Three days ago New Orleans Saints defensive end Junior Galette sent out a post on his Twitter account that didn’t make many in his fanbase too happy to see as he’s listed to be a restricted free agent this season.

Galette sent this tweet out:

"“I just Got Low Balled Lol That’s just #Disrespectful”"

Speculation was that it was the Saints that Galette was referring to as the source of being given a not so favorable contract.’s Larry Holder, engaged in a Twitter conversation with’s Jordan Grove, said that in speaking to Galette the previous week that the defensive lineman wanted a three year deal.

This morning Galette sent this message on his Twitter account:

"“Last time I shed tears ova Pain….#April22nd2010 my name wasn’t called 3Yrs Later Im About to shed #Tears On A #NEWDEAL #BLESSED”"

Fans began to celebrate and congratulated him and I even asked if he had gotten his new deal.  However Galette hasn’t responded in a 100% yes or no on if he’s staying with the Saints or not.  The 2010 undrafted free agent  made great strides since joining the team and has registered 43 tackles, 9.5 sacks, and one forced fumble.
