Junior Galette has been at war with the National Football League for years now.
He is now taking it to the next level.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Galette is suing several NFL teams, the league and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
“In a 21-page lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Galette sued the league, the NFL Players Association, Commissioner Roger Goodell, and several teams — the Seahawks, Rams, Raiders, Browns, Chiefs, Panthers, and Commanders,” Pro Football Talk said. “Galette, who spent eight years in the NFL, represents himself.”
In a filing to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Galette said he has been blocked from rejoining the NFL “just like Colin Kaepernick and put on the blacklist by the NFL owners.”
In 2018, Galette posted on Snapchat “I swear to god I’m not playing for no slave deals I’ll die before I play for more slave deals” after he was offered a smaller contract by the Commanders than his white teammate.
Galette is seeking $300 million in damages.
Galette’s Twitter bio reads: “Former Saints Team Captain that is Blackballed from the NFL for calling out Pay Discrimination Community Revolution In Progress.”
The 34-year-old spent six seasons in the NFL between the New Orleans Saints (2010-14) and Commanders (2017), accumulating 148 tackles and 34.5 sacks in 80 career games.
