It's been an interesting week for Junior Galette, to say the very.

The linebacker was released by the New Orleans Saints less than a year after signing a massive new contract because the team was fed up of his bad attitude and finally had enough. Galette then went on an unbelievable rant that stunned everyone.

Well, one team wasn't put off by any of this and decided to sign Galette, with a deal being announced earlier today.

Skins Signing

According to a statement from the team's official website, the Washington Redskins penned a one-year contract with Junior Galette. Of course it was the Redskins, of course.

"The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed free agent linebacker Junior Galette. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. In addition, the team waived linebacker Ja’Gared Davis from its Non-Football Injury list," the statement from the Redskins read.

According to a report from Albert Breer, Galette signed on for the veteran's minimum in what is a big surprise, but when he managed to fleece nearly $20million from the Saints in the past 10 months alone you can understand why.

The Rant

As we mentioned earlier, Galette went on an unbelievable Twitter rant after leaving the Saints that left all-comers completely dumb-founded.

Galette claimed that the only reason the Saints had training camp in West Virginia was because head coach Sean 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. Was it a coincidence? Who knows

And then there were the claims that Payton was a drug addict..

"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' arm is seriously deteriorating.

Are Jay Gruden and Washington ready for the great storm of hell-fire that is coming their way? Let's hope so and let's hope that history doesn't repeat itself, because you're damn well sure we will all know about it.
