Free agent spotlight: OLB Parys Haralson

The New Orleans Saints have 13 players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents on March 11. Here’s a breakdown on outside linebacker Parys Haralson:

Position: OLB (part-time starter)
Age: 30
Height: 6-0
Weight: 255

Scouting report: The Saints probably got about exactly what they expected from Haralson last year when they acquired him in a late-August trade with the San Francisco 49ers for a seventh-round pick. He was a solid member of the rotation -- primarily in run packages -- while playing 37 percent of the Saints' snaps.

Haralson made eight starts and appeared in every game in the regular season before going down with a season-ending torn pectoral in the playoff opener. He finished the regular season with 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

Before joining the Saints, Haralson spent seven years in San Francisco. He started there for five years before missing all of the 2012 season with a triceps injury. Haralson has primarily been a 3-4 outside linebacker in his career, with a total of 232 tackles and 25 sacks.

Projection: I could see Haralson coming back in a similar role, as long as his salary is minimal. He was a solid addition both on the field and in the locker room. And the Saints could continue to use him in run packages. However, the Saints could also opt to go younger at the position.

The Saints will have more depth at outside linebacker this year, with veteran Victor Butler returning from the knee injury that sidelined him all of last season. They already re-signed veteran backup Keyunta Dawson. Young backups like Rufus Johnson and Kyle Knox could push for greater roles. And the Saints could add even more young talent in the draft.

I like this cat. He really does play the run well.

My guess is he could get on a 2-year deal for 3 to 3.5 million or something like that. Is he worth that on the current salary structure?

It was, but that injury concerns me. Isn't it his second? Can a torn pectoral really be healed?

He has had a torn tricept and a torn pec. As to whether it can be healed depends on how it was torn, if connective tissue was town then it can be reattached, if the belly of the muscle it self came apart, then there isn't much that can be done.

After Dr. Oak, perhaps he needs a second opinion.... Dr. Oz perhaps?

+1. I like the toughness he brings, but only at a discount.

he needs to work on elongating the muscles. reps vs max out
bulk looks good on the beach but it needs to balanced in sports. common training room mistake.
