"I just haven't been able to stay on the field as much as I would like," Rivers told "Hopefully, it's a new beginning and everything is behind me and I'm ready to do it on the big stage here in New York."

A member of the illustrious group of USC linebackers to wear No. 55, he will be reunited in the Big Apple with former Trojan teammate Terrell Thomas. 

Rivers was in southern California recently for the celebrity racing challenge at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana.
