After missing the 2012 season with torn triceps, 49ers outside linebacker Parys Haralson will take a significant pay cut to remain with the team, the NFL Network reported. Haralson, 29, who was scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.57 million, will receive $1.3 million in 2012, with a chance to make an additional $400,000. The restructured contract provides additional salary-cap room for San Francisco, which cut the 2013 salary of wide receiver Mario Manningham by $1.8 million last week. Manningham tore two knee ligaments on Dec. 23 and is not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Similarly, Haralson will take a pay cut after an injury marred season. Slated for a backup role behind Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith, Haralson sustained a torn triceps in the third preseason game at Denver and was placed on the season-ending injured-reserve list. The 49ers signed linebacker Clark Haggans to fill the void, but the 13-year veteran only played 50 snaps last year. As a result, Brooks and Smith rarely came out of games: Both played more than 92 percent of San Francisco’s defensive snaps.
