Redskins' Junior Galette mocks Saints on social media

Washington Redskins defensive end Junior Galette ripped into his former team, the New Orleans Saints, in a series of videos posted on social media on Sunday.

"Oh, look at the 'Aints. How cute. They won their seven games ... and they're not in the playoffs," Galette said while pointing to the Saints' victory over the Atlanta Falcons on a TV.

"This time, while I'm at home, just like the 'Aints, I'm getting paid to be at home," said Galette, who is on injured reserve with a torn Achilles. "The 'Aints paying me, and I'm in the playoffs. ... One more (this is what's gonna hurt 'em): They owe me $5 million. Cut the check, Mickey [Loomis, the Saints' GM]. I'm gonna get it in March."

Galette also said Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is at the level Drew Brees was at when he first got to New Orleans and is "gonna be better than him." Galette said he has "love for mad people on that team. Terron [Armstead], [Kasim] Edebali, that's about it."

The Saints released Galette in July, less than one year after they signed him to a four-year, $41.5 million contract extension, because of character concerns off the field.

Among the contributing factors was Galette's involvement in a January incident in which he was accused of injuring a female houseguest while trying to get her to leave his home. He was initially arrested on a domestic violence charge, but the case was dismissed following an investigation. The NFL suspended Galette two games for his involvement in the incident.
