Richards is a smart player who isn't playing a smart game right now. To me it looks like Richards is playing a similar style of play from last year, but is making more mistakes & paying for them.

I'm Not sure if it's age or fear of getting another concussion but he just doesn't seem involved in the play.

When a few of us floated the idea of him being bought out 6 weeks ago we were laughed off the board. Now it seems like a reasonable consideration.

Even if Richards did improve his play this season, looking ahead to next season & with his age & cap hit a buy out has to be considered. Richards isn't going to age like so many of those fine wines he enjoy's, he will just get older, slower more prone to injury & less productive.
