49ers trade linebacker Parys Haralson to Saints

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the trade says the San Francisco 49ers have sent linebacker Parys Haralson to the New Orleans Saints, who are in desperate need at the position as a pair of would-be starters are sidelined with knee injuries.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday night because neither team had announced the trade. It wasn't clear what compensation the 49ers would receive in return.

Haralson departed San Francisco team headquarters Monday night after saying his goodbyes before the team began a late practice, acknowledging that he had been traded while providing no further details other than, "I'm outta here."

Saints outside linebacker Will Smith will be sidelined for the season with a knee injury, a person familiar with the situation said. Victor Butler also is recovering from knee surgery that will sideline him most or all of the season.

The Mercury News first reported the trade was with New Orleans.

    At some point we know that finding the successor to Drew Brees will be the New Orleans Saints’ top priority. What we don’t know is when that time will be. Personally, I don’t think it’s 2017. I’m not particularly enamored with anyone in the draft class and the need at quarterback hasn’t become an absolute must just yet. Next year’s crop could be better and there are some notable signal callers (Jimmy Garropolo, A.J. McCarron) scheduled to hit...more>>
