The free agent market has exploded for Weston Richburg

Emlen'sGremlins : 3/7/2018 8:35 am
Hopefully our new regime knows what they're doing as it pertains to Richburg because it's really hard to trust the decisions made by the old one. Either way, there's big interest out there for him in FA.

Good for him  
Dr. D : 3/7/2018 8:49 am : link
bye bye.
He was never strong at point of attack

I am glad he will land on his feet....but our experiment with him is over

Great, let him leave.Helps us with complementary picks, although  
yatqb : 3/7/2018 8:53 am : link
with the amount of FAs we're likely to sign, it might not help enough.
Hope he signs for $15mm a year!!!

Get us a 3rd round comp pick
If we donít plan on resigning s player - the more his market explodes the better for us and the player.
We get COMPLEMEMTARY picks?

How COOL is that. Knowledgeable fans here..
I would have interest in WR  
Chris684 : 3/7/2018 9:07 am : link
in a weak market but not a competitive one.

Unlike Pugh, I think Richburg can significantly improve if he gains strength/weight but thereís also risk that never happens.

I think Flowers will be the only man left next year.

by the way - he started an account here expressly to post his own stories
I find in really weird that he had that one very promising season  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/7/2018 9:17 am : link
and then nothing.
Had he shown anything in the last two years that would be one thing  
BillT : 3/7/2018 9:22 am : link
But given what we've seen it's hard to believe we could or would resign him. We know at his best he's a pretty good player. Some other team will and he'll probably revert to his year two form. Just the way it goes.

I don't even blame 247 at this point. It's the posters that not only believe their crap but then link to it.

Amen to that. Though w all these main sites for news going the way of Twitter twats, I guess at least itís something substantial to read
The free agent market has exploded for Weston Richburg?  
M.S. : 3/7/2018 9:32 am : link

I wouldn't bring this guy back even if he offered a steep home team discount, which he won't.

Which is A.O.K. with me.

Please, someone clear this guy's locker out ASAP.
His first year at Center he was great at  
Simms11 : 3/7/2018 9:46 am : link
getting out in space and making key blocks upfield, but he always got consistently pushed back by larger tackles right over him.
It is time to clear out the offensive line  
Thatís Gold, Jerry : 3/7/2018 10:01 am : link
room...there's been a poor attitude there for years not to mention underachieving, highly drafted players of which Richburg was one.

We will see at least four if not five new starters this year. If we sign Norwell, I see a center and another guard being drafted. Not sure what will happen with Flowers but, unless he performs a miracle, he has played his last game at LT for the Giants.

It will be a new group this year...sayonara Weston! Wherever he goes, he will be vastly overpaid.
I would think the fact he was put on IR in Nov.  
montanagiant : 3/7/2018 10:19 am : link
Due to a Concussion he got in early Oct. would make anyone a bit hesitant
Loudest noise this time of year...  
Racer : 3/7/2018 10:29 am : link
..comes from the agents.
For the love of God...  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/7/2018 10:39 am : link
247 is a joke.
Hes not a bad center  
sharpshooter66 : 3/7/2018 11:32 am : link
He played on a bad team with a bad and predictable scheme, and the oline depth is thin in FA. Better someone else overpays him than us, plus we get a comp pick

Jerry, I like your thinking. Sometimes the only way you
can get rid of a stench is to burn it down. New coaches,
new section of locker room, new assistants, new players,
new attitude. They are part of the offense and they must
be heard and they must listen. Nothing has worked with
the OL since McNally & FA's signed 84 & 85.
LOL let the bum play Guard, that will be fun  
est1986 : 3/7/2018 11:55 am : link
I would love to see Snacks, OV, DT, JPP and company abuse Richburg in another jersey. Bye bye.

Aside from just linking to other reporting, I believe he got the only fact of his own in the story wrong - isn't Jones an RFA this year?

Tim Jernigan knows more about quality centers than writers and Internet boards, I think . Is that safe? He said Richburg is one of the strongest centers heís gone up against . Kind of belies the ďmovement -finesse ď cliches that get thrown around . Add Parcells and his commentary about the difficulty in finding the complete center, and you see why heís getting interest .
he's a relatively young  
Mr. Nickels : 3/7/2018 2:56 pm : link
high draft pick with a lost season to injury on a miserable year. I bet if he played for some other team a lot of us would be clamoring to sign him.
Correct....  
Doomster : 3/7/2018 3:31 pm : link
After his first season as center, teams had film on him......and it showed up the next season where they attacked the center of the line....
This is like..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 3/7/2018 3:49 pm : link
the 5th time Emlen has posted a link to a ridiculous 247 sports article that he positions as being widely reported.

While I certainly can understand that he has no clue how shitty those articles are, it can just as well come off that he's intentionally linking there.
I mean it's obvious someone is going to gamble on Richburg.  
FStubbs : 3/7/2018 5:30 pm : link
Former 2nd round pick who looked good in 2015. It's obvious a few teams would think they could get him back to that 2015 level. Maybe they even succeed. It's just not going to happen here and we have a decent center option in Jones, who has outplayed Richburg.
