Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan described ex-New Orleans Saints pass rusher Junior Galette as "half-crazy" in an interview this past Tuesday with CSN Washington.

"I sat him down for two hours. We were face to face. We were both sweating," McCloughan said of his initial meeting with Galette after the Saints cut him. "He's half-crazy. But that's OK. He's a football player."

Last week, the lawyer for Galette said a lawsuit accusing the pass rusher of trapping a woman in an abusive relationship has been dismissed. Galette had filed a motion seeking to dismiss the case, arguing the lawsuit was not detailed enough to permit him to mount a meaningful defense.

The woman didn't hire a lawyer to represent her after her first one quit months ago, and she did not show up for a hearing on Galette’s motion before Jefferson Parish Judge Donnie Rowan dismissed the case.

After the Saints cut him, Galette signed a one-year deal with the Redskins for the league's minimum salary.
