Jason La Canfora reports that the Bengals have dealt former ninth overall pick Keith Rivers to the Giants for a fifth-round pick. The Giants lost a couple of linebackers to injury last year, but Rivers also missed the entire season with a wrist injury. It's an interesting buy-low move on a player who has been dinged up for most of his Cincy career. I'm not sure why the Bengals are bothering for a late fifth-rounder. maybe this is one of those situations where they were pondering releasing him anyway?

An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
