Cowboys Reach Agreement With LB Keith Rivers On A One-Year Deal

Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports that the Cowboys have signed veteran LB Keith Rivers to a one-year contract.

Rivers was released by the Bills back in February in a move that cleared $1.7 million in available cap space.

Rivers, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals back in 2008. He spent five years with the Bengals before was traded to the Giants in return for a 2012 fifth-round pick that ultimately became S George Iloka.

Last year, Rivers appeared in 12 games for the Bills and recorded 16 tackles. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 192 snaps to go with a below average rating.
