49ers hire Parys Haralson as director of player engagement

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.

Then, he has San Francisco surrendering the No. 12 overall pick and a 2022 second-round selection to the New York Jets, moving down to No. 23 and getting quarterback Sam Darnold in return.

Steve Young calls possibility of 49ers replacing Jimmy Garoppolo with a rookie 'intriguing'

Jimmy Garoppolo must be the favorite to be the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback after the Los Angeles Rams outbid everyone for Matthew Stafford, right? You still have names like Deshaun Watson, who may become available at some point. However, that acquisition is likely to require an unprecedented deal. Jason La Canfora recently explained why the 49ers might not last long in a bidding war against other teams. Then you have other names like Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold. In the minds of most Niner fans, neither feels like much of an upgrade over Garoppolo. You also have the upcoming draft. San Francisco could find an heir apparent there. Or maybe the

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in several other directions in 2017 with the first selection of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era. They could have selected a franchise quarterback in a draft that included both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Last weekend, Lynch spoke of the decision to pass on Mahomes, who he would face three years later in the Super Bowl. "That will probably haunt me for a while because I remember going to his Pro Day," Lynch said. "We were in a different place as an organization, and we had a different plan for quarterback because we really weren't -- I remember going to his pro day doing my job but really as kind of a smokescreen
