Last week, the New Orleans Saints released outside linebacker Junior Galette following various off-the-field issues, including video of a beach brawl back in 2013. The Saints decided enough was enough and are taking a sizable cap hit in making the decision. They will face a cap hit of $5.35 million this season, and then $12.1 million in 2016. Clearly they were fed up.
Things took an intriguing turn over the weekend. Galette apparently decided it was time to go on a rant about the Saints. Galette deleted his own Twitter account, but then decided to go on his girlfriend's Twitter account. The tweets were deleted, but nothing on social media is ever lost forever. Our friends at Canal Street Chronicles have various screenshots.
I did not plan on doing anything with this, but then upon reading their article, it turns out the 49ers are moderately involved. The tweet sounds like it is from his girlfriend, but it is hard to tell exactly where her tweets end and his begin. But, whomever did it decided to talk some smack about Ahmad Brooks. I'm not entirely sure why he (or she) decided to tweet specifically about Brooks, but there you have it.
If you're interested in the dirty laundry of the New Orleans Saints locker room, Canal Street Chronicles has all the tweets. And they do get rather raunchy.
