It's been an interesting weekend for the New Orleans Saints, to say the very least.
The Saints stunned pretty much everyone last week when they decided to release linebacker Junior Galette, a team captain who had signed a $41 million extension with the team months earlier.
It seems that Galette didn't take his firing all that well, as he decided to go on a massive Twitter rant aimed at pretty much everyone at the Saints whom he wasn't best friends with.

Fury and Vengeance
It seems like the Saints were fed up of Galette and the feeling may well be mutual. On Saturday, Galette hopped on Twitter to air his grievances and make some very serious accusations against his former teammates and even head coach.
Galette deleted his own Twitter account and used his girlfriend's account to make the rant - which has now been deleted as well - so it is hard to follow, but trust us that Galette actually said all these things. The remnants of the rant come from PatSayJack on Reddit and Canal Street Chronicles.
Galette really went in hard on Payton, who i'm assuming had the final say on getting rid of the linebacker.
It started off with him saying that Payton would refuse to criticize Drew Brees at all if he threw any interceptions, while dogging other players for lesser mistakes and blaming him for getting rid of Graham, Stills and others without replacing them at all, dooming the Saints to a losing season.
Payton the Addict?
And then it got personal. Galette claimed that the only reason the Saints had training camp in West Virginia was because Payton had a mistress there who he would cheat on his wife with. Payton and his wife of 20 years filed for divorce in 2012. Coincidence?
"Then there was the drug claims. Galette claimed that Payton was hooked on 'pain pills and popping molly' and once showed up to a team meeting drunk."
There were a whole host of other bombs being dropped by Galette including offensive tackle Zach Strief catching his wife cheating on him, implying that Kenny Stills and Vaccaro might have been gay, and that Brees is deteriorating.
