Haralson....

I, for one, am dissapointed. Please correct me if I am wrong, but a 7th round draft pick is essentially garbage. And Haralson is playing very well and may have been useful down the stretch.

Something is better than nothing. Seems to me like Baalke was "taking care" of Parys. They traded him to a team that will be competitive and a place where he will be a starter right off the bat and able to land a bigger payday for free agency. Not saying its true, but with how Parys handled himself with the media seems like it was the best situation for all parties involved. If he was pissed he would of straight out said "I got traded" instead he said he would let the front office handle that announcement and he still towed the company line.

Also I guess since most of these guys are 7 and later they are all garbage.

Oh stop it.

I want to say thank you to Parys. He was always a solid, not outstanding, player that gave max effort. I was really excited watching him this preseason because he had his beast mode on and playing better than I had ever seen him. I was psyched and thought he would be an outstanding backup. I am surprised, almost shocked, that he wasn't going to make the roster. I wish him well and hopes he does awesome with the Saints (except when we play them). Thanks Parys!

Well, let us not forget, they were the same fanbase that decided wearing a paper bag on the head would make the pain/misery disappear (delusional).

ALSO, once their new starter/Parys begins tearing it up, they'll all be talking crap on how dumb Niners were for letting him go and commence sucking each others cocks/pee pee

Never bought Will Smith as an OLB. He was already becoming sub-par as a DE with age. Parys is probably a better fit for them in their 3-4.

Good night now...........

I'm confused. Since when was Parys Haralson this impact pass rusher that would have solved our pass rushing woes late last season when Aldon and Justin got hurt? HE'S NOT. That's why we drafted Lemonier, and you can actually see his pass rush ability pop off your TV screen. No way is Parys a better situational pass rusher than Corey, and no way is he a better ST player than Skuta. Parys was an extra body with no clear role. That's why he was traded.

Yeah I'm really confused with all this hysteria caused by the loss of a backup LB. Everyone's been all over Lemonade's D for the past 2 months since we drafted him, then all the sudden the backup who'd be blocking him in the depth chart is traded (who hasn't even played for over a year) and everyone is freaking out? I don't get it.
But the question remains....why MUST the niners cut Haralson? He was playing well (very well). He would be a very useful backup if on of the starters went down.

I think I figured it out, however....

Special teams! More emphasis is being placed on special teams and room needs to be made on the 53 for players who are primarily ST contributors. Thus, the need to cut Haralson.

Simple. Last year we lacked OLB depth and our pass rush suffered. This year we had a stable of them, and now one is gone. So we are relying on a rookie and Skuta to provide the depth. Yes, Lemonaire looks great, but he is still a rookie. I think he'll be great, but is he ready to start if Aldon or Brooks goes down? Is Skuta? We know Haralson was.

Its the offseason, time to freak out!!!!!

Fair. But what personnel decision has Baalke made that hasn't turned out to be a stroke of genius? Re-signing Carlos Rogers? Sure, but he was a steal his first year. Drafting Jenkins? Yes, that's about it. I really don't want to sit here and list out all the good moves he's made.

Combine everyone's boner for Lemonade with Baalke's track record, and I don't think there should be a problem with depth, considering we have 2 pro bowl caliber OLB's at the moment. Any backup would unlikely get any PT regardless, so might as well have Lemonade get the snaps when they are available. And if losing a backup OLB means a better chance at re-signing Crabs, Iupati and Kaep, that's the end of discussion.
Sad to see him go.
A quality guy who put in the work, remained professional and gave his all. I realize that its business, but to me he was the quintessential Niner.
All the best to him going forward.

I agree Parys would have been our best option if we needed a starter to fill in for Aldon/Ahmad and play base downs. But I don't think he could have done anything to improve our pass rush last year or this year. I don't think he's a good pass rusher at all. Lemonier looks to be a far more explosive edge rusher than Haralson, and could excel in a situational role. I don't see a role for Parys as a reserve. At least Skuta is a special teams ace to justify his spot as 4th OLB.
The move is good for harralson cuz he wouldn't have played with us. We got a seventh .. But I bet he wishes he wouldn't have restructured his deal. Dude lost some paper.. Though he does stand a better chance at getting a better deal next year with the playing time he will see in NO( and the bench he woulda saw in sf (
With that said I think this is amahds year to get ten plus sacks

its a money move man. lemonaid and skuta are cheaper and look great. harelson made good money. he was gonna get cut anyway cuz they werent gonna keep five OLBs most likely. sucks cuz parys was great for us over the years and awesome depth but it comes down to saving cap space for all the future FAs were gonna have and Kaep's megadeal
