The New Orleans Saints need serious help at outside linebacker. They added a new name to the mix Monday.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the Saints have acquired linebacker Parys Haralson in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported that the compensation to the 49ers (if Haralson makes the Saints' roster) is a seventh-round draft pick. The 49ersofficially announced the trade Tuesday.
Now Haralson enters a situation where he could be in line for significant playing time. It says everything about the Saints' plight.
