One less problem for Washington Redskins star Junior Galette -- he's officially off the hook in his New Orleans traffic case after striking a sweet plea deal with prosecutors.
TMZ Sports broke the story ... Galette was pulled over on July 7th in his Mercedes and cited for 3 traffic violations, including driving on a suspended license and an expired brake tag.
But we've learned ... Galette struck a deal in which he agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of driving without a license on his person ... and in exchange the other charges were dropped.
The punishment -- a $268.75 fine ... which Galette paid immediately.
Galette is still dealing with a civil suit filed by a woman who claims he injured her while kicking her out of his home in January 2015. Galette has denied any wrongdoing in that case.
