Report: Parys Haralson on the trade block


The 49ers are talented on defense, and deep.

They’re now hoping to turn some of that depth into something else.

According to Matt Maiocco of, the 49ers are shopping outside linebacker Parys Haralson in trade talks.

Haralson already took a pay cut this offseason, but they apparently want to cut that number even further.

Starters Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks give them an excellent tandem, and between veteran Dan Skuta and rookie Corey Lemonier, they have solid backup options.

The 29-year-old Haralson has 21.5 career sacks, and missed last year after tearing a triceps muscle.

    The Lions should take a look at him.


    For what? The Lions have enough depth at DE, and Haralson doesn’t fit the mold at that spot regardless. He isn’t a fit at OLB in the Lions 43 scheme.

    I’d rather get Paris Hilton.

  3. He will be a starter on just about any other team….let’s hope they get something good for him.

  4. good solid player, been a good 49er…like to see him stick around but if we can get something for him guess you gotta do it, someone will be getting a solid player, he has looked good in the preseason coming off the injury

  5. This article doesn’t highlight his run stopping ability nearly enough. This guy can ‘seal the edge’ as good as anyone in the league, and would be a welcome addition to any defense in need of a DE or OLB.

    The only reason SF doesn’t keep him is because they have zero room for nearly half their draft class. These are brutal roster maneuvers, because they’re all good NFL football players.

  6. @ aaroncurryisbust
    13-6 in a seaturd loss to the niners where Wilson posted his LOWEST QBR of the season, scored ZERO TD’s and threw one interception.

  7. Parys has been wrecking it this pre season and it would be great to retain him for depth. But if we can get some picks or something decent from a trade then we have to do what’s best for the TEAM.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

  8. @detectivejimmymcnulty…… I’m glad I’m not the only one. The dude has multiple personalities and is a “fan” of about 5 or 6 different teams. His shtick is always the same: weak and pathetic.

  9. I wonder if the seahawks are doing the same with Cb’s, this dude can ball and their are literally 6 starting caliber cbs on th seahawks.

    Are these ploys to prevent rivals from picking up your players? Seriously does that not make the most sense.

  10. You guys are morons. There’s more than one reason to trade a player. Parys Haralson is a pretty good OLB. So good in fact, that Aldon Smith was coming off the bench because of him his rookie year.

    P-Town has looked extremely good this offseason, and after asking him to take a pay cut I think they realize that he’s definitely starter material on somebody’s team, just not the 49ers because of Aldon and Brooks. By letting him go to another team, he’ll have one more chance at a big payday since he’s 29 years old and the 49ers can mold Lemonier who’s a rookie. It has the potential to be a win-win for everyone involved

  11. to richie saurus, if the guy is so good why did they draft smith no. 1 in 2011 and sign cinc guy in 08. sounds like 49ers gm was not that high on the guy…hmm

  12. Would love to see him in a Texans uniform, they need some help at OLB. Brooks Reed has the most experience and he is only starting his 3rd year!

  13. Hawks HAVE NO IDEA how rookie good Corey Lemonier is. He’s scary fast, smart and was drafted for the sole purpose of spying Wilson and his silly scrambling.

    The simple fact is, the 2013 49er draft is so deep and so supreme, it will keep the Niners securely in front of the division rivals for years to come. Carradine and Lattimore aren’t even going to play this year! Muhhahahahahahaha. Keep squawking Seahawks.

    What did you get in the ’13 draft? Oh, wait. You mortgaged your future for Percy! Muhahahahahahaha

  14. to answer sdakota Haralson is a decent pass rusher but an excellent run defender. The 9ers saw Aldon as the best value at the pick and would be a boost to the pass rush so they took him to groom to be the starter. Also the old addage “You can never have too many pass rushers” always rings true.

  15. The guy is talented, excellent run stopper with good size but he had a big cap number before the paycut which means it’ll probably be bigger next year if he’s still on the team.
    Just like in madden Franchise Mode… Ya gotta move em

  16. @ that delusional Seatwat homer that posts on every 9er article get a job, a life, a clue. Haralson was on IR for the season last year. I can’t wait when the Seahags lose to Carolina week 1 & the 9ers thump them week 2! #Aaroncurryisbust you are the biggest “Buster”on this site!

  17. I doubt they trade him to the Saints because they play the Saints this season. Wouldn’t want to assist an opponent in an area of weakness (lost they’re starting OLB for the year)

  18. Man, I always trust in Harbaugh but I dont know if Im a fan of this move. The injury bug has been biting us this year so far and its a good thing to have a starting caliber OLB waiting in the wings. why not rotate him and Ahmad… I don’t like trading him.

  19. How is he in coverage? Would love the Eagles to trade for him. We are very thin at OLB since we are moving to a 3-4 defense, and we have the 9ers old director of player personnel in Tom Gamble. Haralson could come right in and start over Cole or Graham….. Whoever the Eagles decide to throw out there, and I imagine would be much better.

  20. I wouldn’t trade him for anything less than a fourth rounder, maybe 5th. He looks hungry after missing last year and by trading him the niners wouldn’t be saving any more than getting rid of skuta. I know skuta is more of a ST player, but I see haralyson being a lot more valuable. The Johnson kid looks alright to at olb after not playing last year. Somebody is going to get a good olb from the niners, because they aren’t keeping 10 olb’s.
