Ex-Giants center Weston Richburg to sign with 49ers

Ex-Giants center Weston Richburg to sign with 49ers

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the team has added another significant piece to the mix with the expected addition of former New York Giants offensive lineman Weston Richburg on a five-year deal.

Although they missed out on All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell, who was expected to be an interior replacement for Richburg, the Giants were never in play to re-sign their 2014 second-round pick. However, he sustained a concussion in Week 4 a year ago and the injury ended his season.

In Richburg's absence, the Giants will likely turn to Brett Jones to take over the starting role permanently, after filling in for Richburg as he battled through various injuries last season.

The San Francisco 49ers entered the National Football League offseason as one of the teams strapped with a plethora of salary cap space to make moves to reshape their roster ahead of the 2018 campaign. After missing three games, the Giants placed Richburg on injured reserve in November.

And considering he's still young, the Niners making this investment appears smart.

Richburg is likely to bump out to guard, especially after the 49ers inked incumbent center Daniel Kilgore to a three-year deal. Brandon Fusco, 29, who started 16 games at right guard, is a free agent. Kilgore's injury history, though, is less of a concern with Richburg on the roster.

How much cap space do the Giants have? Richburg's ability to move quickly from side to side on bootlegs and zone runs should help the Niners' O-line considerably.
