What can the Saints do to unload Junior Galette?

After our friends at Canal Street Chronicles dropped an investigative bomb on Junior Galette, let there be no more doubt that this video below is of him.

WATCH: New Orleans Saints Safety Jairus Byrd With the One-Handed Catch Off the Jugs Machine

If you think about it, it is a little surprising that we don't see more one-handed catch videos featuring some of the NFL's finest defensive backs.
