Agent says Junior Galette agrees to 1-year deal with Washington

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Pass rusher Junior Galette's agent says the outside linebacker has agreed to a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins for the league minimum.     

Agent Alvin Keels says on Twitter on Friday that Galette "is grateful for the second chance he is being afforded."     

The agreement comes less than a week after Galette was released by the Saints because of off-field problems.     

Galette was arrested in January after an alleged domestic dispute. Charges were dropped, but the episode remains under review by the NFL. The league also is reviewing a video which shows a man resembling Galette in a fight on a beach.     

A Redskins spokesman said he could not confirm an agreement with Galette.     

As a player entering his sixth NFL season, Galette is due a $745,000 salary on a league-minimum deal.
