio

Junior Galette is a defensive for the New Orleans Saints. He was an undrafted free agent signed by the Saints in 2010.

EARLY YEARS

Galette was born on March 27, 1988 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. After moving to New Jersey, he graduated from St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, N.J in 2006.

TEMPLE UNIVERSITY

Galette played three years at Temple University. As a freshman, he played linebacker, making 52 tackles and recording one sack. He was then moved to defensive end for his next two seasons, where he recorded 15 sacks and three forced fumbles.

He was suspended from the team after his junior year and transferred to Stillman College, a D-II school in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Galette did not get drafted during the 2010 NFL Draft, but signed with the Saints as a free agent.

After making the roster as an undrafted free agent, Galette played sparingly in his first three seasons, despite recording 9.5 sacks in two starts. Under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, Galette became the full-time starter at outside linebacker in 2013. In his first season at linebacker, Galette had 29 tackles, 12 sacks, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble. His biggest game came against the Carolina Panthers on December 8, 2013 when he recorded three sacks.
