“We’re excited to have another talented player in the mix for our defensive staff to work with,” said general manager Jerry Reese.
Rivers, a first round pick for the Bengals four years ago out of USC, was a starter his first three seasons before spending last season on the reserve/non-football injury list. He had wrist surgery in July and spent the season in rehabilitation.
“I’m excited to get a fresh start and brand new beginning,” Rivers said.
In 35 career games Rivers has been credited with 246 tackles.
“Keith is versatile enough to play the outside on first and second down and he can play on third down because he runs well,” said head coach Tom Coughlin.
