The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday night because neither team had announced the trade. It wasn't clear what compensation the 49ers would receive in return.
Haralson departed San Francisco team headquarters Monday night after saying his goodbyes before the team began a late practice, acknowledging that he had been traded while providing no further details other than, ``I'm outta here.''
Saints outside linebacker Will Smith will be sidelined for the season with a knee injury, a person familiar with the situation said. Victor Butler also is recovering from knee surgery that will sideline him most or all of the season.
The Mercury News first reported the trade was with New Orleans.
AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in New Orleans contributed to this story.
