GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -Linebacker Keith Rivers joined the Cincinnati Bengals at training camp Wednesday after ending a 10-day holdout. The team's top pick promptly made a rookie mistake.
Rivers did the wrong exercise - jumping jacks - at the end of calisthenics, drawing a round of boos from teammates.
``It shows I haven't been here for a while,'' said Rivers, who participated in a mandatory minicamp in June. ``I forgot how that rolls. Hopefully, next time I'll get that right.''
Rivers, who signed a five-year contract Tuesday night, has some other catching up to do. He missed 12 practices, including the club's intra-squad scrimmage, besides meetings and film sessions.
``He looked like he did last time I saw him,'' coach Marvin Lewis said. ``We'll see how we go through the week and see whether we play him, or how much. Unless I can find something major, I expect him to play some.''
The Bengals open their preseason Monday night at the Green Bay Packers.
Rivers, the ninth pick out of Southern Cal, ran drills with the second-team defense, playing behind third-year player Brandon Johnson.
Terms of Rivers' contract haven't been disclosed.
