Ex-Giants center Weston Richburg to sign with 49ers

Weston Richburg Giants

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Richburg agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers on a five-year deal.

The Colorado State product was a second-round pick of the Giants in 2014, and he immediately bolstered the trenches.

The San Francisco 49ers need to build an offense around Jimmy Garoppolo, and they're fortifying the offensive line with Weston Richburg.

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.

Richburg played in just four games with the Giants last season because of a concussion, and he wasn't happy when he was placed on injured reserve in early November with nine games remaining.

He was the last defendant in the case to stand trial, with previous defendants being sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison. Faces of nearly all the people present inside the courtroom at the time, including the judge is blurred in the video.

And considering he's still young, the Niners making this investment appears smart. Brandon Fusco, 29, who started 16 games at right guard, is a free agent. Richburg started his National Football League career as a guard, but has opened the last three seasons as the Giants' starting center. Kilgore's injury history, though, is less of a concern with Richburg on the roster.

The specifics of the contract are not yet known, although San Francisco still has over $67 million available in cap space, per Over the Cap, prior to Wednesday's free agency opening.

He is the ideal size at 6-foot-3, 298 pounds to start on the offensive interior in head coach Kyle Shanahan's zone blocking scheme.

At guard, 2017 starter Laken Tomlinson and Joshua Garnett, a 2016 first-round pick who sat out a year ago with a knee injury, have been expected to compete for starting spots.
