Linebacker Keith Rivers believes he could be a steal for the New York Giants, since they only gave up a fifth round pick in exchange for him this offseason.
“I was the ninth pick in the draft,” Rivers said yesterday. “Anywhere near that [level of play for the Giants] and it’s beyond a steal. It’s armed robbery.”
If Rivers plays well this season, he may receiver a nice long-term deal in exchange. But what really motivates him is to prove that he can still play at a high level.
“For me it’s more about proving to myself that I am who I was and nothing has changed,” he said.
