Report: 49ers trade Parys Haralson to the Saints

According to the San Jose Mercury News,  the 49ers have traded linebacker Parys Haralson to the Saints.  We don’t know what the Niners received in return.

Outside linebacker Parys Haralson has been traded by the 49ers to the New Orleans Saints, according to multiple team sources.

Haralson bid farewell to his teammates in the locker room and declined to speak with reporters.

“He was a good mentor, taught me a lot and best of luck to him in New Orleans,” Aldon Smith said.

It’s was not immediately known what the 49ers got in return for the eighth-year veteran.

After losing Will Smith for the season to a torn ACL,  it looks like the Saints may try to have Haralson fill his role.
