Giants acquired WLB Keith Rivers from the Bengals in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft.
It's the last pick in the fifth round, so it's as close as you can possibly get to the sixth. Rivers developed a bit of a "soft" reputation in as the former No. 9 overall pick in the draft with Cincinnati, but he was not averse to playing through injuries and is a quality run defender when healthy. Look for Michael Boley to start at middle linebacker for the Giants. Rivers should handle the weak-side duties, with Mathias Kiwanuka on the strong side.

Best thing that could happen to him (Rivers)

Be interested to see the contract details, but probably a timeshare with Williams (out on passing downs with JW in) on the cards or a straight/ vanilla camp battle perhaps if the contract is "right"? :dontknow:

Rivers is due $2.16M in the last year of his deal. I don't think the Giants are going to rush to give him a new deal just yet.

Dont blame them

Forgot it was a trade and so time left. good point.

Looks like a good deal for both sides - at least Cincy got something back

It'll depend on who the last LB on Cincy's roster is, but I doubt this is the case. Giants paid very little for a potential starter instead of feeling like they needed to address the position early on draft day and they wouldn't find anyone in free agency with half the upside of Rivers.

Zimmer's complained about Rivers and Maualuga for the past 2 years as not doing enough and not adpating enough. The fact they got something, is an unusually astute move for a player pretty close to being benched permanently/cut.

Howard definitely looked like he earned the gig after closing out last season, im guessing Moch is the understudy there?

Muckleroy, Skuta & Johnsonwill probably get more looks than last year - but skuta is still a project and muckleroy is coming off a nasty injury. They might get a shot at finding out what theyve got in Vincent Rey if the LB struggles continue.

Maualuga better not have any mortgages or bad debts in Cincy ...

x2

It looks like the G-Men restructured Rivers to make it an even better deal for them. He's now set to make $1.25M this season.

This could mean a lot in New York IDP-wise, or not...but it's definitely become a situation to watch so far as who lines up where.

Id be surprised if its not:

Kiwi - Boley - Rivers (S-M-W)

for at least 2 out of 4 downs. It'll gets murkier in package situations

    Jones could easily come in for Boley on blitz, running & short yardage situations
    Williams could come on for Rivers in passing situations and push him for the starters gig
    Kiwi will potentially have more value than either in sack heavy leagues and less value in normal scoring to the point where if hes classified as an LB you may want to look elsewhere.

"He’s going to play linebacker this year. In our base package he’s a linebacker. When we go to third down, all bets are off."


Basically, it has all the hallmarks of the quagmire it's been best to avoid. Boley offers the most chance at FPts security as he will be on in the most downs, but that wont mean as much as it does on some other teams.
