Giants Acquire LB Keith Rivers From Bengals

The New York Giants have acquired linebacker Keith Rivers from the Cincinnati Bengals, according to the team.

“We’re excited to have another talented player in the mix for our defensive staff to work with,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “We try to create competition at every position, and Keith will definitely bring some competition to our linebacker group.”

Rivers, a former first-round draft choice who spent four years with the Bengals, was dealt for an undisclosed pick in the upcoming draft.

“I’m excited to get a fresh start and brand new beginning,” Rivers said. “You can’t ask for more than to be playing for the defending world champions and be in New York.”

Rivers did not play in the 2011 season after having wrist surgery last summer.

“This is an excellent opportunity for him to have a fresh start,” Coach Tom Coughlin said. “Keith is versatile enough to play the outside on first and second down and he can play on third down because he runs well. And he’s fast enough to rush the passer.”
