Linebacker Junior Galette has agreed to a three-year contract to remain with the New Orleans Saints.
Galette reached terms with the team on Saturday. He had been set to become a restricted free agent next week.
Galette was originally signed by New Orleans as an undrafted free agent out of Stillman College in 2010.
Galette has appeared in 32 games with two starts for the Saints.
In 2012, Galette appeared in 16 games with one start at left defensive end and finished with 22 tackles and a career-high five sacks.
After spending his first three seasons at defensive end, the Saints say Galette will move to linebacker in the new 3-4 alignment.

The Saints turned their attention to their key restricted free agents over the weekend, taking care of Junior Galette with a three year contract while giving 2nd round one year tenders to both center Brian de la Puente and running back Chris Ivory. The long term investment in Galette is one that wasn't necessary as the Saints could have simply stuck with a one year contract tender...
The New Orleans Saints have announced that they’ve reached an agreement with DE Junior Galette on a three-year deal.
The Saints reportedly tendered Galette before reaching an agreement.
Galette, 24, figures to play outside linebacker in the Saints’ new 3-4 defensive scheme. Last year, he tallied 22 tackles, a career-high five sacks, and one forced fumble.

To many tight end’s and even receivers in the NFL, finishing with 85 catches, 982 yards and nine touchdowns would be a solid season. For New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, it wasn’t necessarily the stats, but the surprising amount of dropped balls that put up a red flag.
His career-high 15 drops were on 100 targets of the dominant tight end.... Read more
If almost makes me sad that I can't add Tebucky Jones to this list (otherwise known as "TeSUCKY") because he was acquired by trade. I remember when the Saints landed him everyone acted like he would fix the defense and instead the Saints got the most inept and incapable football player I have ever seen. You think Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins look bad? Tebucky Jones...
Marques Colston, WR, New Orleans Saints
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Marques Colston is one of those players that I worry about each year thanks to injuries. Even though he statistically had one of his best years last year, 83 catches for 1154 yards and 10 touchdowns, he seemed to be lacking in burst and acceleration...
I was glass half empty yesterday, so we'll go glass half full today. Here are my top 15 free agent signings in team history. There was just too many good ones to stop at 10. Free agency started technically in 1989 with "Plan B" but it wasn't till '92-'93 that the full blown free agency the way we know it today existed. That said, the Saints did sign some...
This week I will be discussing several free agents I would like the Saints to look into signing, provided they have the cap space. The team needs (in my opinion) are LB, DE, CB, and S. Here are just a couple of free agents that I think the Saints would benefit pretty well from.
I will be going position by position in my team needs, starting with:
