GIANTS ACQUIRED LB KEITH RIVERS IN EXCHANGE WITH BENGALS
Tue, 17 Apr 2012 02:17 AM EDT

The NY Giants traded their 2012 5th-round pick for Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers. NFL odds

Rivers, the No. 9 general pick out of USC in 2008, missed all of last season with a wrist injury and still has to play a complete season due to injuries.

It’s a low-risk deal for the N.Y Giants, who hope to improve at linebacker by dealing the No. 32 pick in the 5th round for a one-time top-10 pick who hasn’t reached his potential. The Giants as well have 2 4th-round choices this year thanks to a league-awarded compensatory pick. NFL spreads

“I’m excited to get a new start and brand new beginning,” Rivers asserted in an announcement released through the Giants. “You can’t ask for more to be playing for the defending world champions and be in N.Y.

New York also added depth to its offensive line and supplementary by signing previous Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Sean Locklear and previous New England Patriots cornerback Antwaun Molden.

Locklear has played in 105 regular-season games with 82 starts in 8 NFL seasons, including starting all 19 games at right tackle during the Seahawks’ run to the Super Bowl in 2005.

The New York Giants have an opening at right tackle with free agent Kareem McKenzie not anticipated to come back. David Diehl may potentially move over to right tackle.

“I prefer right (tackle),” Locklear expounded in declaration released by the team. “That’s the role I played the most.”

The Giants have tried to affirm their supplementary by re-signing Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson, Michael Coe and Justin Tryon while adding Molden and safeties Stevie Brown and Chris Horton in free agency.

The Giants wish to assemble competition at as many positions as possible and Rivers, who turns 26 years old in May, will need to come in and show himself. He played only 7games his rookie season thanks to a damaged jaw he suffered on blindside block by former Steelers receiver Hines Ward. Rivers also missed 3 games in 2009 due to a calf injury but finished with 72 tackles and a sack. He played through a plantar fasciitis foot injury in 2010, appearing in 15 games and making a career-high 77 tackles and registering a sack.

“This is an excellent opening for him to have a new start,” Coughlin recounted. “Keith is versatile sufficient to play the outside on 1st and 2nd down and he can play on 3rd down because he runs well. And he’s fast enough to rush the passer.”

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell frequently used 3 safeties over the last 2 seasons but Rivers gives Fewell options with a linebacking corps that includes Boley, Mathias Kiwanuka, Jacquian Williams, Greg Jones, Mark Herzlich, Clint Sintim and Spencer Paysinger. Kiwanuka could probably play more defensive end going forward after playing in a hybrid position last season.

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