The Rams are bringing in the veteran edge rusher for a visit tomorrow.

Veteran outside linebacker and pass-rushing specialist Junior Galette is set to visit the Los Angeles Rams tomorrow:

The 30-year old pass rusher spent the last three seasons in Washington with Head Coach Sean McVay (then offensive coordinator), and current Rams assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Barry (who was Galette’s defensive coordinator for two years).

Galette spent two of those three seasons on injured reserve with back-to-back unfortunate Achilles tears, though he returned in 2017 with a productive season as a pass-rushing specialist. Galette registered three sacks and a forced fumble.

Galette is an interesting (read: great) option for a Rams team looking to make a deep playoff run. They lack any true veteran presence at edge rusher with Samson Ebukam and Matt Longacre penciled-in as current starters, though Longacre has been held back thus far due to a biceps injury.

Galette has been a productive pass rusher throughout his career registering 34.5 sacks.
