Kristian: Saints trade for help at LB position

Alex Smith, Parys Haralson
The New Orleans Saints have made a trade to acquire San Francisco 49ers LB Parys Haralson, according to league sources.

No word yet on what the Saints will give up in return.

The move comes on the same day in which reports surfaced indicating Saints OLB Will Smith is done for the year following a knee injury sustained in the Houston game.

The 6' 0'' Haralson, a product of Tennessee,  is in his 8th year in the league. 

He missed all of 2012 with a torn tricep, after starting every game in 2011.  In 2008, he led the NFC West with eight sacks.  

I can tell you that he was an integral part of a defense that is widely regarded around the NFL.  Obviously, his experience in San Fran's 3-4 scheme was a plus in his favor. 

Saints fans should be envious of the Niners' depth at LB, given that they can trade away a proven veteran LB like this.

BIG ED from Thibodaux
I think Sean Payton always seems to find a player out there in times of need. A. Real good player. That is what a good leader can do. A real football guy. We all need to enjoy the moment with Payton , brees , and all the super talent we have. These arethe good times!! Sorry for Big Will... He is an awesome player

Not bad, let's see what happens. Let's play some football!!!

Will Smith looked really trimmed down this preseason. You can tell he put the work in this offseason to move from DE to OLB. Get well Will. Would be great if we have both these guys next year for some defensive depth.
08/26/2013 11:27PM
Well he can't be any worse than what they have now, and how long do we have to watch harper and Jenkins running around like they are chasing butterflies? These two would have been cut a long time ago by any other team. If fans can see it why can't coaches

kenneth on the westbank
Will we ever have another 09 defence? This guy was an integral part of a defence that knocked us out.

I love the move..he is very good on the run andon 3rd down martez wilson can come in and rush passer
08/27/2013 10:12AM
What about depth
We are having trouble keeping starters healthy...hopefully this trade will be at the least a gap fill but we need "great" starters and depth at this position!

Great addition we won da Super Bowl with slow Shanle n Fujita so this guy will be an upgrade from dat
08/28/2013 6:58AM
