In fact, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, that is the likely scenario: Richburg is likely to end up retiring.
But for now, the 49ers have restructured Richburg’s contract, clearing $6.875 million in salary cap space for 2021. The 49ers are in decent cap shape, with more than $20 million in cap space.
