Rivers working hard in NFL
Tight end Marcellus Rivers suddenly became the second-teamer when Dan Campbell defected and signed on with Dallas, which doesn't make head coach Jim Fassel or tight ends coach Mike Pope overly comfortable because Rivers is a lousy blocker. He defended himself by saying, "right now I'm an average blocker, but I know what I have to do and all it takes is hard work and technique." That could, in fact, be said about any position and any player. Rivers was a three-sport (baseball, basketball, football) All-State selection out of Douglass High School in Oklahoma City, Okla. "I wanted to go to college so I told a few baseball teams not to draft me," he said. "But then when I finished [at Oklahoma State] nobody called, so I signed with the Giants."
