METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette says he expects to meet with NFL officials within a month to discuss his offseason arrest stemming from a domestic disturbance at his New Orleans-area home.

Prosecutors have dropped the case against Galette and his female accuser's attorney has withdrawn from a related civil lawsuit, leaving the Saints' 2014 sack leader optimistic his meeting with the league will go well.

Under the NFL's personal conduct policy, a player arrested for domestic violence could receive a six-game suspension for a first offense.

Galette says he'd like to apologize to fans who were unhappy with his off-the-field conduct and that he owes it to the Saints to respond well to adversity.

Galette is rehabilitating a pectoral injury and says he hopes to be ready by the preseason.
