Could Richburg miss the entire 2020 season? Matt Miller did a mock draft for BR and cited that as a reason we go Ruiz at 31. This is the first time I've seen this written as a possibility

Matt Miller has been wrong a lot lately.

I have my concerns about Richburg but I believe it was either before the SB or a little after where he was being interviewed and he didn't seem to have any concerns about coming back.

It was fairly recent (after SB). That said who knows how healthy he will be and if he can stay healthy for the year.
He seems to always be hurt.

Time for an upgrade?

Didn't he tear his patellar tendon? If so, that's a career threatening injury from my understanding and tough to come back from. Wouldn't be surprised at all if we draft a center high, or even trade for one. Upgraded center play could've been the difference in getting that sixth ring.

I would be OK with picking up a center as well. I'm going to scoop the draft sub to see who is out there.

especially if we can trade the 31 pick and maybe trade cj for a 6th or others.. we can get some extra picks and do what you say which is a smart idea,

Dude, it's Richburg. He's been on I.R. every year for 5 straight years. It's certainly plausible.

I'm not saying this is wrong, but I don't ever remember a player saying "I'm actually going to be out for most of the off-season into the next year..."

You're right...had to go check. Officially, he didn't wind up on I.R. in 2017. But only played 4 games. I.R. in NY too. Semantics but thanks.

He's a pretty average C when he is healthy. And it looks like another off season of rehabbing. We paid him to be a top C so this is very disappointing, indeed.

He must be close to the edge. Time to draft his replacement?

Very underrated need IMHO. Garland is a "get by guy" but C is crucial to Kyle's system. It's so surprising he hasn't drafted one young C to groom behind Richburg this whole time. Then again, he trusts veterans more so it looks like he's leaned on FA's instead for that.

He was fine to play his last yr in NY. He talked about being able to play but NY wanted to place him on IR because they sucked. He said he was never gonna resign with NY based on the way they handled him that yr (contract yr).

I tied fo tell you about Richburg when you wanted SF to sign him...when he's healthy he's better than avg he's just never healthy

Restructuring his contract means he's not going anywhere. Possible they draft a versatile interior OL just in case. Makes much more sense then taking a OT at 13 then pushing him inside
