The Rams could be close to adding Junior Galette.

The 30-year-old free agent linebacker is set to meet with Los Angeles on Monday. Rams coach Sean McVay told the Orange County Register there’s a “good possibility” the team will sign Galette after his visit.

Galette spent last season with the Redskins where he recorded 20 total tackles and three sacks in 16 games.

The 2010 undrafted free agent appeared in 64 games and recorded 31 1/2 sacks with New Orleans over five seasons.

Galette missed the 2015 and 2016 seasons because of multiple Achilles injuries. But he signed a one-year contract with the Redskins in February and returned in 2017.

Galette said in an Instagram post in May he had received contract offers from three teams but was considering retiring.
