The team also signed seven players to the practice squad: wide receivers Bam Childress and C.J. Jones, fullback Kyle Eckel, linebacker Corey Mays, tackle Clint Oldenburg, defensive lineman Santonio Thomas and tight end Jason Rader.
Rivers, in his sixth year, had been released Saturday by the Patriots. He played previously with the Giants and Texans. He has played in 75 NFL games over five seasons.
