Free-agent linebacker Junior Galette is considering retirement.

Galette wrote on his Instagram account that he has received interest from teams but is not sure if he wants to continue playing.

"The real reason I haven't signed is because I've contemplated retiring," Galette wrote. "I have 3 Deals Currently on the table and will Plan Accordingly. All my fans i promise this will be my Best I'm not saying nothing else."

Galette had 20 tackles and three sacks for the Washington Redskins last season. He missed the two previous seasons with two torn Achilles tendons.

In the 2013-14 seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Galette totaled 22 sacks.

Galette visited the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns earlier this offseason, but did not strike a deal.

Galette spent the first five seasons of his career from 2010-14 with the Saints, totaling 88 tackles and 31.5 sacks in 64 games.

He was released by the Saints less than a year into a new four-year, $41.5 million contract due to behavioral concerns.

In early 2015, he was arrested and charged with simple battery involving domestic violence after allegedly pushing a woman to the ground while attempting to get her to leave his home.

Those charges were later dropped, but Galette was still suspended two games by the NFL over the incident.

Additionally, a 2013 video appeared to show Galette hitting a woman with a belt during a group confrontation on a beach. No charges were filed from that incident.

Galette was also arrested in April 2017 for disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders after getting into a fight and running away during a spring break festival in Biloxi, Miss.
