He was one of them because of us easing our #7 overall pick into the game, now that guy is ready to play on an every down basis, Haralson sounds expendable at $2.5Million when he is expected to see the field on 3rd down only if not less then that. He'll need to rework his deal, we didn't draft 2 day 2 talent OLBs for no reason last week. Haralson faces an uphill battle, he has only the slightest of edges over Cam Johnson to make the final 53.
Haralson is one of 3 outside linebackers with any game experience on our roster. He is excellent defending the run and can rush the passer. He isn't going anywhere.
I'm not doubting his skill, I'm doubting his expected playing time versus his contract value, can we justify paying our #3 or maybe even #4 OLB by the time camp ends a $2.5M salary? My gut says no, which is why I expect him to rework his deal, even if it is only converting it into a roster bonus. He'll more then likely be on the team come week 1 but it is not an entirely sure thing either.
