SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Linebacker Parys Haralson departed San Francisco 49ers headquarters Monday night as the team began a late practice, saying he had been traded while providing no further details.
``I'm outta here,'' he offered.
Haralson said while walking to the parking lot, ``I want to let them announce it,'' pointing upstairs to the team's front office.
He offered handshakes and hugs throughout the locker room while changing out of 49ers gear and into shorts and a T-shirt before leaving.
The NFC champion Niners have depth at linebacker and Haralson found himself in a reserve role beginning a comeback season after missing all of last year's Super Bowl run with a torn left triceps.
New Orleans' injured group of linebackers is in desperate need of an outside linebacker in Rob Ryan's new 3-4 defense.
