Eli Harold, a linebacker who was on the roster bubble in San Francisco, will get a chance to make the roster in Detroit.

The 49ers have traded Harold to the Lions for a conditional 2020 draft pick, Kyle Meinke of MLive reports.

The 49ers took Harold in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft, and he has played in all 48 games over the three seasons since then. He started 10 games last year and was also in the starting lineup for both of the 49ers’ preseason games this year.

Harold had previously kneeled during the national anthem with teammates Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid, but he has been standing for the anthem this preseason. He declined to explain why when reporters asked him about that.

  1. stucats– you clearly care more about denying constitutional rights than football. Guess you won’t be watching any games on ESPN this season, either, since they aren’t televising the anthem.

  2. Harold was drafted as a pass rusher to replace Aldon Smith. Total bust. He showed zero ability to get after the QB during his time here.

    I paid $200.00 to order the NFL Sunday Ticket, so the main purpose of this is to watch FOOTBALL not a bunch of morons on their knee’s, i don’t care about constitutional rights, they should do it on their own time and not anywhere near the football field so it’s not a distraction to the football fans who tune it to watch FOOTBALL.

  4. Bummer. Seemed like a good kid who was always working hard to do whatever team asked of him. Never quite developed or made an impact. Wish him luck in Detroit.

  5. Stucats apparently doesn’t care that his statements about him not caring about their constitutional right, and that they should do it on their own time exemplify some of the problems that these minority athletes are protesting.
    Telling people who feel oppressed and/or discriminated against how and when to protest is laughable. Why do you get to tell them how to protest?? Because you didn’t pay $200 to watch them take a knee?? Then look away while you’re sitting in your recliner while the anthem is played. Go to the bathroom. Get a drink from the kitchen. It’s two minutes. Get over yourself.
    There’s no hypocrisy whatsoever in a person voicing his negative opinion about an athlete’s decision to SILENTLY protest, right? You’re allowed to protest their taking a knee because you “don’t want to see it”, but they aren’t allowed to take a knee to protest the murders of unarmed black men and social injustice?
    I hope you and all the other people who respect the flag and anthem so much are standing in front of your television during EVERY National Anthem prior to every game you ever watch. If not, you’re a complete hypocrite.

    Guess trade talks for K. Mack or D. Fowler are going well for the 49ers?

    There is zero chance of the Raiders trading Mack across the bay. Zero. I’m not even a Raiders fan, but that would be an absolute PR nightmare

  7. This makes we want to puke ……who cares , how is this relevant to the trade and how does it even become a stat that is worth mentioning ……Having running tallies of who took a knee and when or who stayed in the locker room so it is reported that 2 players stayed inside the tunnel or took a knee and how this is still very much a hot topic, but it is never reported that out of the 180 players in the game 178 did what they were supposed to do….Why are they reporting the 1.2 % as being news unless it is all agenda driven ……….disgusting

  8. @Stucat – The irony. a lot of the same players taking a knee were the same “morons” you paid $200 to watch play. lol

  9. Eli Harold! Wow! The Lions chances of winning a Super Bowl just increased dramatically! Maybe he was a bubble player in San Francisco, but in Detroit he’s a starting caliber LB. He’ll get blown out by run blockers and blow pass coverage just like the other Lions starting LBs. Congrats to Eli!

    Get a grip dude. I wonder how many of these players that take a knee, spend free time working for the cause. Probably not many. The majority choose to do it on the NFL’s, and everybody else’s dime.

    It is better to stay silent and let people believe your an idiot, rather that open your mouth (type on keyboard) and prove it…

    An employer has the right to tell a employee not to do or say something. The “constitutional right” you are attempting to claim is improperly applied.

    The 1st amendment states Congress shall make no laws abridging the freedom of speech

    Unless the NFL is Congress are attempting to pass a LAW, your point is well, pointless…

  12. Stucats spends more time trolling the 49er board than he does posting on his own team board. Eli Harold is no longer on the team because he just isn’t good at all. He is a one dimensional player who cannot pass rush at all.

    that’s correct bobby, cause the Niners are very overrated led by their q.b. Jimmy G.

  14. stucats. it is Dak Prescott that is way overrated. He is a very poor man’s alex smith type game manager that has already getting exposed last year and this year with the Arlington Cowgirls offensive line going down will show just how mediocre he is along with the Cowgirl’s fortunes.

    bobby, you sound like a typical forty-whiner fan from Clara……Dak’s record as a starter is 22-10, how is that “way overrated” as you put it?, he took his team to the playoffs in his rookie season by winning 13 games and last season he was missing his star running back for 6 games and his left tackle for a few games as well, that’s huge.

    What the heck has Jimmy G proven?, the guy has made a total of 7 starts in his career and he is making 27 million per year, that’s a joke!, he’s way overpaid and way overrated at the same time.

    talk to me when the forty-whiners make the playoffs.

  16. Stutacs. lol. Typical Arlington Cowgirl fan. This isn’t tennis or golf. All Dak Prescott had was the best oline, RB, and WRs. Now that his cast is going down, you can see his play sliding big time. He is an overrated game manager and his play is going down the drain like the Arlington Cowyboys season
