The Rundown

Gerald Rivers has been on six different teams since arriving to the NFL in 2013 out of Ole Miss. A converted defensive end, Rivers has found his place as an outside linebacker. Despite being in the league since 2013, Rivers has only appeared in two games in his career.  

Outlook

A practice squad player since arriving, Rivers is a depth player for training camp. Three of the spots are filled at the position and, with younger and more athletic options vying for the roster, Rivers is currently on the outside looking in. 

Roster Situation

Working to save his NFL future.
