    Agent For Keith Rivers Says There Will Be Talks With Giants About Return

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/02/21/...-about-return/

    Excerpt: "When the New York Giants originally acquired linebacker Keith Rivers from the Cincinnati Bengals for a fifth-round draft pick, they did so with hopes that he would stay healthy and prove to be a steal. Unfortunately, that did not happen and Rivers was plagued with a variety of injuries, as he has been his entire career.

    The five-year veteran ended up playing in only 11 games, mostly as a reserve, collecting 44 tackles and recovering one fumble. However, he did show flashes that once led to him being the 9th overall pick in the draft, and it may have been enough for the Giants to consider bringing him back in 2013.

    “There will be discussions with the Giants about Keith returning," Rivers' agent, Andrew Kessler told the New York Post." Read more...

    Honestly I still think he is worth the risk. When he is actually on the field the guy this guy is a sideline to sideline speedster with good size and strength, exactly the type of LB the giants are looking for to defend against running qbs and the option. He is most probably not going to play an entire season but it cant be any worse than this year.

    Is he willing to take vet min? Maybe some incentives based on how many games he actually plays?

    Rivers has to improve from a health standpoint before he commands any significant money!

    when healthy he can be a beast but who knows how healthy he can be?:

    The guy was a high draft pick that was traded for not that much not long into his career and he missed a bunch of time. How much could he ask for?
