The Saints have moved quickly after losing outside linebacker Will Smith for the 2013 season.
Smith suffered what NFL.com calls a season ending knee injury. And, hours later the Saints reportedly traded with San Francisco for outside linebacker Parys Haralson.
Details of the deal have yet to be released.
Haralson was a starter from 2009 to 2011. He missed all of 2012 with a torn triceps.
Saints outside linebacker Victor Butler suffered a season ending knee injury in OTA’s in June. Martez Wilson and Junior Gallette have both been injured in training camp.
