Junior Galette probably shouldn’t have gotten a Redskins tattoo

Monday January 11th, 2016

Junior Gallete’s decision to get the Redskins logo tattooed on his upper arm probably wasn’t a good one, and not just because it’s a racist caricature. 

Galette spent this season under contract with Washington but he tore his Achilles tendon in August and didn’t play a single game. He’s also a free agent. He’s hoping to be back with the team next season but there’s obviously no guarantee. At least if he doesn’t get signed he’ll have a souvenir from his memorable tenure.

The internet had fun at the Vikings’ expense

This isn’t the first time Galette has had a team’s logo tattooed on him, either. In 2013, just a few months after signing a three-year deal with the Saints, Galette got the team’s fleur de lis emblem inked on his bicep. 

And then he got cut two years later after video surfaced of him hitting people with a belt on a beach
