Bengals | Team not close with Rivers in talks

James Walker, of, reports the Cincinnati Bengals and first-round draft pick LB Keith Rivers are far apart in contract talks, according to a source. The two sides remain in constant negotiations. The source added that talks could improve dramatically at any time, but as of Sunday, Aug. 3, the team was not close to striking a deal with Rivers. According to the source, the Jacksonville Jaguars' inability to sign DL Derrick Harvey, the eighth overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, one spot ahead of Rivers, is also slowing negotiations with Rivers.
