Harold, 26, was a 2015 third-round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent his first three NFL seasons. The 6’3, 243-pound native of Virginia played 48 games in red and gold, starting 24 of those contests while tallying 85 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, five sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. A trade in the summer of 2018 sent Harold to the Detroit Lions where he would go on to play in 13 games, recording 10 tackles, four sacks and four tackles for loss that season. The University of Virginia alum spent parts of 2019 with the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles.
