EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Linebacker Keith Rivers has signed a new one-year deal with the New York Giants.

Rivers, a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, was traded to New York for a fifth-round pick on April 11, 2012. He missed five games with the Giants because of a slow-healing hamstring injury.
Rivers, 27, has never played a full season, and sat out all of 2011 with the Bengals after undergoing wrist surgery.

"Anytime you step on the field you have something to prove. Me? More so," Rivers said. "Obviously, I have to prove I can stay healthy. I haven't necessarily been able to be trusted to stay healthy. Hopefully, taking a big rest this offseason will help me do that."

Rivers had 44 tackles last season.
