The multi-talented linebacker will likely line up at WLB replacing Landon Johnson who signed with the Carolina Panthers. Rivers not only is a good tackler but he can be moved around the defense to create havoc on opposing offenses. If Cincinnati can get MLB Ahmad Brooks back healthy, they could start to build a really nice group of young linebackers.
