Detroit Lions trade for Eli Harold of San Francisco 49ers



SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Continuing the tradition, the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions agreed to trade for the third consecutive preseason on Thursday, with the Niners sending linebacker Eli Harold to the Lions.

In return, the 49ers will receive a conditional seventh round in 2020, a source that ESPN has confirmed. MLive.com first reported on the terms of the deal. The condition is that Harold must be on the list of Lions for four weeks, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Harold goes to Detroit after three mostly disappointing seasons in San Francisco. Harold has played in all 48 games over the past three seasons, including 23 starters over the past two years.

Harold, who had originally provided support for Edge Rush, did not make much of an impact there with five sacks in three years. Last season, Harold entered a different role than Sam Linebacker. Although he only had two sacks, he was solid in the running game, especially as a defender in the defense system of the defense coordinator Robert Saleh.

"Our entire organization would like to thank Eli for his hard work and his contributions to our team and the Bay Area community over the last three years," said 49ers General Manager John Lynch in a statement. "He has always represented the 49ers in class and has been a great teammate, and we wish Eli and his wife Kelsey nothing better in the years to come."

With Harold's departure, all three of the 49ers went to protest in the knee of social injustice during the national anthem have now left the team. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick dropped out of his contract before the 201

7 season, and safety Eric Reid became a free agent in the offseason. Neither has signed with another team.
