This is definitely the kind of depth we needed. Still only 27 which is unbelievable.

Good deal.

I'm so happy I get to say PLAYBOY all year now. Laughing

Good signing though, we needed CB and LB depth in the worst way and we've filled both slots. Rivers is perfect as a depth player. Never stays healthy full time but used sparingly and he can be a solid contributor.

I just realized in the last two off-season the Bills have added 4 former 1st round picks.

Jerry Hughes, Manny Lawson, Chris Williams and now Keith Rivers.

I just think thats very interesting.

Hopefully our recent trend of making them no longer suck, also keeps going. Laughing

I remember thinking highly of him on draft day. Didn't pan out, hopefully he plays better here.

3 good picks out of 4 aren't bad. LOL
Peace

Does this mean they plan on keeping Kiko at MLB or do you think they will still look for a starting MLB in FA or the draft?

I wouldn't say the Bills were ever LOOKING to draft an MLB to move Kiko outside - I think Kiko's skill set just gives us that option if the opportunity presents itself..

I dont know if this changes anything.. Rivers is definitely an OLB - but we have so much need at LB that if I see a good LB at a good value I go for it still..
