Reese: Richburg could start

General Manager Jerry Reese said second-round pick Weston Richburg will be given the chance to start right away, despite the offseason signing of J.D. Walton (Abramson and Samuel, May 21).

Walton is recovering from an ankle injury that kept him sidelined for all of 2013, but he said he is 100 percent (BBB, May 20).

“Nothing wrong with competition He’s a good kid,” Walton said (Schwartz, May 20).

Reese pretty much said the same thing about the JPP of TEs 2 years ago!

Hey Jerry, go back to your desk and let Tom make the roster decisions!

@Lyle Weiser  .... Yeah, but if Tom had his way, no rookie would EVER start. Last year he had no choice with Pugh, because Diehl was banged up so much.
