49ers hire Parys Haralson as director of player engagement

May 10, 2016 at 10:49 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced the hiring of former team linebacker Parys Haralson as director of player engagement.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee states that the position is designed to help players transition in and out of the NFL. He also noted that Haralson was on hand for the team's rookie minicamp, which concluded over this past weekend. The position will assist players with life skills development, financial education, post career and occupational development, continued education, and degree completion, per 49ers.com.

"Parys is a young man who represented himself and our organization very well, both on and off the field," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. "Less than two years removed from the game, Parys has great knowledge of what players experience in today's NFL and what is needed for them to be successful in their professional and personal lives. We look forward to our team benefitting from his insight and support."

Haralson was drafted out of Tennessee by the 49ers in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played with the team through the 2012 season before being traded to the New Orleans Saints, where he would finish his career. He had 267 tackles, 28 sacks, and three forced fumbles during that career.

Following his two seasons with the Saints, the 49ers brought Haralson in for a workout in 2015, but nothing came of it.

For those who may have doubted, George Kittle has repeatedly said that his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Nick Bosa, is pretty good at football. Unfortunately, fans didn't see much of the defensive end in his second NFL season, as his sophomore campaign was cut short by an ACL injury. While injury after injury followed Bosa's, the loss of the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was greatly felt throughout the roster. San Francisco finished with just six wins after entering the season with Super Bowl aspirations. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and was asked which 49ers player he is most excited to see on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He answered before the question could be finished. "Bosa!" Baldinger quickly

The San Francisco 49ers have lost running back Raheem Mostert for the season. On Sunday, his knee injury against the Detroit Lions thrust rookie Elijah Mitchell into the spotlight. Mitchell delivered an impressive 104 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. It was a performance that earned him a Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week nomination. The Niners will miss Mostert's contributions this season, and we may have seen the last of the veteran running back in red and gold. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next year. For now, it seems many believe San Francisco will lean on Mitchell to carry the load for the rest of 2021. This morning, ESPN's

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.
