I was pissed when I heard the news earlier this morning. But his value is pretty high right now. Haralson is better than Aldon, and most LBs in this league, against the run...and Haralson can rush the passer.
I think after Denver lost Drumerville to the Ravens with that contract mistake, and lost Von Miller for the half of the season... they would be on the top of the list of teams asking about him.
the reason I think the 9ers would want to do it now is because Parys is obviously on the last year of his contract...and he will get paid much much more going to different team...so I don't we will resign him. SO if you are going to lose him anyway, and you have this young draft pick that has showed potential who will for sure be on this team....well then you want this draft pick to get as much reps as possible through out the season and practice.
slippery slope though...if we are trying to win a SuperBowl this year should we take that chance? Will a 4th round pick be worth it? (I don't think a team will give more, even though imo he is worth it)
its tough, but I'd like for us to keep him...and worry about the draft later...there is a point where you have make an exception on the penny pinching.
Are we talking about the same Parys Haralson????
I don't think anyone would question that Parys was one of our best, when it came to holding the edge and stopping the run.....and that he can rush the passer, not as good as Aldon and Brooks, but he is good as well.
And yes I think Denver would love to get a proven OLB, because of their current situation.
as far as his worth... That is just me. I'd give him up for a 3rd round pick sure....but 4th round or 5th, etc? I just feel it would be more important for our SuperBowl run for us to be stacked depth wise...especially with a proven vet like Parys....this is not a journey man LB, he can be starting and playing well for another team imo.
Luv Parys, but he's just average, and that's before taking last year off. When he was at his best, he only averaged around 26 solo tackles per year (2007-2011) and a little over 4 sacks per year, bumped up mostly by 2008 when he had 8 sacks. Since then, he's barely averaged over 3 sacks per year. That's Tully Banta-Cain territory.
Like I've said many times in this thread, I'm not saying PH is useless, because he's not. I'm saying he's an older player coming off injury, is very average production-wise and has been for quite some time now and has no position-flexibility...that makes him extremely replaceable. Might some other team want him? Probably...but those numbers are very average to start with, and that was before the injury that kept him out an entire season. So how valuable is a nearly 30 year-old, average-producing OLB coming off a yearlong injury layoff with 1 year left on his restructured deal?
I'd say maybe a 7th rounder and pray for a 6th?
