Mariano Rivera: Back For Another Year With Yankees Staff

Update: Rivera (knee) officially agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the Yankees on Thursday, CBS' Sports Jon Heyman reports.

Recommendation: In what has become a seemingly never-ending tradition, the 43-year-old Rivera will once again be back as the Yankees closer, assuming his recovery from an ACL tear continues to go smoothly. Trying to guess when Rivera will reach the end of the line has been a fruitless exercise in the past, and since he's coming back from a knee injury rather than a serious arm ailment, there remains little reason to doubt Rivera will turn in another excellent season.
