Parys Haralson

The 49ers signed Haggans, a 12-year veteran, to a one-year contract to take the backup role slotted for Parys Haralson, who underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn triceps on Aug. 28.


Didn't realize a torn tri could put you out that long........

Didn't the NFL approve a rule that allows players on IR to play that same year once healthy? Does that go into effect this season?

He was actually put on IR, the DAY BEFORE this option was to be available for all teams to use. curious

Might as well put Dixon at LB since we should have cut him and used his roster spot for an extra OLB.

Tolzien might be a better tackler however.

HMMM. We saved Dixon because we don't have the short yardage specialist until Jacobs can come back, but we get rid of all our OLB prospects, with no backups (until the 4th game when Haggins is available?) and one of the only two we do have is new to the position. I get it. Maybe Tolzien could be slated to back up both positions!?

Recover time for a fully torn triceps is 3-6 months. Putting Haralson on track for a week 12 return at the earliest, thus making the new 8 week IR exemption an unlikely choice. Haralson would likely be inactive or going 25-50% during the final weeks of the season and probably have little to no effect during the post season.

With him being a backup now and slated to never see the field barring injury I can see why we would go the proven veteran route for a whole season rather then risk exposing Haralson to more harm on the back end of the year.

to reiterate, we elected to put Haralson on IR the day before the new 8 week IR became available because he likely would've never seen the field anyway and it is not worth risking further harm to him when we could have a reliable veteran already going full speed by the time Haralson could even consider playing again.

Goldsmith first established himself as an actor in Western films, with 25 such appearances.[5] In the 1976 film The Shootist, Goldsmith played a villain who was shot between the eyes by hero John Wayne, who fired blood capsules from a special pellet gun at pointblank range into Goldsmith's face for seven painful takes.[5]

Haralson was an overpaid back up, but since this is a contract year for him, he's not going to get as much visibility in the open market next year. If he doesn't earn the huge paycheck, he'd be a nice piece of the puzzle to have back next year.

He's already on the Redskins' radar and will give him a huge starter money payday.

Ok fine he was over payed for a back up but he was a good football player for us and a pretty damn good backup for smith and brooks. I feel the team should have addressed this outside linebacker thing earlier in the draft than what they did. Yes i know they got two guys and yes no one is to blame for the injuries, I think it should have been addressed earlier in the draft. The front office also got damn lucky that higgins did not get suspended for todays game. I hope and pray that smith and brooks are 100 per cent so we do not have to rely on a 35 year old for more than just a few snaps against rogers

Anyone else really miss this guy? I wish we could go back to having him play the first two snaps and then bring in Aldon as the passrush specialist. Aldon is doing very well, but he had even more energy last year.
Would like to see a little more rotation just to keep him fresh but i dont miss haralason one bit
