Colts Work Out Junior Galette, Thomas Rawls

Junior Galette‘s spent the first six games of the season as a free agent, publicly lamenting his misstep in spurning a Redskins offer earlier this offseason.

The Colts are taking a look at the veteran edge defender, Adam Schefter of reports (on Twitter), while also examining Thomas Rawls.

Galette previously auditioned for the Rams, but the edge rusher-thin juggernaut opted not to sign him over the summer. He missed all of the 2015 and ’16 seasons because of preseason injuries but returned last year to play in 16 games for Washington. The 30-year-old defender best known for delivering back-to-back 10-plus-sack seasons with the Saints — in 2013-14 — registered three sacks last season.

The Colts have received some unexpected pass-rushing contributions this season. Linebacker Darius Leonard and suddenly rejuvenated defensive end Margus Hunt each have four sacks for Indianapolis, with young journeyman Jihad Ward registering three. Jabaal Sheard also has three sacks for the Colts. However, Indianapolis was without both Hunt and Denico Autry (two sacks) on Sunday.

Rawls played in one game this season, with the Bengals, but has not been able to re-establish his career away from Seattle.
