What has Haralson done lately to make him ok at $2.45M this season.
2009 when he got his new deal he got 5 sacks, 2010 4 and 2011 2, prior in 2008 he had 8, he dropped off every year.
I don't see how he is great run stopper, he doesn't have high tackle numbers. is His best season tackle wise was 2009 with 45 tackles, he has had 4 tackles(06), 42(07), 39(08), 45(09), 42(2010) and 30(2011). That isn't great production for a player making over 2.5M a year.
He is just like what happened with Shawntae Spencer, got a big deal, then went to s**t. Sopoaga did it too, till he finally woke up and played great last year.
People flip flop over salary issues. 1 day it's need to save, then money isn't an issue, when it is. Less than 900K right now under the cap, and doesn't look good in 2013, 3.3M under. Can't even sign draft class with 3.3M, and then retain any of the free agents, Moss, Jacobs, Sopoaga, Goldson, Walker, RJF.
Fans are in for a rude awakening in 2013, we kept all 11 starters plus Aldon, but in 2013, Goldson and Sopoaga could be sent packing. Every team is going through this with the flat cap issue.
