Amid the upheaval in Cleveland today, the Browns are continuing with their scheduled workouts. They hosted free agent pass rusher Junior Galette for a Monday audition, Sirius XM Radio’s Adam Caplan tweets.
Galette’s been a free agent since his Washington contract expired after last season. He turned down a chance to reunite with the Redskins and has expressed regret for doing so. Since, the 30-year-old edge defender has met with the Rams and Colts.
New Browns HC Gregg Williams has a history with Galette. Williams was with the Saints when they added Galette as a UDFA in 2010 and coached him for two seasons before his ignominious New Orleans exit. Galette was a backup with the Saints during Williams’ final two years as their DC but went on to star for future New Orleans defenses.
After missing all of the 2015 and ’16 seasons due to injuries, Galette played in all 16 Redskins games last season. He registered three sacks. Behind starting defensive ends Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah, the Browns have rookie Chad Thomas and veterans Anthony Zettel and Chris Smith.
