Former 49ers linebacker Parys Haralson passes away at age 37

Sep 13, 2021 at 5:02 PM--


Multiple sources report that former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Parys Haralson has passed away at the age of 37. The cause of death has not been disclosed.

"The 49ers are heartbroken and shocked by the news of Parys' tragic passing," the team said via a statement. "Parys was a beloved member of our organization that lived life with an extraordinary amount of passion and joy, while leaving an indelible mark on everyone he came across. We extend our condolences to Parys' family and loved ones."

The 49ers made Haralson a fifth-round draft pick out of Tennessee in 2006. He spent seven seasons with the team before two seasons (2013-14) with the New Orleans Saints. The linebacker recorded 275 tackles, 49 tackles for a loss, 63 quarterback hits, 28 sacks, and five passes defensed during his nine NFL seasons, per Pro Football Reference.

After his playing days, Haralson spent three years with the 49ers as the team's director of player engagement, where he reported to Keena Turner.

Below are tweets from two of his former 49ers teammates.

Age is nothing but a number for 33-year-old CB Josh Norman, who is quickly fitting in with the 49ers

Josh Norman may be at an age that is often associated with decline when it comes to NFL cornerbacks, but he isn't about to let it stand in the way of doing what the 49ers expect from him in the weeks ahead. In 2015, Norman was voted as a first-team All-Pro with the Carolina Panthers and was regarded as one of the elite cornerbacks in the league. But now, at age 33, Norman is one of the older active players at his position and is the oldest defensive player on the 49ers' roster (38-year-old kicker Robbie Gould and 35-year-old center Alex Mack are the only 49ers players older than Norman). If you're surprised to read that little factoid, so was Norman when it was presented to him during his post-practice media session on Thursday. "That's crazy,"



49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays



49ers-Packers: Aaron Rodgers seems to have no ill will left over 49ers snub, used play invented on Thursday in comeback win

Aaron Rodgers was visibly overjoyed Sunday night after leading the Green Bay Packers to a last-second 30-28 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Levi's Stadium -- a game that saw him at use a play during the game-winning drive that he helped invent just three days earlier. But it seemed afterwards like his happiness stemmed simply from leading the Packers to an improbable win and not from any lingering motivation against the 49ers for their decision to pass him up in the 2005 NFL Draft. The 49ers had the first overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft but used it to select Alex Smith instead of Rodgers, who fell in the Packers' lap at pick 24 overall. Rodgers, who grew up in Chico, California and



The lesson George Kittle, 49ers learned from closer-than-it-should-have-been win vs. Lions

The 49ers won in a thrilling, yet somewhat alarming way Sunday, as they went to Detroit to face the Lions and wound up victorious with a 41-33 final score. During the first quarter and a half of the game, the Lions kept it fairly close, losing only 14-10, but the 49ers pulled away in the second and third quarters, leading 38-10 at one point. In fact, with just under six minutes remaining, the 49ers led by 24 points, but a collapse, influenced by multiple defensive injuries, gave the Lions a chance to tie the game, as they reached the SF 24 yard line down just eight points, but failed to score. After the game, George Kittle shared the lesson that he and the team learned from this surprisingly close win, speaking to the level of talent in the
